Abstract

An accelerated method to assemble or build complex jobs destined for a Networked Production Publisher, authored or created on a client workstation or PC. would be beneficial. Currently there exists no consistent or practical method of entering feature rich offerings on the client side. Electronic check off forms listing features are being used now, defeating the convenience of automatic electronic submission, and rendering the pathway from the author to the final product (printed job) complex and error prone. Furthermore, the productivity gain of pushing documents and instructions through wires is compromised. The proposal described attempts to make the path shorter, open, more direct, and operable, reducing the potential failure rate, increasing productivity and customer satisfaction.

The Document Assembly Guide enables an author to select features on a workstation, note non selectable features and exceptions via type in, in a sequential fashion page by page, collapsing all identical pages into one or more entries, while listing all exceptions. This is a task, not feature oriented, way of building the job. Upon job submission to the print shop, the operator may view the Assembly Guide on the User Interface and program all specified exceptions via "Show Ticket" or "Open Job". In addition a hard copy selection of the Assembly Guide allows managing paper supply such as covers...
