  • Patent number: 10848066
    Abstract: Described is a controller for a DC/DC converter of a type having N power stages, where N is a natural number greater or equal to 2. The controller comprises a decision maker module, a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) or proportional-integral (PI) control module and a transient compression control module. The decision maker module determines a first steady state mode of operation and a second transient mode of operation and is configured to switch control between said first steady state mode of operation to said second transient mode of operation when an operating parameter of one of the N power stages exhibits a predetermined operating condition relative to a predetermined operating limit and/or a predetermined, calculated or selected threshold. The PID or PI module regulates the operating parameter during said first steady state mode of operation.

  • Patent number: 10372302
    Abstract: Alternative visual analytics for a particular business object are determined in response to user requests to change the dimensions of a previously generated visual analytic. By analyzing the request to change the dimensions, an alternative visual analytic pattern that includes suitably dimensioned visualizations is determined. The alternative visual analytic pattern includes a description of a particular visualization and defines how to generate a corresponding visual analytic. Based on the alternative visual analytic pattern, a modified report definition can be generated. The modified report definition, that includes analytical operations with dimensions corresponding to the request, can be executed on the business object to generate modified analytic data. A new modified visual analytic that comprises a visual representation of the modified analytic data is then generated based on the alternative visual analytic pattern.

  • Patent number: 9886678
    Abstract: Systems and methods for generating and distributing graphic representations of planograms used for the configuration, maintenance, and compliance confirmation in the display of merchandise and advertisements, are disclosed. Based on predefined merchandizing agreements, planograms are designed to define specific configurations of products and advertising collateral in specific locations. By referencing an identifier associated with a location, a corresponding planogram can be retrieved and used to generate a graphic representation of the planogram. The graphic representation of the planogram can be adjusted and superimposed onto a live or captured image of the location to indicate where objects should be placed or rearranged. Each object specified in the planogram can be visually represented as a picture superimposed in a position over an image or live view of the location captured by a client computing device by a user.

  • Publication number: 20170308840
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system for processing data. During operation, the system obtains a first set of rules for assigning a first set of sales professionals to a first set of accounts, wherein the first set of rules comprises a representative load rule, a matching rule, and a balancing rule. Next, the system applies an optimization technique to the first set of rules and a first set of parameters associated with the first set of sales professionals and the first set of accounts to produce a first set of assignments of the first set of sales professionals to the first set of accounts. The system then outputs the first set of assignments for using in managing sales activity of the first set of sales professionals.
