stove pipe
 v.— «Each of these systems is supplied by different manufacturers with particular and typically focused disciplines. The various systems get “stove piped” and opportunities resolved within their discipline and sphere of control only. These systems were typically conceived within the vacuum of their own particular discipline and tend not to easily interface with each other.» —“Technology upgrades that are essential for outstanding customer service” by Linda Taft Telemarketing Feb. 1, 1994.
