Abstract

Commercial potential is the opportunity of commercialization of the candidate technology. Every new technology to reach market needs to thrive and prosper in a continuously changing and unpredictable business environment. Determination of commercial potential of a technology is a necessary prerequisite element for defining successful commercialization strategies. Commercial potential can be determined by various methods. The focus of this paper is on developing of a Fuzzy system for measuring commercial potential of a candidate technology at the early stage of development before spend the time and effort, based on Strategic Technology Evaluation Program (STEP). Based on STEP, for commercialization, every new technology needs a number of characteristics; these characteristics are broken into some dimensions and this dimensions to some indices. For measurement of commercial potential we use “IF {Fuzzy antecedents} THEN {Fuzzy consequent}” rule. This system uses experts’ knowledge and includes implementation of Fuzzy logic method and terminology. The approach that is described here is simply a framework, which can be modified to fit different situations as appropriate.
