Innovation management implies transversal manifestation of a development cycle within the organization, featuring an information flow and the coordination of processes that involve both human resources and heterogeneous systems. The complexity of this cycle leads to the concept of interoperability, which can be considered as the ability to exchange information and use them. Interoperability assessment may help the identification of the main barriers towards innovation management within an

This paper proposes an interoperability assessment model for innovation management in a Research & Development company, characterizing a diagnosis process on its potential interoperation. The assessment method is based on the Analytic Hierarchy Process, organizing the knowledge (innovation attributes) in interoperability perspectives and inferring the maturity level of the organization.
