Post Processor scenarios 1

     Sending one or more ProductionOrders to StreamServe for further processing. Each ProductionOrder can
     have 0-many Operational drawings in pdf format that needs to be printed together with the ProductionOrder.
Post Processor scenarios 2

     One or more ERP systems send xml-invoices for processing in streamserve. The xml-files are divided into
     smaller files for simpler handling and higher performance. Sending of AFP files to the printshop is done 3/week
Post Processor scenarios 3

     In this case there are two document types (AccountStatement / Daily) that we would like to send in the same
     envelope to the customer.
Post Processor scenarios 4

In this scenario the customer create PPQ for preview purpose before each batch is sent to the printshop. If ok a new PPQ
file is generated and all documents in Postprocessor Repository is selected.
DEMO

Short Demo all components that are included in a PostProcessor project. The sample project have the same
architecture as scenario 4.               Gather statistics
