  • Publication number: 20190002771
    Abstract: The invention provides a process for the catalytic reforming of hydrocarbons comprising contacting the hydrocarbon feed in two or more sequential catalyst zones. The initial catalyst zone is a fixed-bed system and contains an initial catalytic composition comprising a platinum component, a germanium or rhenium component, a refractory inorganic oxide, potassium and a halogen component and then there is a terminal catalyst zone with a terminal catalyst composition that has a similar composition but with an essential lack of potassium. The addition of potassium was found to improve the yield of C5+ hydrocarbons.

  • Patent number: 7272588
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media are for generating service order count metrics. A selected subset of all customer order information is extracted from a database table and stored in a summary table and detail table. The information, including text strings associated with communication device identifiers, is extracted for a selected period of time, linked together by order number, and stored in a completions table within a local database. The completions table is searched in cycles according to different search criteria of decreasing order of reliability in order to reconcile the order information in the completions table with the completed order count from the summary table. Once the orders in the completions table are accurate, logic is employed to count the number of communication device identifiers from the text strings corresponding to each order number.

  • Publication number: 20070100876
    Abstract: The status of a plurality of service orders is summarized. A first data set that includes a plurality of records corresponding to service orders, such as requests for initiation of telephone or other communications services, is imported into a database application. At least one query or test may be executed on the first data set to generate a second data set that includes at least part of the first data set and one or more labels that have been appended to at least some of the plurality of records in the first data set. This second data may be imported into a spreadsheet application so that the spreadsheet application can automatically generate a summary of at least some of the data contained in the second data set.

  • Publication number: 20050102310
    Abstract: Data is automatically retrieved from a DataBase 2 (DB2) database using a DB2 scripter module that is configured to automatically log on to the DB2 database, to automatically perform a query of the DB2 database, and to automatically extract from the DB2 database a dataset that results from the query. A dataset processor module is configured to convert the dataset into a text file, and to deliver the text file to a delivery site, for retrieval by the user. The DB2 scripter module can extract the dataset by printing the dataset to a DB2 virtual printer and/or by exporting the dataset to a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) site.

  • Publication number: 20050102254
    Abstract: Data is automatically loaded into a user database from an external data source based on a schedule. A determination is made as to whether a task schedule has been satisfied. An application database and the user database are opened using a batch process based on the determination. A macro may be used to load data from an external data source into the user database. A task scheduler may be used to invoke the batch process. The application database may be an Access application database. The macro may remove data from predefined fields in the user database, and then may load data from the external data file into at least some of the predefined fields of the user database. The macro may be used to quit the user database and the application database after the data is loaded into the user database.

  • Publication number: 20050080664
    Abstract: A service order processing in a service order process, e.g., an end user migration (EUM) process, is monitored. Respective series of successive time samples of service order information for respective service orders of a population of service orders are generated, the service order information including respective status identifiers that indicate a relationship of respective service orders to a stage of the service order process. Transitions in the status identifiers are identified. Records of the identified transitions and corresponding times of the transitions are stored and analyzed to determine completion intervals for the stages. An aggregate measure of progression of the population of status orders through the service order process is computed from the determined completion intervals. The computed aggregate measure may be stored in a spreadsheet. The invention may be embodied as methods, systems and computer program products.
