  • Publication number: 20190121843
    Abstract: A document management apparatus includes a display, a specifying operation receiving part, and a notification controller. The display displays a document structure in which an edition element of a document to be edited is identifiable. The edition element is a portion of the document that serves as an element of editing work. The specifying operation receiving part receives an operation of specifying the edition element based on the document structure displayed on the display. The notification controller provides a notification to a notification destination associated with the edition element specified through the operation received by the specifying operation receiving part.

  • Publication number: 20180031045
    Abstract: A vibration absorber is provided which is mounted in an annular space housing a spring of a damper, wherein accompanying rotational fluctuation of a drive source, when a first plate connected to the drive source and a second plate connected to a transmission rotate relative to each other while elastically deforming a spring, an arm part extending radially outward from a driven plate swings in the interior of an annular space, and grease packed in the annular space is compressed by the arm part and pushed inward in the radial direction, but since this grease is guided in the peripheral direction by a flow-aligning projection provided on either one of the driven plate and the seal plate and projecting toward the other, and is prevented from being concentrated in part of a seal member provided on the inner peripheral part of the seal plate and sealing the annular space.

  • Publication number: 20150309975
    Abstract: A non-transitory computer readable medium stores a program causing a computer to execute a process for document-difference generation. The process includes estimating a range to be edited in target structured document information in response to a comment added to the target structured document information, based on a relationship between an element including a commented portion associated with the comment and another element of the target structured document information; and generating change-indicating information in which a difference within the estimated range between the target structured document information and structured document information obtained by editing the target structured document information is associated with the comment.

  • Patent number: 7513176
    Abstract: A flywheel device for a prime mover, which enables stable transmission of torque from a prime mover to a driven shaft, and can be formed compact in size. A first flywheel is provided on the crankshaft of an internal combustion engine. A second flywheel has a friction surface, and is connected to the input shaft of a transmission via a friction switch for urging the friction surface. A spring mechanism is connected between the two flywheels, for damping torsional vibrations of the crankshaft. The first and second flywheels has a groove that is formed in one of them, and extends circumferentially at a radial location corresponding to the friction surface, a flange that is formed in the other of them, and is fitted in the groove, and a brush bearing provided in the groove for rotatably supporting the flywheels.

  • Patent number: 7159171
    Abstract: A structured document inputted from a document input unit is decomposed into partial structures to be an editing unit in a document processing unit, and global structural information showing a relation between the partial structures is registered into a relational database. The decomposed partial structure is inputted to an editing unit processing unit, and information of elements as element information and a relation between elements in the partial structure as structural information are registered into the relational database. An ancestor-descendant relation between two elements can be determined easily and speedily by determining an ancestor-descendant relation between the partial structures of the global structural information and an ancestor-descendant relation of the structural information of the ancestor partial structure.

  • Patent number: 7069502
    Abstract: A structured document management system for managing a structured document is disclosed, the system including: an element registration unit for registering attribute information and content information about each of elements in the structured document as element information; a structural information registration unit for registering relations between the elements in the structured document as binary format structural information; and an information retaining unit for retaining the element information registered by the element registration unit as records of a relational database while preserving the binary format structural information registered by the structural information registration unit.

  • Patent number: 6913129
    Abstract: A sensor mounting mechanism for a clutch case is provided, which can not only prevent temperature rise of a sensor but also simplify mounting of the sensor on the clutch case. The sensor mounting mechanism is for a clutch case which houses a clutch and a detection object (a pulse gear) rotating with the clutch in unison. A sensor for detecting a rotation of the detection object is inserted through a hole made on the clutch case with a thermal insulator (spacer) and a detector of the sensor is oriented opposite to the detection object.
