  • Patent number: 10949752
    Abstract: The embodiments the systems and methods described herein attempt to optimally select a group or portfolio of control locations for each test location. The optimization can be generally performed in two steps. First, an objective function is defined that scores the similarity of a set of control locations averaged together. Second, given the large number of potential solutions, a computationally-feasible algorithm that identifies an optimal set of control locations and is based on the objective function is executed. In order to obtain the optimal set of control locations in an efficient manner for use in business analytics, the algorithm may use a hill-climbing algorithm. As a result, an optimization function can be incrementally improved in an efficient manner.

  • Patent number: 10935966
    Abstract: A product inspection device and method for correctly calculating consumer and producer risks irrespective of the type of distribution of products. A characteristic value representing a predetermined product characteristic is measured for each product as a product measurement value, and a standard deviation of measurement variations in measurement results is calculated as a measurement value standard deviation. The products are determined to be conforming based on whether the measured product measurement value falls within a range of a product standard. Consumer and producer risks are calculated based on the measurement variations. The calculated consumer and producer risks are respectively and successively added up and it is determined whether the number of products having undergone the adding have reached a predetermined number. If so, the added up consumer risk and producer risk are divided by the number of products to calculate a final consumer risk and a final producer risk.

  • Patent number: 10838803
    Abstract: Embodiments for preemptive deep diagnostics of resources in a disaggregated computing environment. A set of new resources of a first type is provided to an available resource pool within the disaggregated computing environment. An estimate for an expected time to failure (ETTF) for each one of the set of new resources is computed, and respective ones of the new resources from the available resource pool are provisioned to respective workloads based on the ETTF.

  • Patent number: 10831941
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a computer-based method for automatically selecting resources to include in a building plan layout is disclosed. The method involves obtaining a set of resource rules that define resources placeable within a building plan layout, obtaining a set of behavioral rules that define the behaviors of the resources, generating a model by evaluating the set of resource rules and the set of behavioral rules, obtaining a configuration, wherein a configuration comprises at least one of building demand, resource permutations, and other simulation attributes, generating at least one set of performance metrics by executing the model with the configuration, storing the at least one set of performance metrics, the model, and the configuration as an entry in a metrics database, selecting an entry from the metrics database, and outputting the entry to a building plan layout generator.

  • Patent number: 10832196
    Abstract: A dynamic supply chain planning system for analysis of historical lead time data that uses machine learning algorithms to forecast future lead times based on historical lead time data, and to divide historical lead time data into clusters based on seasonality and linearity. The machine learning results are further processed to adjust future planned lead times and to identify sources in the supply chain that contribute to large deviations between historical planned lead times and actual lead times.

  • Patent number: 10824799
    Abstract: Technologies are described herein for summary data autofill. A device executes an application program configured to receive data input. The application program may determine a portion of the data may be aggregated or conducive to being summarized. Upon the detection of a user input of additional data into a document having data contained therein, the application program may display a suggested complete summary of the data. An input may be received to accept the suggested complete summary, whereby the manner in which the suggested complete summary is displayed may be changed to indicate the acceptance of the suggested complete summary. A confidence level that the suggested complete summary is a correct summary of the data may be determined. The confidence level may be adjusted based on further input of data or additional data.

  • Patent number: 10756991
    Abstract: The technology disclosed offers a declarative and visualization framework that implements a state machine for multi-step progression of interaction with an entity. The declarative framework is usable over and over for a broad range of applications because it provides a simple rule-based authoring tool that can be used for specifying different elements and components of a complex state machine, including state definitions, state transition triggers, state transition conditions and state transition actions. Once defined, the state machine is automatically generated and visually implemented based on the declarative input provided by a non-technical user.
