Technology maturity (TM) of product is a crucial index for enterprises. But the existing methods of technology maturity mapping do not always work. By integrating some fruits of Altshuller and Darrell Mann, a technique of mapping technology maturity of product based on patent analysis was put forward. The product lifecycle was subdivided, and the algorithm and approaches of mapping TM were discussed. On the basis of above technique the software named TMMS was developed. As an illustration the TM of butterfly valve was mapped by TMMS.
