The method according to the invention is in particular characterized by the automatic or semiautomatic calculation of a decomposition of the structure into components as well as by at least one of the following steps: (i) the optionally sole visualization of one or more of these components, in particular in case of a superimposed representation of the structure for two or more points in time, and/or (ii) the representation of different components in different colours/shades/patterns, and/or (iii) the calculation of quantitative parameters describing the structure and/or its components, separately for the individual components, and/or (iv) the calculation of parameters measuring the interrelationship between specific components.09-13-2012
20120271587EQUIPMENT STATUS MONITORING METHOD, MONITORING SYSTEM, AND MONITORING PROGRAM - Anomaly sign detection methods such as those found in plants cannot detect anomalies when relevant sensor information is not acquired, and while it is possible to detect anomalies through changes in sensor output when manual operations are performed, it is difficult to distinguish between anomalies such as those caused only by the sensor signal and actual anomalies which should be detected. The disclosed method uses event signals, which contain a signal based on the status of a unit unable to acquire sensor information and a signal based on human operations. An event sequence is extracted from an event signal outputted from a piece of equipment and grouped by clustering, then a frequency matrix is created for the alarms generated within a prescribed interval of an event sequence, and a prediction of alarms with a high probability of occurring for an event sequence is output on the basis of the frequency matrix.10-25-2012
20120278028GENERATING MODEL BASED SPECTRA LIBRARY FOR POLISHING - A method of generating a library of reference spectra, includes receiving a first spectrum representing a reflectance of a first stack of layers on a substrate, the first stack including a first dielectric layer, receiving a second spectrum representing a reflectance of a second stack layer on the substrate, the second stack including the first dielectric layer and a second dielectric layer that is not in the first stack, receiving user input identifying a plurality of different contribution percentages for at least one of the first stack or the second stack on the substrate, and for each contribution percentage from the plurality of different contribution percentages, calculating a reference spectrum from the first spectrum, the second spectrum and the contribution percentage.11-01-2012
20120290247System and Method of Sensor Installation Validation - A glassbreak detector or motion detector includes circuitry responsive to an installation process. Data concerning the installation process can be automatically stored in non-volatile memory. The stored data can be retrieved as part of an after-installation review.11-15-2012
20110238361TALLYING SYSTEM, TALLYING APPARATUS AND TALLYING METHOD - The object is to provide a tallying system, a tallying apparatus and a tallying method which are capable of tallying characteristics of non-users who have not perform predetermined use among visitors in a predetermined place.09-29-2011
20100299097METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR TESTING, RECORDING, MONITORING, AND TRACKING THE CONTENTS OF SEALED REFUSE BALES - This invention is a method and system for recording, monitoring, and tracking the contents of refuse bales. All refuse bale information is locally and remotely accessible. This method prevents the circulation of hazardous waste and undesirable materials without effecting baling efficiency. Bale attributes are updateable allowing for long distance and highly informative tracking.11-25-2010
20120029862METHOD FOR DETERMINING AN EFFECT OF A PARTICLE BEAM ON A MATERIAL - A method for determining an action of a particle beam on a material at least partially irradiated or to be irradiated by the particle beam includes providing at least one particle beam parameter of the particle beam and at least one material property parameter of the material. A microscopic damage correlation is performed and the at least one particle beam parameter of the particle beam and that at least one material property parameter of the material are used so as to determine the action of the particle beam on the material.02-02-2012
