Methods & Tools

The Goldfire Innovation Task workflows call upon embedded tools and proven methods for creative thinking and concept generation.

Goldfire Methods include Value Engineering and TRIZ (The Theory of Inventive Problem Solving).

Goldfire Tools, which serve as the building blocks of Goldfire’s structured Innovation Tasks, include:

  • Innovation Trend Analysis
    Patent analytics
  • Researcher
    Semantic navigation and query of patents, Knowledge Bases and other technical libraries and content
  • Device or Process Analyses
  • Root Cause Analysis

Precision Concept Retrieval

Goldfire Innovation Tasks are enriched by just-in-time retrieval of precisely relevant concepts extracted from internal and external knowledge. Goldfire’s semantic processing technology has the unique ability to capture the "meaning fingerprint" of each processed sentence, recognize attributes and relationships of the sentence’s Subject, Object, Action and Effect, and then extracts and organizes concepts. Goldfire’s semantic processing technology can perform across documents in English, French, German and Japanese.

Fusing proven innovation methods for generating ideas along with advanced technologies for accessing precise concepts from corporate and worldwide knowledge sources, Goldfire stimulates creative thinking and speeds inventive problem solving - helping product development engineers, scientists and researchers to quickly conceive and validate ideas thus fueling product pipelines.
