  • Patent number: 10104259
    Abstract: A setting support apparatus calculates a degree of a job executed until a standby time from a value obtained by totalizing number of times of jobs executed by a job execution apparatus at each standby time after a previous job is terminated. The setting support apparatus receives input of a transition time to a power saving mode set in the job execution apparatus. The setting support apparatus outputs information relating to the degree of the job executed by the job execution apparatus until the transition time of which input is received based on a calculation result.

  • Publication number: 20180254944
    Abstract: A method of providing access to stored and compressed log information of one or more image forming apparatuses is disclosed. In response to receiving a request for log information, the stored log information is searched based on the received request. An expansion range of the log information is determined based on the searched log information and predetermined setting information. The log information corresponding to the determined expansion range is expanded. A browsing request to browse a portion of the stored log information is received. The portion of the stored log information is transmitted. An association between the log information browsed based on the browsing request and the determined expansion range is machine learned. A correction to the determined expansion range is determined based on the learned association. The correction is stored as the predetermined setting information.

  • Publication number: 20180246637
    Abstract: A method for displaying an image selected from a plurality of images on a touch screen includes following steps. The steps are displaying an image among the plurality of images, each of which is associated with different one of consecutive identification numbers, and upon detecting a writing operation of a numerical value, storing the numerical value in a memory. When a first swipe operation in a first direction is detected after the writing operation, one of the images associated with an identification number that is equal to an identification number of the displayed image plus the stored numerical value is displayed. When a second swipe operation in a second direction opposite to the first direction is detected after the writing operation, one of the images associated with an identification number that is equal to the identification number of the displayed image minus the stored numerical value.

  • Patent number: 10025777
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a user interface screen creation supporting system presents, to a screen creator, a design template for supporting creation of a user interface screen operated by an unspecified large number of guests. The user interface screen creation supporting system includes a guest-information acquiring unit, a template selecting unit, and a template presenting unit. The guest-information acquiring unit acquires guest information concerning the guests who operate the user interface screen. The template selecting unit selects, on the basis of the acquired guest information, out of a plurality of template groups stored in a predetermined storage region in advance, design templates that should be presented as selection candidates. The template presenting unit presents the design templates selected by the template selecting unit to the screen creator.

  • Patent number: 9840105
    Abstract: A system in an embodiment includes an image forming apparatus, an erasing apparatus, a first apparatus, and a display unit. The image forming apparatus forms an image on a sheet using a decolorable color material. The erasing apparatus decolorizes an image. The first apparatus computes, from a reduction in the number of sheets achieved by a setting for image formation in the image forming apparatus, the amount of a reduction in environmental burdens achieved by use of the image forming apparatus and computes, from the number of sheets erased by the erasing apparatus, the amount of a reduction in environmental burdens achieved by use of the erasing apparatus. The display unit simultaneously displays the amount of the reduction in environmental burdens achieved by the image forming apparatus and the amount of the reduction in environmental burdens achieved by the erasing apparatus.
