Electronic Product Code (EPC): A Key to RFID
The real benefits of radio frequency identification will be achieved, when the integration of the EPC data will be a substantial part for the control of supply

electronic product code  In simple terms, the electronic product code (EPC) is a unique number that identifies a specific item in the supply chain by linking serial numbers to the product information stored in a central database, and which is stored on a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag. Once it is retrieved from the tag, it can be associated with dynamic data such as where an item originated or the date of its production. Users of EPC codes will have to purchase the numbers from EPCglobal ( www.epcglobalinc.org ), the

Solomon Stands the Test of Time Despite Changing Masters Part Three: Product Differentiators


Of all the MBS' products, Solomon is apparently the purest in terms of a standard Microsoft technology stack, and without any proprietary additions. Furthermore, its sharp focus solely on Microsoft technology from ground up, coined in ''the power of one'' motto (one OS platform - Windows XP/NT/2000, one database platform - MS SQL Server, one development environment - MS Visual Basic, etc.), also presents an attractive, risk-adverse option for penny-pinching mid-market customers. Solomon IV has consequently been very competitive in speed of implementation, feasibility of customization, total cost of ownership (TCO), and price/performance ratio.

PHP Code Design


Interactive web sites are event-driven. With each user click, a menu selection or keyboard action initiates a thread of execution that runs many lines of code. Many Web projects start as small code snippets gathered from open source sites, but as the web site grows, new developers are added to the mix. Without design and documentation tools, the project can become unmanageable, unreliable, insecure, and costly to expand.
