In this research is presented a method for technological capabilities assessment in a company in transformer industry. Used and discussed criteria in this technique are merely developed to assess technological capabilities in transformer industry. Based on literature, technological capabilities in transformer industry are divided into three main categories: production capability, development and investment capability, and innovation capability. For assessing each of the above mentioned using four technology components as an entry and indicators of different technological capabilities assessment models, and for quantifying different components, it is required to use Atlas technology model. It is required to mention that indicators relating to transformer production industry have been recognized and technological capabilities status has been determined. Finally, it could be concluded that how the level of this company is in terms of production capability, development, and innovation capability. From the conducted studies in the case, some technological capabilities indicators, effective factors in technological capabilities enhancement are drawn and procedures to increase technological capabilities are presented. Finally, problems and obstacles are identified.
Keywords: Technological Capability, Technology Assessment, Technology level, Transformer
