12/27

Today, I presented an example of technology map analysis in the class. "Language Identification Technology Patent Map." Basically, a citation analysis is applied to patent documents searched from US PTO database relating to this subject. Through this analysis I found a lot of interesting facts about this technology and major players in this industry. I am expecting you to do the similar analysis in your interested technology area.

As there is no predetermined format nor style of "Patent Map", you can develop your own idea of analysis. The above example is just an example.

The Final Report Assignment

Write a "Patent Map Analysis" report on selected technology or company.  5 to 10 pages including charts and tables. Submission date is 10th January 2006. Final reports of the class participants will be reproduced and circulated for all participants later. Use following patent search databases.

  1. USPTO, USA

Study Assignment

Write a short analysis report (2-4 pages) on overseas R&D (research and development) activities of the U.S. industry. Basic statistical information is provided by U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. The whole data is a bit complicated so that a summary data excel file on R&D performed by U.S. affiliates by country and by industry is prepared. For further information, please visit BEA site. Suggested points of interest for analysis:

-- general trend of U.S. industry's overseas R&D

-- gographical distribution pattern

-- fastest growing host country

-- fastest growing industry

-- relative size of R&D per sales, number of employees, etc.

 

Data source:

  1. Excel file on R&D by host country, and by industry, 1998-2003

  2. Bureau of Economic Analysis
