A Guide to Automation in the Graphic Communications Industry
by Thomas Hoffman-Walbeck and Sebastian Riegel
translated from the original German edition by John Joseph Dobrowits
Job Definition Format (JDF) and Job Messaging Format (JMF), based on the XML standard, provide one of the most important recent innovations for the automation of print production. JDF Workflow: A Guide to Automation in the Graphic Communications Industry, demonstrates that it is more than just a data format by providing a comprehensive examination of the format as well as the workflow that can be built with the help of JDF.
- General characteristics and expectations of a JDF workflow
- Three print production scenarios
- Analysis of the process-resource (producer-consumer) model
- An introduction to XML
- Important JDF structures
- Job Messaging Format
- Workflows and their JDF equivalents
With the help of many examples from order management systems, prepress, printing, and finishing, typical graphic communications production processes and their implementation in the JDF model are presented. Some special concerns for package printing are also discussed.
The book is ideal for apprentices in the graphic communications industry, students of printing and media technology, practitioners in print companies or manufacturers, as well as computer scientists.
Thomas Hoffmann-Walbeck is a mathematician, software developer, and project manager and professor at Stuttgart Media University. Sebastian Riegel is and engineering graduate and research assistant in the Printing and Media Technology degree program at Stuttgart Media University. John Joseph Dobrowits manages customer systems integrations projects for a digital printing company in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
