Construction and Application of the Patent Knowledge System for Supporting Product Innovation
Patent which as a carrier of knowledge contains abundant information, is an important resource of supporting innovative design. Based on the analysis and organization of the patent information of mechanical and electrical fields, this article proposes a proprietary database system for product design innovation. Through a combination of TRIZ and FBS solution process, it can provide support in the product design stage. Finally, an example of folding bike design is listed to explain the application of the patent knowledge base.
