Based on relevant literature and theoretical consideration on management for patent resources, a theory of inter-enterprise collaborative management for patent resources (ICMPR) based on multi-agent was proposed. We put forward 4 main function modules, including collaborative recommendation, collaborative analysis, collaborative application and system server management, to support ICMPR. The ICMPR can be good to solve those tough and important problems, such as patent cross licensing among enterprises, early warning analysis of patents, collaborative technology innovation and other issues. The ICMPR can provide enterprises with practical methodology, and improve the overall competitiveness of world manufacturing industry.
