With the development of technology, more and more technical issues have been exposed, such as technical disputes, technical barriers and technical crisis. Thus, it is necessary to warn enterprises about technical deviation and predict future technology crises. Patent data can contain much information about technologies and would be useful in this setting. This paper proposes a technology early warning model based on patent data. This model helps enterprises analyse the technical crisis level and trends from four different perspectives (technical stability, technical monopoly, technical security and technical prospects).
