1786 Ex Parte Ueno et al 13202829 - (D) NAGUMO 103 GREENBLUM & BERNSTEIN, P.L.C. THOMPSON, CAMIE S

In order for optimization of a result-effective variable to have been obvious, the prior art must have recognized that the variable in question was result-effective. In Application of Antonie, 559 F.2d 618, 620 (CCPA 1977), the predecessor to our reviewing court explained that "[t]his case, in which the parameter optimized was not recognized to be a result-effective variable, is another exception [to the rule that discovery of an optimum value of a variable in a known process is normally obvious].") The court also explained that "while it may ordinarily be the case that the determination of optimum values for parameters of a prior art process would be at least prima facie obvious, that conclusion depends upon what the prior art discloses with respect to those parameters." Application of Sebek, 465 F.2d 904, 907 (CCPA 1972)
