The rapid development of communication and information technologies not only reduces risk but also strongly influences the ability of industrial companies to develop innovation activities faster and more purposefully. A dynamic and difficult to predict environment has been created in which companies are forced to flexibly seek alternative solutions to the negatively influencing factors in their operations. There are numerous tools and models for strategic development and evaluation of innovation. Most of them describe the problem statically, i.e. at some point in the company’s development until the components of time and innovative aging are taken into account. The purpose of this article is to propose a new approach to modeling innovative aging. In this way, the influencing factors will already be present in the methodology for innovative development. Therefore, a new, integrated, approach of methods and tools is needed to realize an effective innovation system.
