Abstract

In an electronic reprographic system, the Job Ticket provides display of the programmed parameters for a job in the Job Programming mode of the operator dialog on the User Interface(UI). The Job Ticket shows parameters (variables) which can be programmed for a job and the current values for those parameters. Both job level parameters, such as the name of the job, and page level parameters, such as the color of paper stock that particular page in the job is to be printed on, are displayed. These parameters define the ways in which a job will be handled from its entry into the system, via electronic scanning, to its output, via electronic printing, and eventually deletion from the system.
