  • Patent number: 11487584
    Abstract: Apparatus and associated methods relate to constructing a resource and attribute tasking solution to complete a user's objective with resource and attribute characteristics defining the tasked objects, in response to receiving a task definition, and satisfying a task definition constraint. An object includes of a set of resource and attribute dimensions each of which have a set of possible values. A tasking solution is the union of all valid solution vectors in the dimension space. The solution identifies all valid values to present to a user or other agent to make further decisions on further constraining resource and attribute characteristics for a final materializable tasking. In an illustrative example, the objective may be mapping resource supply to task demand. The task demand may be, for example, delivering a database-as-a-service platform configured based on rules generated to satisfy task definition capacity constraints.

  • Patent number: 7953358
    Abstract: A fuser debris inhibiting system and apparatus using an impregnated cleaning web. This web is impregnated with materials of: succinic acid, DPTA, HEDTA, NTA, DMSA or their salts. The web can contact the fuser member directly or can contact external heat rolls which in turn contact the fuser roll. The delivery of these materials to the surface of the fuser member substantially inhibits the formation of contaminants thereon.

  • Publication number: 20080097896
    Abstract: An electronic auction system may include a bid validator connected between a network and a customer database. The example bid validator may receive bid information from a customer over the network. The example bid validator may use the bid information to detect whether the customer database includes a customer record for the customer. If no customer record is found in the customer database, the example bid validator may initiate creation of a new customer record and place it in the customer database.
