  • Patent number: 10571889
    Abstract: A workpiece having at least one physical feature is placed into a workstation fixture having at least one adjustable locator. Measurement data reflecting the position of the at least one physical feature of the workpiece and measurement data reflecting the position of the at least one adjustable locator are obtained. A processor ingests and utilizes the collection of assembly data and the measurement data to define and store in memory at least one ordered pair correlating the physical feature and the adjustable locator. The processor defines a test vector that connects the position of the at least one physical feature and the position of the at least one adjustable locator. The processor to computationally discovers a best fit for adjusting the position of the adjustable locator to register with the physical feature by applying to the test vector a computational optimization process that seeks to minimize the length of the test vector to thereby generate a digital shim vector.

  • Patent number: 10545855
    Abstract: Tools and techniques are described to detect possible holes in automated testing of software under development. Full line coverage by tests does not necessarily indicate actual coverage of execution scenarios, e.g., condition coverage, decision coverage, and other kinds of execution scenario coverage may be lacking even when all source code statements are nominally covered. When source code changes are submitted, and corresponding test-sets remain unchanged, users are notified that adequate testing is not assured by the current test-set. Testing assurance code in a development tool chain may flag a pull request, test-set, or source code submission to indicate a lack of testing assurance. In some cases, an assurance-enhanced tool may require that new or different tests be provided with updated source code as a prerequisite for that source code to be accepted for inclusion in a repository or a build, for example.

  • Patent number: 10540573
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are described for automated computer text classification and routing using artificial intelligence transfer learning. A server captures historical story data from an Agile development tracking system. For each completed story, the server generates a vector based upon story-specific features and assigns a label to the vector based upon a cycle time associated with the story. The server trains a classification model using a neural network on the vectors and labels. The server captures new story data from the Agile development tracking system. For each new story, the server generates a vector based upon story-specific features and executes the trained model on the vector to generate a cycle time prediction for the new story. Based upon the cycle time prediction, the server identifies deficiencies in the new story and generates an alert message.

  • Patent number: 10489168
    Abstract: Aspects of an application program's execution which might be subject to non-determinism are performed in a deterministic manner while the application program's execution is being recorded in a virtual machine environment so that the application program's behavior, when played back in that virtual machine environment, will duplicate the behavior that the application program exhibited when originally executed and recorded. Techniques disclosed herein take advantage of the recognition that only minimal data needs to be recorded in relation to the execution of deterministic operations, which actually can be repeated “verbatim” during replay, and that more highly detailed data should be recorded only in relation to non-deterministic operations, so that those non-deterministic operations can be deterministically simulated (rather than attempting to re-execute those operations under circumstances where the outcome of the re-execution might differ) based on the detailed data during replay.

  • Patent number: 10489193
    Abstract: Live migration of a hardware accelerated application may be orchestrated by cloud services to transfer the application from a source server to a destination server. The live migration may be triggered by probe circuitry that monitors quality of service metrics for migration conditions at the source server. When live migration is initiated by the cloud services, a snapshot of all state information relevant to the application at the source server may be saved to network attached storage accessible by the destination server. Changes to said state information at the source server may be mirrored onto the network attached storage. The destination server may copy the snapshot and subsequent changes and run the application in parallel before taking complete control of the application. After a handshake operation between the source and destination servers, the application may be shut down at the source server.
