  • Publication number: 20240086742
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for creating and executing a decision network that includes a number of stations configured to operate with respect to an instance of a document, container or other object. A user interface may be presented to a user that includes selectable options for configuring and connecting stations within the decision network, and for establishing executable logic for each station to modify or create data within fields of a container instance. Different stations in the decision network may be assigned different permissions with respect to the container. Individual stations in the decision network may be configured to determine a prediction or probability based on data accessible to the given station, where the prediction or probability of one station may be based in part on an earlier prediction or probability determined at another station of the decision network.

  • Publication number: 20230109462
    Abstract: A pick providing two plectra is a laminate of two conjoined planar components. A first component comprises rigid material providing at one end a grasping portion and at an opposite end a plectrum portion as a rounded point suitable for plucking. The second component comprises flexible material providing at one end an upper portion for joining to the first component and at the other end a plectrum portion as a rounded point suitable for strumming. The pick is grasped by a player at the grasping portion of the first component. By angling the attack of the pick, the player may then employ either the plectrum of the first component for picking strings or the plectrum of the second component for strumming strings.

  • Patent number: 11268616
    Abstract: An envelope gasket features a bonded construction. In one example, a virgin PTFE envelope is bonded to a pair of microcellular or expanded PTFE filler material annular rings. The PTFE filler annular rings are then bonded together around a corrugated metal insert ring (on the inner and outer diameter), thus sealing inside microcellular or expanded PTFE. Alternatively, when using expanded graphite filler material annular rings, the PTFE envelope is bonded to the expanded graphite filler rings by pressure and heat, and the filler rings are bonded to each other by pressure during the bonding process.

  • Patent number: 10100623
    Abstract: A pumpjack is operated continuously over a sequence of two adjacent pump stroke cycles, by energizing an electric motor to operate the pumpjack over a first pump stroke cycle according to a motor speed profile over a plurality of discrete control periods within the cycle, while receiving sensory feedback from one or more sensors. In response to the feedback, and while continuing to operate the pumpjack, one or more speed adjustments are made to specific control periods, so as to alter the motor speed profile while continuing to operate the electric motor to drive the pump jack. The intra-cycle control optimizes flow while reacting to detrimental and changing conditions.
