  • Patent number: 11900020
    Abstract: A construction management system allows a user to capture an item identifier from an item (e.g., shipment, group of components, and/or one or more components) using a mobile device. The item identifier may be used to identify a project and access a model for the product, identify a component in a model, and/or identify the components in a shipment for staging purposes. Moreover, the system may be used to identify a status for the one or more components. The status may be that the one or more components are shipped, received, staged for assembly, installed, or the like. The status of the one or more components may be automatically updated by capturing the item identifier. Moreover, the user may also select shipment information for past, current, and/or future shipments in order to identify the one or more components associated with each of the shipments.

  • Patent number: 11900017
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide systems, methods, and computer storage media directed to optimizing engagement with a display during digital assistant-performed operations in response to a received command. The digital assistant generates an overlay having user interface elements that present information determined to be relevant to a user based on the received command and contextual data. The overlay is presented over the underlying operations performed on corresponding applications to mask the visible steps of the operations being performed. In this way, the digital assistant optimizes display resources that are typically rendered useless during the processing of digital assistant-performed operations.

  • Patent number: 11886792
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, methods, and computer program products are disclosed for at least semi-automated generation of model documentation. In an example embodiment, a template corresponding to a model is selected. User input populating portions of a build notebook is received. The build notebook comprises a model identifier identifying the model and executable code. The build notebook is executed using an execution engine to cause an intermediary file encoded in a type-setting system to be generated. Executing the build notebook causes cross-references of elements of the model documentation to be mapped to appropriate locations within the intermediary file. The elements comprise graphical representations of results of model tests executed on the model and/or extracted or user-defined artifacts required for the model documentation.
