    Abstract: A management system constructs management information indicating that log chunks and issue chunks extracted from a first system managing log information and issue information output by a process related to a first team for a program to be developed are linked. The management system searches, from the management information, a log message group compatible with a designated log message group that is one or more log messages related to the issue by log pattern matching using the designated log message group in a case of receiving an inquiry with which the designated log message group is associated from the second system. The management system displays, on the second system, a response containing a handling method represented by handling method information corresponding to the found log message group.

  • Patent number: 10112127
    Abstract: A method and apparatus that deterioration of the flow state of a coal/kerosene slurry while preventing the damage caused by overloading to thereby achieve excellent solid-liquid separation performance. In a solid-liquid separation supplying a dehydrated coal/kerosene slurry to a decanter-type centrifugal separator to separate the coal/kerosene slurry into a solid fraction and a liquid fraction, an opening degree target value is determined on the basis of the difference between a target value and an actually measured value of a torque that acts on a screw conveyor of the decanter-type centrifugal separator, and the opening degree of a flow volume control valve, which is arranged in the middle of a supply line for supplying the coal/kerosene slurry into the decanter-type centrifugal separator, is adjusted to the opening degree target value.

  • Patent number: 10035967
    Abstract: A method for producing an ashless coal which includes a slurry preparation step, an extraction step, a separation step, an ashless coal acquirement step, and a by-product acquirement step. The separation step is conducted under the state of being pressurized to a pressure equal to or higher than a vapor pressure of the solvent. In the by-product acquirement step, the solvent is evaporated and separated from the solid content-concentrated slurry by spraying the solid content-concentrated slurry into a flash tank in which a pressure is set to lower than a saturation pressure of the solid content-concentrated slurry from a spray nozzle while maintaining a pressure of the solid content-concentrated slurry in a nozzle orifice of the spray nozzle at a level equal to or higher than the vapor pressure of the solvent.

  • Patent number: 9938477
    Abstract: A production apparatus of an ashless coal includes a preheater, an extraction tank, a feed pipe, a solid-liquid separator and a solvent separator. The preheater heats a solvent. The extraction tank extracts a coal component soluble in the solvent from a slurry including a mixture of a coal and the solvent heated by the preheater. The coal feeding unit feeds the coal to the feed pipe by pressuring a feed part to the feed pipe such that the solvent does not flow back. The solid-liquid separator separates a solution part containing the coal component from the slurry. The solvent separator evaporates and separates the solvent from the solution part to obtain an ashless coal.
