Abstract: A controller corresponding to production equipment, requiring upgrade can be selected automatically, thereby reduction in operating rate can be reduced. When software is upgraded, version upgrade software relating to a predetermined action description and version information are transferred to a controller management apparatus (S1). A version change determination unit selects a controller including the predetermined action description described in the version information (S2 and S3). The selected controller downloads the new version of software to change the software (S4 and S5) after stopping operation of the production equipment. On the other hand, a controller not selected does not download the software, and the operation of the production equipment is not stopped.

Abstract: A tire is provided with a tread pattern comprising a series of a number N of tread design units arranged repeatedly and circumferentially of the tire in a sequence and having a number m of different circumferential lengths. A first pulse train is defined by viewing the tread design units as pulses arranged in the same sequence as the tread design units at intervals which are defined by the circumferential lengths of the corresponding tread design units expressed in term of a ratio to one of the number m of different circumferential lengths. A maximum value Pmax of amplitudes P(k) (k=order from 1 to 2N) of frequencies obtained by Fourier transforming the first pulse train is limited to specific values.

Abstract: A tire has a tread pattern comprising a series of a number N of tread design units arranged repeatedly and circumferentially of the tire in a sequence. The tread design units have at least two different circumferential lengths. Viewing the tread design units as pulses, a pulse train is defined. Magnitudes of the pulses are proportional to the circumferential lengths of the tread design units. The average of the magnitudes corresponding to the different circumferential lengths is limited to 1.00. Maximum value Fmax of amplitude F(k) of k-th order (k=1 to 2N) of frequencies obtained by Fourier transforming the pulse train is limited to be 4.52?0.0125 N. The amplitudes F(k) and F(k+1) of every two of the adjacent orders (k) and (k+1) are limited so as not to satisfy a condition that both of the amplitudes F(k) and F(k+1) are 2/3 or more times the Fmax.
