  • Publication number: 20190108452
    Abstract: A method for knowledge management using concept rules includes receiving event data corresponding to an industrial application and generating at least one inference concept based on the event data. The method also includes obtaining a semantic model having a plurality of inference concepts, a plurality of relationships among the plurality of inference concepts, and a plurality of concept rules representative of domain knowledge. The plurality of concept rules is authored using the plurality of inference concepts and the plurality of relationships. Furthermore, the method includes processing the at least one inference concept based on the semantic model to generate inferential data. The inferential data is representative of an inference corresponding to the event data. In addition, the method includes controlling the industrial application based on the inferential data.

  • Publication number: 20150317337
    Abstract: Certain examples provide systems and methods to identify and drive actionable insight from data. An example system includes a configured processor that is configured to: identify, using the processor, a pattern in a data set using an analytic algorithm, the data set associated with a domain; process, using the processor, the identified pattern to assign a score to the identified pattern based on a comparison to statistical model meta data; construct, using the processor, a semantic model modeling people, processes, and systems associated with the domain; combine, using the processor, the identified pattern with the semantic model; determine, using the semantic model and the processor, an output including: a) a root cause for the identified pattern and b) a recommended action to remediate the root cause; and facilitate, using the processor, execution of the recommended action based on a trigger associated with the output.

  • Patent number: 8209251
    Abstract: The cross correlation tool is used to quickly understand and describe the composition of an asset portfolio and the response of a user selected variable versus other variables in the portfolio. The tool is also used to quickly identify unexpectedly high or low correlation between two attribute variables and the response variable. Identification of unexpected correlations improves understanding of the portfolio data and the decisions regarding a potential purchase of the portfolio. Attribute variables are of two types, continuous and categorical. The cross correlations are computed between all variables of interest and their bin or level and presented in a two dimensional matrix for easy identification of trends.

  • Patent number: 7487819
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a method comprising injecting into a thin wall disposable core die a slurry having a viscosity of about 1 to about 1,000 Pascal-seconds at room temperature when tested at a shear rate of up to 70 seconds?1 and a flow index of less than 0.6 at a pressure of up to about 7 kilograms-force per square centimeter; wherein the thin wall disposable core die has an average wall thickness of about 1.5 to about 10 millimeters; curing the slurry to form a cured ceramic core; removing the thin wall disposable core die from the cured ceramic core; and firing the cured ceramic core to form a solidified ceramic core.

  • Patent number: 7171383
    Abstract: An integrated system organizes a company's experiences, operating procedures, best practices, information sources, competitive information and analytical tools. The goal is increasing profitability within a due diligence process while facilitating ongoing operations. The system incorporates a method for collaborating on due diligence issues to affect knowledge building within due diligence teams. The method includes accessing stored, accumulated knowledge in a repository from prior due diligence exercises, applying to due diligence decisions criteria based on consolidated analytical building blocks of past due diligence exercises and storing newly accumulated knowledge from the current due diligence exercise into the repository of accumulated knowledge. Access to this information is available globally via the internet as well as locally.

  • Patent number: 7165043
    Abstract: A method of valuation of large groups of assets by partial full underwriting, partial sample underwriting and inferred values of the remainder using an iterative and adaptive supervised and unsupervised statistical evaluation of all assets and statistical inferences drawn from the evaluation and applied to generate the inferred values. Individual asset values are developed and listed in tables so that individual asset values can be rapidly taken from the tables and quickly grouped in any desired or prescribed manner for bidding purposes. The assets are collected into a database, divided into categories by credit variable, subdivided by ratings as to those variables and then rated individually. The assets are then regrouped according to a bidding grouping and a collective valuations established by cumulating the individual valuations.

  • Patent number: 7096197
    Abstract: A method of valuation of groups of assets by partial full underwriting, partial sample underwriting and inferred values of the remainder using an iterative and adaptive statistical evaluation of all assets. Statistical inferences drawn from the evaluation are applied to generate the inferred values. The assets are collected into a database, catagorized, subdivided by ratings as to those variables and then rated individually. The assets are then regrouped according to a bidding grouping and a collective valuation is established. Simulated bid scenarios are examined for combinations of bid prices and a best bid price according to risk and return is determined.

  • Patent number: 7031936
    Abstract: A method of inferring valuation of large groups of assets by credit scores includes the steps of organizing valuation scores, adjusting valuation scores based on special factors and business decisions, reconciling multiple valuation scores which describe the same assets and making an overall adjustment to override the inferred valuation. Individual asset values are developed and listed in tables so that individual asset values can be rapidly taken from the tables and quickly grouped for bidding purposes. The valuations are collected into a database, divided into categories by credit variable, subdivided by ratings as to those variables and then rated individually.
