In this paper, we present a Decision Support System (DSS) framework for innovation management. The proposed framework utilizes the data acquired by a web based questionnaire which is filled in by the upper managers of the manufacturing companies. The DSS compares their answers with the responds of the other companies existing in the database of the DSS and determines the weak points of the company which have room for further improvement and at the same time significantly affect innovativeness. Finally, the DSS automatically generates two reports. The first report benchmarks the company with the others and the second report suggests policies that might be helpful to improve the innovativeness of the company.
