Abstract

A portfolio analysis of composing elements using a synthesiological method has been carried out for complex technology development, which involves fusion of various technology systems and elemental technologies. To assess the method's effectiveness, a case study was conducted on GERAS (Geo-environmental Risk Assessment System), a system for soil contamination diagnosis. The analysis spanned the entire development phase, from the generation of research ideas to the dissemination of results to society. The benefit of using this method was greater ease in system design and social implementation, through the analysis of critical components in the developmental process. I also discuss applying this method to novel areas, such as the development of technology for reconstruction after The Great East Japan Earthquake Disaster.
