         What to Do With it All
►   Parsing & Validation
►   Off-the-shelf XML Schema vs. JDF
     Adobe
     CIP4
     Object Advantage
►   Networking
     File
     MIME Encoding
                            JMF Levels
►   JMF Level 0 / No messaging
►   JMF Level 1 / Notification – Unidirectional notification to
    controller

►   JMF Level 2 / Query support – Devices respond to
    requests from other devices by communicating status
    information/bi-directional communication capabilities.

►   JMF Level 3 / Command support. – Devices that have
    the ability to process commands.

►   JMF Level 4 / Submission support. – Devices
    controllers that may accept JDF jobs via HTTP and must support
    MIME multipart documents.
        Picking Your Objectives
►   Eliminate data waste and re-keying
►   Create JDF benchmark data for
    testing and evaluation
►   Improve business information flow
    and process?
►   Integrate front-office with production?
►   Target customers or markets?
►   Improved job throughput?
    Consider the JDF “MIS” system
►   Decompose JDF document instances and store
    information into a database or data store
►   Compose JDF from its database or data store
►   Read and validate JDF
►   Write and validate JDF
►   Be aware of input and parameter requirements of
    production devices on the plant floor
►   Understand, read and write validated JMF
                        Integration
►   Accept and manage extensions to JDF
►   Allowing users to create JDF extensions
►   Providing JDF workflow options – such as facilitating
    pipeline creation
►   Providing conversion tools and middleware for
    dealing with non-JDF software and systems
►   Traditional production and MIS functions –
    Estimating, CRM, Scheduling, Inventory, management
    reporting, & links to accounting
Implementation Strategies
         Issues to Watch Out For …

►   Parsers … be consistent
►   Validation vs. sensible jobs
►   JDF Extension … get the documentation
►   User customization: System vs. Schema
►   Avoid “one-way” MIS systems
          Where Should Users Start?
►   Make someone responsible
►   Pick a path (Customer or market where
    the impact will be greatest)
►   Document your current environment
►   Be prepared to test!
►   Pick a JMF level
►   ROI, ROI, and ROI!
            Thank you!
