  • Publication number: 20210148082
    Abstract: A work machine includes a controller (20) that performs an area restriction control for controlling at least one hydraulic cylinder (32a) of a plurality of hydraulic cylinders (32) in such a manner that a work device (400) is located on or on an upper side of an optionally set target surface (60) during operation of an operation lever (26). In the work machine, if a jack-up angle (?) as an inclination angle of a machine body (1A) relative to a ground is larger than a preset target value (?t), the controller, in performing the area restriction control, corrects the control of the at least one hydraulic cylinder (32a) in such a manner that the jack-up angle approaches the target value. The target value is set such as to vary according to posture of an arm (406).

  • Publication number: 20210117483
    Abstract: A first user request which specifies a target document set wherein a first subset of the documents is flagged by a user. A primary flag table is created for the target document set. A first document subset is created matching the first user request. It is determined whether a number of flagged documents exceeds a first threshold. If so, a secondary flag table is created for the first document subset and flag data corresponding to the first document subset is stored in the secondary flag table. The flag data in the secondary flag table is merged into the primary flag table.
