  • Publication number: 20200208529
    Abstract: After a free-form surface is machined on an elongated material 1 with a projection 3 and a blade root 4 held, the holding of the projection 3 is released to release strain generated during machining. Upon release of the holding, the entire elongated material 1 deforms, and the projection 3 moves from a holding position A to a strain-released position B. A re-holding position C obtained by correcting the position B by the deformation amount of the elongated material 1 due to the weight of the elongated material 1 is determined, and the projection 3 is held again at the re-holding position C for further machining the free-form surface on the elongated material 1.

  • Patent number: 10687385
    Abstract: In a communication system in which a plurality of bearers are set up between UE and one or more PGWs, a PGW measures an idle time for each bearer and determines whether or not the measured idle time has reached an idle timer threshold value which is determined in advance for each of the plurality of bearers (Step 1). Then, when it is determined that the idle time for one bearer, for example, bearer 2, has reached the idle timer threshold value (Step 2), a PGW2 requests an MME to release bearer 2 via an SGW2 (Steps 3 and 4), and the MME performs a process of releasing bearer 2 in response to the request (Step 5 and the like).

  • Publication number: 20200187182
    Abstract: In a service mapping apparatus, an allocation service table, which associates a service to which a slice is allocated in advance, the slice, and an address representing an apparatus executing the service with each other, is stored. In addition, a request accepting unit of the service mapping apparatus receives an SLA-SL that is a requirement of a function. A determination unit determines a slice including an SLA-SL corresponding to the received service requirement (SLA-SL) of the service (satisfying the service requirement). In a case in which a service that is the allocation target is associated with a slice in advance, an allocation unit changes allocation of the service to the determined slice.
