PATENT DOCUMENTATION SERVICES

CES, Inc. provides developmental document services to the inventor who is working to patent their product. In most cases, the inventor is seeking intellectual property (IP) protection using an initial filing of a patent with the US Patent & Trademark Office, (USPTO). The CES patent documentation services are provided to help the inventor develop a concise document database for the productís intellectual property protection. This database is very helpful when working with a patent services group, attorney, or agent during the IP protection process.

Engineering Concept Paper (ECP):
this report evaluates the invention from an engineering standpoint to help the inventor make an informed decision on whether to proceed with IP protection process. The document begins with a general overview of the invention as described to CES, Inc by the inventor. Then it describes the general engineering concepts of the design, assembly, and any anticipated manufacturing, packaging, or regulatory problems. The document typically is from 2 to 3 pages in length and provides the inventor independent data to evaluate their productís manufacturability and whether to proceed with the property protection process. The document takes from 4 to 5 weeks to complete and requires a comprehensive written description, including copies of any drawings or pictures, of the product from the inventor to start the process. CES recommends that this effort be conducted prior to any other IP process.
