  • Patent number: 9378454
    Abstract: A handheld cup counter is disclosed. The cup counter may have a mechanical or optical sensor used to count the number of brim portions within a stack of cups. In order to properly position the optical or mechanical sensor, the sensor is disposed in relation to a ridge plate that helps the user to properly align the sensor to the stack of cups so that the sensor may accurately sense the number of brim portions within the stack of cups. The cup sensor may also have additional calculator functionality that works in conjunction with the sensed number of cups in order to more efficiently add and subtract the sensed number of cups of a plurality of stack of cups.

  • Patent number: 8715777
    Abstract: In a method in which a cut line is formed on one surface of a planar glass material, and the cut line is allowed to extend in the thickness direction of the glass material, thereby cutting a glass substrate from the glass material, the cut line is selectively formed on a surface having relatively small surface waviness out of two opposing surfaces of the glass material. In the case of a glass material formed into a planar shape on a molten metal, the surface which has come into contact with the molten metal is selected as the surface having relatively small surface waviness. When a disk-shaped glass substrate is cut from the glass material, cutting is performed under conditions where either one of the thickness and the radius of the glass material and the maximum height of surface waviness of the glass material satisfy a predetermined relationship.

  • Publication number: 20040255265
    Abstract: The invention provides a method for computer-implemented management of a project using project management software. The project is defined by a series of development phases wherein each development phase of the project must be evaluated by one or more predetermined standards. Each of the standards defines a set of quality assurance steps to be followed in order to achieve compliance with the standard for each phase. Such a method includes the steps of selecting one of the development phases, displaying a reporting screen containing reporting instructions for the selected development phase, which instructions relate to compliance with the quality assurance steps for that phase according to at least one of the standards, inputting reporting information concerning the selected development phase, and saving the reported information concerning the selected development phase.
