  • Publication number: 20030225769
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method is provided for defining interesting portions of a workflow of a business or other type of process. Using a tracking profile editor, a portion of a given workflow is selected and associated with a named process part. Items of payload data to be used in reports are selected from a message schema associated with the given workflow. A profile is generated based on the given workflow and the selected items of payload data. A tracking profile compiler receives the created tracking profile and generates a star schema, a flattened view and OLAP cube based on the tracking profile. An interceptor extracts monitored workflow events and stores event information to a tracking stream, based on the tracking profile. A tracking service extracts information pertaining to the monitored events from the tracking stream and stores the information in the queryable database. The OLAP cube and the flattened view are updated based on the information written to the queryable database.

  • Patent number: 6565903
    Abstract: A dual-voltage, energy saving, electric pressure cooker is designed with a thermally insulated cooking pot, spaced-apart support members on the bottom of the pot to prevent food from sticking to the bottom, a unique, hinged, sauce-pan style handle for sealing and unsealing the pot using one hand, a built-in modem that supports the remote operation of manual or preprogrammed cooking controls by telephone or computer. The energy saving is accomplished in a two-mode pressure cooking process. Cooking mode one is active heating or steaming for a short, but controlled period of time, as the liquid inside the pot reaches a temperature of approximately 120° C. (250° F.). Heating is then discontinued and foodstuffs are subsequently cooked to perfection in a second cooking mode wherein latent heat from the first cooking mode completes the cooking process without additional heat being added.

  • Patent number: 6282717
    Abstract: An adjustable garment shirt for allowing different sized persons to be able to wear the shirt by allowing the wearer to be able to tighten and pull drawstrings together allowing multiple panel sections to cover different and varying sized bodies. Drawstring type laces criss-cross back and forth between rows of lace holes that are located on the edges of panels on the garment. The ends of the drawstrings can have hook and loop fastener ends that attach to different locations on hook and loop fastener rectangular patches located on the panels. The further along the fastener tie end is located on the rectangular patch, the closer the panels connect to one another. Extra flap materials can exist between the edges of the panels so that modesty of the wearer can be maintained.
