This paper proposes a cross-displinary methodology for a fundemental question in product development: How can the innovation patterns during the evolution of an engineering system (ES) be encapsulated, so that it can later be mined through data analysis methods? Reverse engineering answers the question of which components a developed engineering system consists of, and how the components interact to make the working product. TRIZ answers the question of which problem-solving principles can be, or have been employed in developing that system, in comparison to its earlier versions, or with respect to similar systems. While these two methodologies have been very popular, to the best of our knwoledge, there does not exist a methodology that reverse-engineers, encapulsates and represents the information regarding the application of TRIZ through the complete product development process. This paper suggests such a methodology, that consists of mathematcal formulation, graph visualization, and database representation. The proposed approach is demonstarted by analysing the design and development process for a prototype wrist-rehabilitation robot and representing the process as a graph that consists of TRIZ principles.
