  • Patent number: 10370083
    Abstract: An apparatus and method of a wing fold system may include a latch assembly rotating an unfixed portion of a wing, with respect to a fixed portion of the wing, between a flight position of the wing and a folded position of the wing. A first portion of the wing may hold a rotating portion of the latch assembly. A second portion of the wing may hold a secured portion of the latch assembly. The rotating portion of the latch assembly may rotate between an open position and a closed position. A slot in the rotating portion may receive the secured portion of the latch assembly. A securing portion of the rotating portion may secure a secured portion of the latch assembly.

  • Publication number: 20160125341
    Abstract: A system for presenting graphic depictions of a workflow in a workplace gathers information to help it automatically identify the workflow. The system presents surveys to human resources and receives responses to develop various segments of the workflow. The system resolves any gaps by using the received responses to identify additional human resources who should receive surveys. It then presents surveys to the additional human resources, receives additional responses, and uses the additional responses to complete the workflow.
