With AULIVE’s patent search software, you can build up a data pool for a technology, a manufacturer or an inventor, for example. This data pool is then used for various analyses. This distinguishes the software from other patent search engines. These usually focus on the patent attorney or engineer who is looking for an infringement of a patent. Here, however, the name says it all: the search is for inspiration from the patents. The patent databases are used as a BigData pool, which is tapped to get ideas for one’s own problems.
Thus, this software fits very well to TRIZ methods like the effect databases, the function oriented search, the reverse function oriented search or the S-curve analysis. Since the founder also has a TRIZ background, other methods such as ideality or the system operator are also supported with special analyses.

In the picture the principle function of the software is explained. From the database of all patents, a patent pool is created for a topic that is of interest. The various analysis options of the software are then applied to this pool. These processed data are then to be interpreted with the help of the search and method knowledge. This leads to the fact that one can acquire knowledge, develop analogy ideas and win new realizations in short time.
