  • Patent number: 9075845
    Abstract: A system includes a memory operable to store instructions and a processor communicatively coupled to the memory and operable, upon executing the instructions, to determine that first probe information is associated with first device information based on the first probe information, determine that second probe information is associated with the first device information and second device information based on the second probe information, and determine that third probe information is associated with second device information based on the third probe information. The processor may be further operable, upon executing the instructions to modify the first device information to include particular information from the first probe information and particular information from the second probe information, and modify the second device information to include particular information from the second probe information and particular information from the third probe information.

  • Patent number: 9075844
    Abstract: A system includes a memory operable to store instructions and a processor communicatively coupled to the memory and operable, upon executing the instructions, to receive first probe information from a first probe installed on a first device, compare the first probe information to first device information in a database, and determine that the first probe is associated with the first device. The processor may be further operable, upon executing the instructions, to receive second probe information from a second probe installed on the first device, compare the second probe information to the first device information in the database, and determine that the second probe is associated with the first device. The processor may be further operable, upon executing the instructions, to generate a relationship between the first probe information and the first device information and generate a relationship between the first probe information and the first device information.

  • Patent number: 6940393
    Abstract: A system and method of queuing orders locates data-entry modules relative to a pickup location such that a customer who places an order after a customer who placed an earlier order can be signaled to approach a pickup location before the first customer if the order of the second customer is ready before the order of the first customer. The system can signal a customer to wait in a predefined location until the order is ready, or the system can signal the customer to approach the pickup location.

  • Publication number: 20040158499
    Abstract: A system has a graphical use interface that allows a user to select desired items through either a data-entry-terminal located on-site at a restaurant or store or through a network, for example a network utilizing the Internet. The system may also allow an order to be customized and stored in memory for later recall.

  • Patent number: 6374293
    Abstract: A network management system includes a user interface, a virtual network and a device communication manager. The virtual network includes models which represent network entities and model relations which represent relations between network entities. Each model includes network data relating to a corresponding network entity and one or more inference handlers for processing the network data to provide user information. The system performs a fault isolation technique wherein the fault status of a network device is suppressed when it is determined that the device is not defective. User displays include hierarchical location views and topological views of the network configuration. Network devices are represented on the displays by multifunction icons which permit the user to select additional displays showing detailed information regarding different aspects of the corresponding network device.

  • Patent number: 6049828
    Abstract: A network management system includes a user interface, a virtual network and a device communication manager. The virtual network includes models which represent network entities and model relations which represent relations between network entities. Each model includes network data relating to a corresponding network entity and one or more inference handlers for processing the network data to provide user information. The system can poll or communicate with certain network entities and can infer the status of network connectors and other network entities for which polling is impossible or impractical. The system performs a fault isolation technique wherein the fault status of a network device is suppressed when it is determined that the device is not defective. User displays include hierarchical location views and topological views of the network configuration.

  • Patent number: 4932026
    Abstract: Apparatus for distributing the processing of data across a plurality of loci of control which are connected by a mail system. The apparatus includes a package which contains files of various types and a route specifying the order in which the package is to be circulated among the loci and the processing to be done at each locus. Each locus includes programs executable by users which can manipulate the contents of the package. The programs automatically take the type of file being manipulated into account. The manipulations include modifying the unexecuted portion of the route. Each locus further includes a process which executes the route as modified, a process which tracks the package and receives control commands, and a process which handles errors detected by the other components or by users. The tracking processes maintain data bases for locating the package.
