“Technology Roadmaps: Implications for Innovation, Strategy, and Policy”
Robert R. Schaller. Ph.D. Dissertation Proposal.
This dissertation proposal describes the process of creating roadmaps, and the different types of roadmaps. He has a section of characteristics of successful roadmaps, which illustrates important qualities that a roadmap should and should not have. He briefly addresses the roadmaps for the semiconductor industry, and reviews its history. It also contains a large bibliography that has many different resources.
“Fundamentals of Technology Roadmapping”
Sandia National Laboratories. Strategic Business Development Department.
This is a “How-to” document that goes through the steps of the roadmapping process. It has a brief intro with types of roadmaps, context for roadmaps, and required skills/knowledge for roadmaps. It then details a three phase plan for how to initiate, implement, and continue a roadmapping project. It briefly reviews the SIA roadmap, and then states its conclusions and future work.
“Why You Should Be Interested in Technology Roadmaps for Compound Semiconductors”
Herbert S. Bennett. Semiconductor Electronics Division, National Institute of Standards and Technology. PowerPoint Slides
This series of PowerPoint slides tells what a roadmap is, details semiconductor trends, and looks at various roadmaps. It shows some of the recent history of roadmaps, details what the role of each entity in a roadmapping process is, and it describes the need to make progress on a semiconductor roadmap.
David Probert and Noordin Shehabuddeen, Int. J. technology Management, Vol 17, 1999
This is a corporate roadmap paper that details a framework that companies should use. It discusses four different analysis, and then it points out several aspects that must be considered when doing a roadmap.
Commonwealth of Australia, August 2001
This paper presents an overview of how to do a technology roadmap for an industry. The first chapter clearly describes the purpose, and the benefit, of a technology roadmap. The second chapter presents a model of a roadmap, and shows the steps that must be taken to complete them. In the third chapter, the key elements of a roadmap are presented. It details how to give a workshop, who to include, and what to say. It also mentions a couple of “case studies” of industry roadmaps.
R Phaal, CJP Farrukh, and DR Robert. Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge
This was an introduction on how to quickly instigate technology roadmaps into a business. It has a four workshop format, which requires the cooperation of both the technical and marketing people. This method was actually tired on four different companies, and the paper presents some of the results of the experiment.
This is a summary of how to do a corporation roadmap. It covers the basic parameters and characteristics of the roadmap. It is a very brief overview, and does not go into much detail.
“A Call to Action – A national Technology Roadmap for Telecommunications”
Technology Futures Inc.
This article describes the importance of roadmaps, and specifically addresses the telecommunication industry. He first analyzes the semiconductor roadmap, gives an overview of the SIA model. The author believes that there is a need for a roadmap in the telecommunications industry, and as such, presents a possible plan.
“The Intel Lithography roadmap”
Intel Technology Journal, May 16, 2002
This is Intel’s roadmap to implementing lithography till the year 2009. It goes through the changing technologies, and what is driving the changes. It describes the manufacturing cycle and life of each technology, and explains how Intel uses a “waterfall” type of life cycle. It evaluates the technologies, and explains why some where chosen over others.
This example has sections that describe the purpose of the roadmap and how it was created. It details the reasons why the roadmap was created, and outline how it was put together through brief summaries of important meetings. This roadmap included several different research labs and government influence.
