Open innovation theory is expurgated from many outstanding foreign corporates R and D practice. Not only does these corporates be in possession of intensive internal R and D, but also they search external technology sources, fully absorb and utilize them to fill their own lack of R and D. On the basis of the open innovation theoretical research at home and abroad, this study studied the influencing mechanism of corporate knowledge search on production innovation and put forward related theoretical framework.
