  • Publication number: 20180018430
    Abstract: A portable data-management system may be easily employed with multiple processing devices by eliminating the need to pre-install additional programs, agents, device drivers, or other software components on the hosts. A portable storage device contains software for a data-management application, which receives and processes test data from a meter that measures an analyte. The portable device may employ an interface protocol that makes the portable device immediately compatible with different operating systems and hardware configurations. Once the portable device is connected to the host, the data-management application can be automatically launched. The convenience and portability of a data-management system may be enhanced by integrating advanced data processing and display features with the portable device. The users may access some advanced presentations of health data without having to launch the data-management application on a separate host.

  • Publication number: 20180012160
    Abstract: Various embodiments of systems and methods for optimizing vehicle utilization are described herein. The method includes determining demand, supply, and availability of vehicles. A graph with nodes (representing source and destination stations of orders) and arcs connecting nodes is generated based on validity conditions, e.g., there is network connectivity from source to destination node, etc. The arc is assigned for repositioning, waiting, and loaded move based upon input such as tolerable delay for orders, waiting cost at stations, repositioning cost, long stand cost, revenue generated from orders, order priority, etc. A network flow solver is successively executed to solve the graph to maximize profit, optimized utilization of vehicles, fulfill order on time, and balance demand and supply. Output tables including key performance indicators (KPIs) and information of fulfilled and unfulfilled orders are generated.

  • Publication number: 20170344942
    Abstract: An input corresponding to a time window is received in an integrated container management system. For containers of a specific container type, a network flow solver implementing a multi-commodity network flow problem is executed based on the input. A graph is generated with nodes representing depot locations, mode of transport locations and customer locations. Arcs connecting nodes, and representing operations and costs associated with the nodes are generated. Pick-up arcs are generated between the depot locations and customer locations. Return arcs are generated between the customer locations and the depot locations. Street turn arcs are generated among customer locations. Unload load arcs are generated between the mode of transport locations and the depot locations. Output tables are generated with values representing functionalities associated with container repositioning, container pick-up and return, and container street turn.

  • Publication number: 20170344944
    Abstract: In optimized container management system, a booking request with customer locations, booking time, container type, movement mode, depot locations and depot locations stock information are received as input in a solver in a container management system received in a container management system. Based on the movement mode of booking request received by customer, solver algorithm is invoked to build a bipartite graph. A bipartite graph with nodes representing customer locations and depot locations are generated, based on the movement mode. Edges between the customer locations and the depot locations are generated based on a container balancing criteria of a solver algorithm. For remaining booking request, edges between the customer locations and the depot locations are generated based on a cost minimization criteria of the solver algorithm. The depot locations are assigned to the corresponding customer locations based on satisfying the container balancing criteria and the cost minimization criteria.

  • Patent number: 9662048
    Abstract: A blood glucose meter having a test strip port and an adjustable lancet device disposed at the same end of the device body is disclosed. The device body further includes an enclosure at the proximal end of the device body which houses a test strip storage vial and which facilitates one-handed opening and closing of the vial to simplify access to test strips contained therein. The enclosure is further provided with a window which allows the reading of the lot numbers on the label of the test strip vial therein without necessitating removal of the vial. A data connector is also provided on the device body for communication access, such as to upload data from other devices or to download data to other devices.
