  • Publication number: 20210123850
    Abstract: A method for predicting a change of at least one state variable, which characterizes a service life and/or performance of at least one air filter, includes the following steps: detecting at least one value of at least one influencing variable, on which the change in the at least one state variable per unit of time depends; detecting a time period for which the influencing variable having this value acts on the at least one air filter as a time duration; supplying the at least one value of the at least one influencing variable to at least one model which supplies an output quantity that is a measure for a contribution made to the change in the at least one state variable per unit of time that is caused by the at least one influencing variable; and determining the change of the at least one state variable.

  • Publication number: 20210060473
    Abstract: A method for providing an air stream for a system, in particular a plant, includes the following steps: a. specifying an air requirement and a required degree of air purity of the system having the plant, and storing the values in a memory unit of a control module; b. cleaning the air stream in a filter module comprising filter elements; c. providing the air stream through the filter module to air inlets or air outlets of the system as a provided air stream; d. detecting a magnitude of the provided air stream and of an actual degree of air purity by a sensor system; e. comparing a magnitude of the provided air stream and of the actual degree of air purity to the stored values; and g. calculating a performance characteristic of the filter module. A volume of the provided air influences the performance characteristic.

  • Publication number: 20170341005
    Abstract: A filter cartridge has a filter medium that is formed in such a way that it surrounds a central through-passage, wherein the central through-passage has a first opening and ends at a cartridge base, and wherein the filter medium extends between the first opening and the cartridge base and thereby forms an elongated filter body, which may influence the average ascent speed of air and bring about an optimum filtration operation, wherein the filter medium is rectangular or square-shaped at one end of the filter cartridge and is rounded at the other end.

  • Patent number: 9070104
    Abstract: A method and system to manage tasks are described. The method may provide a graphical user interface to allow a user to identify a first task context and associate a plurality of first tasks with the first task context, and to identify a second task context and associate a plurality of second tasks with the second task context. The method may associate at least one of the plurality of first tasks with at least one of the plurality of second tasks.

  • Patent number: 9002950
    Abstract: A method and a system to file relayed e-mails is provided. The method includes receiving an e-mail, the e-mail including addressing information in an e-mail header and an the e-mail body. The e-mail is parsed to obtain the addressing information from the e-mail header and the e-mail body, after which the addressing information is extracted from the parsed e-mail. This formation is stored and used to generate a participant list, which is provided to the user. The user relies on this participant list to file e-mails in e-mail folders associated with a participant that the user selects from the participant list. The participant list is presented to a user to enable the user to select a participant from the participant list.

  • Patent number: 7805327
    Abstract: Techniques for making transformations between combined and individual workflows are described. For example, a first party, such as a first enterprise, may have a pre-determined workflow designed to implement a plurality of tasks. Similarly, a second party may have its own pre-determined workflow designed to implement a separate plurality of tasks. All of the tasks associated with the first workflow and the second workflow may be combined into a combined workflow having a task order that, when executed, provides a desired result of a business collaboration between the first party and the second party. Ordering tasks operable to implement the order of the combined workflow also may be added to achieve the desired result.

  • Patent number: 7653562
    Abstract: A workflow model is described. In one example of the workflow model, a first workflow is associated with a first party, and a first workflow view is used to represent an abstraction of the first workflow. Similarly, a second workflow is associated with a second party, and a second workflow view is used to represent an abstraction of the second workflow. Then, a coalition workflow view referencing the first workflow view and the second workflow view provides a collaborative workflow that specifies tasks that the first party and the second party are required to perform. In this way, multiple parties may easily partner with one another to accomplish a business objective, while maintaining a level of confidentiality of their workflow processes.

  • Patent number: 7350188
    Abstract: A workflow model is described. The workflow model includes a workflow that includes actual tasks, and a workflow view, or virtual workflow, that includes virtual tasks. Each of the virtual tasks is associated with at least one of the actual tasks. The workflow and virtual workflow are compiled into an aggregate workflow. By implementing the aggregate workflow in a workflow engine, the workflow and virtual workflow are executed concurrently and in synchronization with one another.

  • Patent number: 7272816
    Abstract: Techniques for modifying an abstraction level of a workflow are described. For example, a workflow may be analyzed to determine a first plurality of tasks, and the first plurality of tasks may then be combined into a first virtual task within an abstracted workflow. Then, the first virtual task may be linked to the first plurality of tasks, such that a virtual execution of the abstracted workflow corresponds to an actual execution of the workflow. In this way, the abstracted workflow may be shared with other parties, while a level of confidentiality associated with the workflow is preserved.
