Welcome to the Heidelberg JDF Tutorial


Why ICS ?

Product B

InteroperabilityConformanceSpecifications


Interoperability Conformance Specifications

  • Define a set of Interoperability Conformance Specifications – ICS

    • The term “JDF Compliant” does not immediately imply that two arbitrary applications will communicate.

      • Sending RIP instructions to a Folding Machine is not useful…

    • Two applications that comply with a given ICS will communicate in a meaningful way.

    • Product Certification will be based on ICS Compliance

  • Avoid multiple, incompatible JDF Dialects


Spec Specifies

syntax of JDF

Cardinality of Parameters in a JDF ticket

Optional (?,*)

Required (“ “, +)

Number of elements (?,*,+,” “)

Job Ticket view only

ICS Specifies

Requirements for Applications

Read + Write requirements

May, Must Read (R?, R)

May, Must Write (W?, W)

Must be capable of writing (W)

Manager and Worker Role

Comparison of Spec and ICS


Read, Write Conformance

  • JDF Specification: Specifies only cardinality requirements within a JDF Ticket

  • ICS: Specifies conformance requirements for an Application:

    • W: Must Write. JDF is invalid unless feature is set.

    • W?: May Write. No conformance requirement

    • W: Conditional Must Write. There are Conditions where a JDF must contain a feature

    • !W: MUST NOT Write. JDF is invalid if feature is set.

    • R: Must Read. The information in the JDF must be read and appropriately processed

    • R?: May Read. No conformance requirement.

JDF Specification

ICS Document Structure


Base ICS

  • Conformance requirements that are common to all other ICS documents

  • includes the conformance requirements for

    • Hot Folders,

    • string Attribute Lengths,

    • specific generic JDF Elements

    • specific generic JMF Messages

      • Job Submission


MIS ICS

  • Interoperability requirements related to the communication between MIS and production equipment.

  • Generic requirements for all stages of the production process

    • pre-press

    • Press

    • post-press

  • Focus on the main JDF structure

    • JDF submission from an MIS to a Device

    • Device communication back to the MIS


MIS-Prepress

  • Defines the Interface between the MIS and Prepress focused on Conventional Printing.

  • Processes for a Prepress Workflow System that produces:

    • Proofs

    • Plates

    • Previews.


MIS-Sheetfed-Offset

  • This ICS defines the interoperability requirements for JDF Sheet-Fed Offset Printing


Prepress - Sheetfed offset

  • Describes the interface between a Prepress Workflow System and a Conventional Sheet Fed Printing Press Controller.

  • Defines how a Prepress Workflow System dynamically communicates with a Press Controller in order to deliver

    • previews used for evaluating ink zone settings

    • information about plates.


MIS-Binding

  • Defines the conformance requirements for:

    • Saddle Stitching

    • Soft-cover and

    • Hardcover Binding devices.

  • Specifies

    • JDF Instances,

    • JDF Messages

    • JDF Processes


MIS-Digital Print

  • Specifies the Conformance Requirements for Integrated Digital Printing Devices.

    • integrated digital printing systems with in-line finishing capabilities.

      • black and white and

      • limited color

    • Encompasses production printing IPP semantics.


CIP4 Interoperability Event Status

  • CIP4 hosted Interoperability first test event in May 2003

  • Regular 3-4 month interval

  • Next April 2005

  • Previous One was January in Heidelberg, Germany

    • Goals are:

      • Integration of products from various vendors

      • Pinpoint ambiguous areas in the specification

      • Deine and Test Drupa Interoperability

    • More than 60 Participants from >15 Companies

  • Next Event: Tomorrow, here in Pittsburgh

  • Events are closed door

    • Goal is to enhance the standard and enable interoperability

    • NOT to find scapegoats / heroes

JDF Content


JDF Conformance Interoperability Levels

  • None (Fax, Phone, Job Sheet)

  • JDF wrapper with many custom extensions

  • Customized JDF in Prototype Applications

  • 1-1 Customized JDF in hand-selected customer sites (beta or customer Project)

  • ICS-Based Standard JDF in hand-selected customer sites

  • Out of the box applications using ICS-based Standard JDF


JDF Transport Interoperability Levels

  • None (Fax, Phone, Job Sheet)

  • JDF File written to hard coded folder. (one way)

  • Two way JDF File exchange to hard coded folders (inbox, outbox)

  • JDF sent to File or HTTP URL as specified in the JDF

  • JDF + JMF Signaling from Device to Controller

  • JDF + Dynamic, bidirectional JMF exchange


JDF Content Interoperability Levels

  • None (Fax, Phone, Job Sheet)

  • Customer Name, Time, Date

  • 2. + rough description of workflow steps

  • 2. + Vendor-specific subsets of ICS including vendor-specific misinterpretations

  • Complete ICS Functionality

  • Complete description of the workflow
