Technology Rating Grades
  • Technology Rating Grades(TRGs) are KTRS's appraisal results on the technological ability, marketability, business prospects and other business environments of a company with a technology or a technology itself. TRGs are used for technology financing like investments/loans, guarantees and technology transfers, and the feasibility appraisals for technology projects. KTRS is developed to screen promising technologies of SMEs in a timely manner and to minimize investigators' subjectivity.


Structures of TRG
  • Technology Rating Grade
  • - TRG is yielded through the integrated appraisal process by a matrix-wise combination of the
    technology level of a technology business project, namely the possibility of business success,
    and the risk level, namely the probability of default.
  • Technology Level
  • - Technology Level is based on the appraisal points yielded by the weighted scoring model, and
    it reflects the technological ability, business prospects and marketability of a company or a
    technology itself.
  • Risk Level
  • - Risk Level is based on the appraisal points yielded by the LOGIT model, and it reflects the risks
    in technology feasibility of a company or a technology itself.


Definitions of TRGs
  • TRG Definition
    AAA Technological ability is extremely superior.
    Risks in technology feasibility are extremely low
    AA Technological ability is superior.
    Risks in technology feasibility are very low enough not to be affected by the changes of business environments in the future.
    A Technological ability is superior.
    Companies in this level could be somewhat affected by the changes of business
    environments in the future, but risks in technology feasibility are very low.

    CCC Technological ability is normal.
