Exploring Technology Evolution Pathways to Facilitate Technology Management: From a Technology Life Cycle Perspective

The recently published article "Facilitate Technology Management: From a Technology Life Cycle Perspective" presents a framework for identifying the technology's main evolutionary pathway. What is unique about this framework is that it introduces new indicators that reflect the connectivity and the modularity in the interior citation network to distinguish between the stages of a technology's development. It also shows how information about a family of patents can be used to build a comprehensive patent citation network. Finally, integrated approaches of main path analysis (MPA)—namely global MPA and global key-route main analysis—are applied for extracting technological trajectories at different technological stages.
