  • Publication number: 20180089604
    Abstract: Described are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for performing real-time supply chain response planning. Described embodiments operate by receiving, from a client device, a request that specifies a quantity of a product requested by a deadline. Then, a list of constraint variants associated with the product is identified from a constraint variants table. Each constraint variant in the list is associated with a net-availability table stored in a column-store in-memory database. Based on the constraint variants table, a required capacity for each constraint variant in the list to satisfy the request is determined. To determine whether the required capacity is satisfied for each constraint variant, the request is simulated within a current supply chain plan by aggregating an available capacity for each constraint variant using one or more columns of the associated net-availability table. Based on the simulated request, a result is sent to the client device.

  • Patent number: 9442968
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer program product for evaluating variant configuration using in-memory technology. Embodiments receive configuration data and a selection condition to be solved, bring Boolean selection condition expressions into disjunctive normal form (DNF) in memory, join concrete configuration values with the selection condition, and compare values. Embodiments aggregate the comparison results per AND-group with a minimum function, and aggregate those results per OR-group with a maximum function and output results of the selection condition for a concrete configuration. Embodiments may employ SQL Script statements. Embodiments may use conjunctive normal form (CNF) instead of DNF with corresponding aggregation ordering. Embodiments may extend the pure normal forms to enable calculations, string operations, evaluation of non-fixed-value literals, multi-valued literals, in-lists, and variant tables by translating and integrating them into the pattern of conjunctive and disjunctive aggregations.

  • Patent number: 9141641
    Abstract: According to an example embodiment, a method may include accessing, by at least one processor from at least one non-transitory computer-readable memory device, a map and a hierarchy of places included in the map. The method may also include accessing, by the at least one processor from the at least one non-transitory computer-readable memory device, quantitative information associated with places in the hierarchy. The method may also include receiving a scaling input from a user. The method may also include determining, by the at least one processor, a level in the hierarchy at which to aggregate the quantitative information, based on the scaling input. The method may also include aggregating, by the at least one processor, the quantitative information for a plurality of the places at the determined level, the aggregating including independently aggregating the quantitative information associated with places below at least two of the plurality of places at the determined level.

  • Patent number: 8775955
    Abstract: A plurality of digital resources are identified in a set of digital resources. An indication of a user selection of at least one criteria is received, the user selection received through a user interface. A degree of correlation is determined between each digital resource in the plurality and each of the criteria. Data is sent that is configured for use in presenting, in a window of the user interface, a plurality of graphical resource objects and at least one graphical attractor object, each graphical resource object representing a digital resource in the plurality of digital resources and each graphical attractor object representing one of the criteria. Each resource object is presented a distance from each attractor object, the distance based at least in part on the corresponding degree of correlation between the digital resource represented by the resource object and the criteria represented by the attractor object.
