An enhanced claims processing server may analyze damage associated with the insured item using photos/video transmitted to the server from a user device (e.g., a mobile device). The mobile device may receive feedback from the server regarding the acceptability of submitted photos/video, and if the server determines that any of the submitted photos/video is unacceptable, the mobile device may capture additional photos/video until all of the data are deemed acceptable. To aid in damage analysis, the server may also interface with various internal and external databases storing reference images of undamaged items and cost estimate information for repairing previously analyzed damages to similar items. Further still, the server may generate a payment for compensating a claimant for repair of the insured item.

  • Patent number: 11386373
    Abstract: Provided is a work management device for arranging a worker in consideration of a change of work efficiency. In a work management device 10, an index acquisition unit 11 acquires, for each work section, a work evaluation index calculated based on work history performed by a worker. A duration time acquisition unit 12 acquires a duration time for which a work status of the worker is the work evaluation index. A cost acquisition unit 13 acquires a cost incurred when the worker moves between the work sections. A determination unit 14 acquires an estimated work amount performed by the worker until the duration time is elapsed. The determination unit 14 determines, based on the estimated work amount and cost, arrangement of the workers in the plurality of work sections in such a way as to increase work efficiency in a whole of a work range.

  • Patent number: 11361359
    Abstract: Computer-implemented methods, computing systems and computer program products for centralized product specification management. A specification management application reads or receives an electronic specification family record stored in a data store. The specification family record includes a data structure of connected product specifications defining product attributes applicable to multiple products. The application also reads or receives a separate or independent product specification that defines product attributes that are not in the electronic specification family record. Electronic bills of material (BOMs) are generated for a user of the specification management application by the application aggregating product specifications of the electronic specification family record and at least one electronic independent product specification such that the electronic BOM includes respective product attributes defined by respective connected and unconnected product specifications.

  • Patent number: 11356801
    Abstract: A method and a device for performing targeted calibration are described. In an example, a first set of spatial data acquired within a predefined region in an indoor space is received. The indoor space is represented as a grid of tessellated polygonal tiles arranged in a hierarchical structure of size-wise arranged polygonal tiles. a preliminary discretized spatial map of the calibrated spatial data in the predefined region is generated by linking the first set of spatial data and the corresponding polygonal tiles for which the spatial data has been acquired. From the preliminary discretized spatial map, a group of polygonal tiles are identified which have density of calibrated spatial data less than a threshold density. For the identified polygonal tiles, a second set of spatial data may be acquired. Based on the preliminary discretized spatial map and the second set of spatial data, a fingerprint map is generated for the indoor space.
