This paper presents the creation of a reference stage-gate process model for ideation activities in the early fuzzy front-end of new product development (NPD). The work is based on a unique empirical approach that combines the results from NPD research with insights gained from expert interviews of key innovation stakeholders in industry in order to come up with a list of key success factors for the ideation process. These factors provide the pillars for the design of an ideation reference process model from which company-specific ideation processes can be derived taking into account the organisation's specific context and innovation culture. © 2013 CIRP.

Knowledge mining is a young and rapidly growing discipline aiming at automatically identifying valuable knowledge in digital documents. This paper presents the results of a study of the application of document retrieval and text mining techniques to extract knowledge from CIRP research papers. The target is to find out if and how such tools can help researchers to find relevant publications in a cluster of papers and increase the citation indices their own papers. Two different approaches to automatic topic identification are investigated. One is based on Latent Dirichlet Allocation of a huge document set, the other uses Wikipedia to discover significant words in papers. The study uses a combination of both approaches to propose a new approach to efficient and intelligent knowledge mining. © 2011 CIRP. Source
