Abstract: Previous research on Technology Roadmap (TRM) has paid little attention to enhancing the efficiency of roadmapping processes. Out of various ways to improve the efficiency, one possibility is to promote the interaction between TRM and other management tools. And so the main purpose of this research is to link TRM successfully with other tools. For this purpose, a web-based supporting system is developed, as web-based characteristics facilitate knowledge formation and distribution across the overall enterprise planning systems. The proposed system will ensure easy creation, dissemination and upkeep of TRMs and also enables controlled, integrated and retrospective management of technologies.

Keywords: technology roadmapping; TRM; web-based systems; internet; efficiency; roadmap integration; technology planning; roadmap control; roadmap management.
