  • Patent number: 8677958
    Abstract: A switchable lever for a valve drive of an internal combustion engine, which has an elongated housing with two side walls. A crossbar for a gas-exchange valve system and another end of the housing has a hearing for pivotable support of the crossbar. An axle is held nondisplaceably in the side walls. An axially fixed low-lift cam roller is seated centrally on the axle and is flanked on both sides by a high-lift cam roller. The high-lift cam rollers are displaceable: (a) into a first position, away from each other, to toward the side walls such that contact of one high-lift cam per high-lift cam roller is possible, and (b) into a second position, toward each other, such that they are located outside an engagement region of the high-lift cams, and as a result of which contact of a low-lift or zero-lift cam with the low-lift cam roller is possible.

  • Patent number: 8527957
    Abstract: Systems, methods, computer program products, and the like for testing to validate software operations are described. A first part of a test can be executed in a tenant currently having a first system state. The tenant can be transitioned from the first system state to a second system state. The transitioning can have an unknown effect on a business process or business scenario running in the tenant. A second part of the test can be executed in the tenant while the tenant is in the second system state. Upon completion of the test, it can be determined whether the transition of the tenant from the first system state to the second system state negatively impacts the running of the business process or business scenario.

  • Publication number: 20130198103
    Abstract: A received delta message of a first kind, expressed in one interchange format, may be used to modify business record(s) in accordance with the processing of a delta message of a second kind expressed in a different interchange format. Conversely, a delta message of the first kind may be generated to express modifications made to a business record, where the modifications are specified in accordance with a delta message of the second kind.

  • Publication number: 20130127863
    Abstract: Various embodiments of systems and methods for determining optimal an sequence of status transitions for business objects are described herein. In one aspect, the method executed by one or more computers in a network of computers includes receiving a target status for a business object, identifying a source status of the business object, identifying a status schema including one or more transitions from the source status to the target status, parsing the status schema to retrieve the one or more transitions from the source status to the target status, generating a graphical representation illustrating the transitions from the source status to the target status, executing an algorithm upon the graphical representation to determine an optimal sequence of transitions from the source status to the target status, and processing the business object based upon the optimal sequence of transitions to attain the target status.

  • Patent number: 8126588
    Abstract: By providing a look-ahead functionality for a tool internal substrate handling system of process tools on the basis of a process history, the tool internal substrate sequencing may be significantly enhanced. The look-ahead functionality enables a prediction of process time of substrates currently being processed in a respective process module, thereby enabling the initiation of transport activity for substrate load operations in order to significantly reduce the overall idle time of process modules occurring during substrate exchange.

  • Publication number: 20110265750
    Abstract: A switchable lever for a valve drive of an internal combustion engine which has two side walls with ends connected by a crossbar. There is a gas-exchange valve system in the crossbar at one end and a bearing for the pivotable support of the crossbar at the other end. An axle is held nondisplaceably in the side walls, between the ends, with two cam rollers running on the axle. The cam rollers are displaceable axially on the axle toward each other into a first position such that the cam rollers run up to each other on a longitudinal center plane of the lever and away from each other into a second position. One of the positions serves for a high-lift cam contact and the other position serves for a low-lift or zero-lift cam contact.
