From the background information supplied by the inventors, news correspondents obtained the following quote: "The subject matter of this patent application relates to computer software architecture and, more particularly, to the architecture of application software for ad-hoc goods movement.
"Enterprise software systems are generally large and complex. Such systems can require many different components, distributed across many different hardware platforms, possibly in several different geographical locations. Thus, the architecture of a large software application, i.e., what its components are and how they fit together, is an important aspect of its design for a successful implementation."
Supplementing the background information on this patent, VerticalNews reporters also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "This specification presents a software architecture design for an ad-hoc goods movement software application.
"In its various aspects, the software architecture design can be implemented as methods, systems, and apparatuses, including computer program products, for implementing a software architecture design for a software application implementing ad-hoc goods movement. The application is structured as multiple process components interacting with each other through service operations, each implemented for a respective process component. The process components include an Accounting process component, an Inventory Processing process component, a Site Logistics Processing process component, and a Supply and Demand Matching process component.
"The subject matter described in this specification can be implemented to realize one or more of the following advantages. Effective use is made of process components as units of software reuse, to provide a design that can be implemented reliably in a cost effective way. Effective use is made of deployment units, each of which is deployable on a separate computer hardware platform independent of every other deployment unit, to provide a scalable design. Service interfaces of the process components define a pair-wise interaction between pairs of process components that are in different deployment units in a scalable way.
"Details of one or more implementations of the subject matter described in this specification are set forth in the accompanying drawings and in the description below. Further features, aspects, and advantages of the subject matter will become apparent from the description, the drawings, and the claims."
