专利分析用大数据的力量来帮助您预测审查程序的结果,包括预测专利审查员在审查过程中将如何处理申请的每一步。 通过统计数字和指标分析审查员之前的行为,您可以更好地理解和预测TA接下来的行为。

LexisNexisPatentAdvisor® 为您详细提供审查员在PTO期间的全面报告。 可视化数据、热图和各种各样的指标可以轻松地构建审查员的行为特征,以便更好的预测他们在检查过程中将做出怎样的决定。

以下一些专利分析可以帮助您回答问题。

哪些是困难重重的技术中心?
从分析中,您可以看出哪些技术中心可能会对您的申请构成障碍,在授权之前需要克服巨大的困难。通过比较您申请的技术中心的授权率与审查员的平均授权率,以及其他技术中心的审查员授权率和技术部门的授权率,更好地了解您得到授权的几率。

审查过程可能持续多久?
您还可以使用分析数据来预测审查所需时间。使用从PTO收集的数据来确定您可能面临多少次Office Action,平均审查员对Office Action的响应时间以及授权或拒绝之前需要等候的时间。 将审查员的反应时间与您的申请所在技术中心的整体反应时间进行比较,看看您的申请是否表现正常,或是优于平均、低于平均,以便及时调整策略。

这个审查员是否接受会面?
通过研究分析报告,您可以了解与审查员会面是否带您向授权更迈进一步。 PatentAdvisor™统计数据可以帮助您轻松比较审查员通常会面的几率及预测结果,会面后的申请更可能被授权、被放弃还是收到最终或非最终Office Action。 这使您可以预测即将步入会面程序的申请是否可以带来期待的结果。

我的审查员经常要求提RCE?
通过分析可以预测审查员是否可能需要您提交下一个RCE。 您查看RCE之后立刻授权的情况的统计数据,以及在最终结果之前提交多个RCE情况的统计数据。 了解RCE和下一个Office Action之间平均花费的时间,决定怎样提交下一个RCE。

他们的放弃率?
分析可以发现审查员的另一个事实:他们的放弃率。 使用统计信息,您可以查看特定审查员在所在技术中心比其他审查员更容易放弃申请。 这一类的情报在早期审查过程中、在您制定申请策略时,可以今早为今后潜在的困难做好充分的准备。 

这些只是您从PatentAdvisor中能够获得关于审查员的情报的一部分。
