NEW PROTOTYPE DESIGN PROCESS — INTEGRATING DESIGNING AROUND EXISTING PATENTS AND THE THEORY OF INVENTIVE PROBLEM-SOLVING King-Lien Lee Department of Electro-Optic Engineering, National Taipei University of Technology, Taipei, Taiwan 542, R.O.C. Key Words: systematic innovation, design-around, the theory of inventive problem-solving, patent infringement, light guide panel ABSTRACT To guarantee a higher efficiency in research and development as well as substantial returns oninvestment, it is essential that corporations reduce the costs incurred by R & D departments. This paperproposes an integrated process of systematic innovation for redesigning prototypes. This processintegrates a technology analysis, patent design-around strategies, innovative design methods in thetheory of inventive problem-solving, and rules of patent infringement judgment. It is expected that aredesign of prototypes of light guide panels by design-around strategies to avoid infringement ofexisting patents can be used to illustrate the integrated process.
