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.
