  • 60000 users in current system
  • Each printing facility consists of:
    • Terminal model Digital VT420

existing printing solution
Existing Printing Solution
  • Limitations of the existing solution:
    • Very strict user and operating system environment
    • Very strict hardware pool
    • Modification of the standard hardware necessary
    • Expansive and inefficient maintenance

Diploma Thesis Ing. Martin Vogler

guideline for new equipment
Guideline for New Equipment
  • Using of existing network and user administration infrastructure
  • Using of existing hardware is preferable
  • Standalone PC should serve as the new printing interface

Diploma Thesis Ing. Martin Vogler

new printing solution
New Printing Solution
  • Based on software
  • No modification of the printer model necessary
  • Current operating system: Windows XP
  • Migration to other operating systems easily possible
  • Program development with C#

Diploma Thesis Ing. Martin Vogler

programflow 1
Programflow 1
  • Start of printing
  • Click on desktop icon
    • Read needed parameters from INI - file
    • Build connection „printserver to printclient“
    • Query all user files in spool directory
    • Printing a form on the desktop

programflow 2
Programflow 2
  • Selection of printfile by user
    • Read printfile and calculate number of pages in file
    • Build connection „printclientPC to printer“
    • Get number of total printed pages from printer
    • Send printfilestream to printer
    • Get number of printed pages
    • Generate signal for CopyBox
    • At the end of printing close all connections

Programflow 3
  • Error management
    • Error recovery sequence closes all connection
    • Close program in a defined procedure
    • Error message on desktop

Diploma Thesis Ing. Martin Vogler

improvements of the new solution
Improvements of the new solution
  • Wide pool of printers
  • Reduces significantly the costs for a new printing facility
  • Reduces significantly the overall effort for maintenance
  • No a priori preferences for a specific printer model
