At the PIUG Annual Meeting this year, Maddy Marley from GSK presented the motivation for her team to construct a structure-led report for her attorney clients.  In this session, we will show how to use BizInt Smart Charts for Patents to create a structure-oriented index to retrieved CAplusSM references from the results of a structure search in CAS REGISTRYSM on STNext. We will share several possible variations on this report, including showing how to fuse claims from full text patent databases on STNext with hit structure results from CAplus.
