Patent Evaluation with a Numerical Real Option Method

Abstract:

Numerical analysis for supporting patenting decisions is a difficult topic due to uncertainty and inaccuracy in estimating connected future cash-flows accurately. We present how the fuzzy pay-off method for real option valuation can be used to support patent evaluation and decision-making. We illustrate with a numerical two-phase case.
