Creating a table of patent metrics: it is possible to create a chart or table of patent metric values to use as part of an analysis
Usefulness: this table of patent metrics can be very useful for determining which patents within a portfolio being analyzed should be identified either for their inherent value and/or for out-licensing (or in-licensing), depending on the type of data being analyzed. It can also be used as part of a comprehensive review of a portfolio to determine which patent(s) to non-renew.
Begin: the creation of the table begins after a thorough search with meaningful results. The search can be around a particular technology or a specific company. The first step in creating the table is to proceed to the analysis module by clicking into the blue button icon at the bottom of the center panel of search results
Analysis Module: once in the analysis module click into the button called Charts. This will take you to the recommended list of charts including the Key Invention Metrics. Click into Key Invention Metrics.
Key Invention Metrics: Upon opening the Key Invention Metrics, it shows the table built with the default metrics including patent strength, all forward citations (count), geographic coverage, generality, litigated (counts) and opposed (counts).
Key Invention Metrics customization: it is possible to select or customize the metrics to show different metrics from the default ones. Begin the customization process by clicking into the Data button on the top left of the screen.
Click into "Data" >> then into one of the metrics to replace it with a different metric, e.g. Geographic coverage >> then into one of the groupings, e.g. Generic indicators >> then into other .. indicators, e.g. other generic indicators >> then select the metric of interest, e.g. age
Click into all the metrics to either delete them, notice the tiny X in a circle next to each metric, and/or to change them.
N.B: remember that its possible to click into More to see more metrics
Sort by Metric of choice: in the example below, the default metrics have been deleted and/or replaced by the patent evaluation indicators.
Final and sortable configurations: the new chart looks like the screenshot below, note the new/different metrics and it' s sorted by Patent value.
