Évaluation et pilotage des activités de recherche dans la R&D centrale de STMicroelectronics : nouveaux principes de management de la recherche industrielle pour l'innovation de rupture

Abstract : The semiconductor industry is a science-based sector, and an area where there is clearly a drive for intensive innovation and R&D. Its industrial dynamics are based on competence, skill acquisition and rapid product renewal in order to keep up (and reinforce) the strategic coordination activity described as Moore's law. In addition, these industrial dynamics relate to elaborating this strategic game to include more elements, known as "More than Moore", and to explore what this new coordinated design field could be. More specifically, the context of More than Moore is characterized by disruptive innovation and roadmaps are developed to structure these repeated (mostly planned) technological breakthroughs. The above context is visible in one of the world leaders in the semiconductor industry, STMicroelectronics, and the fast pace and new situation of More than Moore, requires that research evaluation and monitoring should involve original management tools. The activities reported in this thesis, are structured along three research lines: (1) research and absorptive capacity, (2) research and platform renewal and (3) research and industrial property. I suggest that classical research evaluation tools should be extended and discussed. 1-Research has often been considered as a way to improve "absorptive capacity". The design reasoning study in several research projects led us to distinguish Epistemic Absorptive Capacity from a Conceptual Absorptive Capacity. Highly innovative research activities consist in augmenting the latter capacity. 2-Research is often considered as a means to prepare future product generations. Modeling platform renewal logics led us to emphasize an advanced research role: design rule asset renewal. 3-Research is often considered as a way to enhance industrial property. The use of a method derived from C-K Theory (which is called C-K Invent), allowed the development of a new patent design capability.
