Microsoft Industry Standard Tools
MAS 500 Manufacturing was developed using Microsoft
technology and development tools. Microsoft can not only be relied
upon to devote resources to the continual improvement and support
of these tools, but use of industry-standard tools means that users
can locate programming resources more easily and can achieve better
integration with other windows applications.
COM and OLE Automation
These Microsoft standards enable full
integration of multiple processes. COM (Component Object Model) allows
computing functions to be broken down into reusable segments of program
code defined as objects. This method of writing applications results
in shorter development cycles and increased reliability. OLE Automation
establishes a standard, shared interface between programs, providing
simple "plug and play" integration between program objects.
Microsoft SQL Server Relational Database
Microsoft SQL Server gives the user the
power of a relational database, conferring benefits such as security,
data integrity and high-performance. By using the Open Database Connectivity
(ODBC) standard, Microsoft SQL Server ensures that you can choose
from a wide variety of reporting and analysis tools to access your
