A worldwide search was involved to bring the client technical background and reference data to state-of-the-art in their industry. Many related subjects were identified to provide support to current and future product developments. The worldwide search was completed with computerized search services, patent and literature paper recovery, direct investigation and research, paper review, and generating a technology plan for the use of the discovered information.
