MARKET-IT is a project financed by the European Commission ( FP7 project – GA 311517), which aims to demonstratethe technical and market feasibility of the application of advanced web semantic technologies to innovation processes within organizations of any dimension and sector, with initial focus on small and medium enterprises operating in manufacturing industries.
The project, starting from a prototype developed in a previously performed collaborative research action, will develop an validate an information system composed by three main modules:
- An advanced Document Management System (DMS): based on state of the art technologies, able to support browsing and advanced searching of documents, as well as suggesting tags based on pre-developed ontologies to easy the search and usage of available knowledge;
- An information search and extraction module, capable to apply advanced search techniques as well as Natural Language Processing techniques to identify documents and patterns within documents related to specific technological systems that needs to be innovated.
- A TRIZ (theory of Inventive problem solving) based Innovation Tool module, which supports users in modeling their technological systems and in applying advanced innovation management techniques such as TRIZ and QFD (Quality Function Deployment).
The MARKET IT system is supposed to be used by organizations of any dimension willing to implement an approach to systematic innovation. It can be used as a service through a web browsers, or installed in the organization premise.
