Abstract

Many of today's decentralized computer networks have been formed through ad hoc additions to existing local, metropolitan, and wide-area networks. While distributed information network systems are relatively new, physical material distribution systems have a rich history. Distributed information systems have many concepts in common with logistics systems. The authors demonstrate how the manipulation of data in a distributed environment is similar to material distribution systems.
