  • Patent number: 11044319
    Abstract: An equipment analysis support apparatus includes an equipment constraint information storage unit that stores equipment constraint information which is a correspondence relationship between each process constituting work performed using a plurality of pieces of equipment and a constraint to be imposed on the equipment in each process; a work process information acquisition unit that acquires work process information which is information on a process of the work currently in progress; a configuration information generation unit that, when it is determined that a current work state is changed, specifies a constraint to be imposed on the equipment in the changed work state and generates a configuration of analysis processing of the equipment satisfying the specified constraint based on the acquired work process information and the equipment constraint information; and a processing execution unit that performs processing necessary for analysis of the equipment based on the generated configuration.

  • Publication number: 20040255051
    Abstract: A plurality of branches having a plurality of terminal units and a plurality of financing devices, and a computation center are provided. An AP server in the computation center includes a plurality of device-related components that give control instructions of financing devices, a plurality of upper access components for enabling the use of plural types of work systems, a plurality of work-related component described as work logics and a component flow management unit to call such components in sequence. By enabling the component flow control unit to call the components in sequence according to the call sequence of component flow definition information that is defined in advance, an application for branch work is realized on the side of the AP server.

  • Patent number: 4921325
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a connector for connecting optical fiber ribbons to each other, each of ribbons including a plurality of optical fibers spaced in line, and a method of attaching the same. The connector comprises an alignment member for placing the optical fibers in the grooves formed therein, a deformable metal member disposed on the optical fibers in the grooves of the alignment member, and a ferrule incorporated at the front end pportion with both the alignment member and the deformable metal member and adapted at the rear end portion to retain the unexposed portion of the optical fiber ribbon. Accordingly, the optical fibers are fixedly held between the alignment member and the deformable metal member while the ribbon is fixedly held by the rear end portion of the ferrule. The front ends of the optical fibers are cut at the front end of the ferrule.
