Abstract

Analysis of relationship among various technologies may result in technology maximizing profits. Weighted association rules are proposed to determine dependencies across technologies. The proposed approach recognizes uneven importance of patents and technology class in terms of their technological impact and commercial significance. The proposed analysis approach is illustrated with a case study. (C) 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
