*** Siemens Assigned Patent for Test Driven Architecture Enabled Process for Open Collaboration in Global ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 20 -- Siemens, Iselin, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,381,170) developed by Alberto Avritzer, Mountainside, N.J., and Johannes P. Ros, Bridgewater, N.J., for a "test driven architecture enabled process for open collaboration in global." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method for developing a software project includes identifying business cases and goals for the software project, defining a common interface architecture through which components of the software project are to be integrated, identifying software project components to be integrated over the common interface, defining high level requirements of the project components, elaborating the component interfaces and defining detailed component requirements, implementing the project components, testing the project components individually, defining integration tests for testing integrated components, and executing the integration tests on a set of integrated components." The patent application was filed on Nov. 28, 2007 (11/946,127).

*** NEC Laboratories Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 20 -- NEC Laboratories America, Princeton, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,381,226) developed by Vineet Kahlon, Princeton, N.J., Chao Wang, Plainsboro, N.J., and Aarti Gupta, Princeton, N.J., for a "system and method for monotonic partial order reduction." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A system and method for analyzing concurrent programs that guarantees optimality in the number of thread inter-leavings to be explored. Optimality is ensured by globally constraining the inter-leavings of the local operations of its threads so that only quasi-monotonic sequences of threads operations are explored. For efficiency, a SAT/SMT solver is used to explore the quasi-monotonic computations of the given concurrent program. Constraints are added dynamically during exploration of the concurrent program via a SAT/SMT solver to ensure quasi-montonicity for model checking." The patent application was filed on Feb. 6, 2009 (12/367,140). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,381,226&OS=8,381,226&RS=8,381,226 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.
