Customers often put multiple sheets on the print bed of large format flat bed printers which are printed in one print run (fast). Ink reporting is however for the print run so two sheets at once.

How to specify in JDF that two sheets are printed at once and have some shared properties.

For classic JDF, can we specify two Sheets within one Signature (like for easy JDF web printing)? Signature then means one print run and ink reporting could be at Signature level.

      Luckily, XJDF makes it much easier. Simply add multiple Part elements. Example using a NodeInfo tjat schedules 2 sheets - front first then the same two back:


      <ResourceSet Name="NodeInfo">
        <Resource>
          <Part SheetName="S1" Side="Front"/>
          <Part SheetName="S2" Side="Front"/>
          <NodeInfo Start="2018-12-16T17:00:00+00:00"/>
        </Resource>
        <Resource>
          <Part SheetName="S1" Side="Back"/>
          <Part SheetName="S2" Side="Back"/>
          <NodeInfo Start="2018-12-16T18:00:00+00:00"/>
        </Resource>
      </ResourceSet>

      In JDF, you could do something similar using Identical elements in the partitioned NodeInfo.

      <NodeInfo>
        <NodeInfo SheetName="S1">
          <NodeInfo Side="Front" Start="2018-12-16T17:00:00+00:00" />
          <NodeInfo Side="Back" Start="2018-12-16T18:00:00+00:00"/>
        </NodeInfo>
        <NodeInfo SheetName="S2">
          <NodeInfo Side="Front" >
            <Identical>
              <Part SheetName="S1" Side="Front"/>
            </Identical>
          </NodeInfo>
          <NodeInfo Side="Back" >
            <Identical>
              <Part SheetName="S1" Side="Back"/>
            </Identical>
          </NodeInfo>
        </NodeInfo>
      </NodeInfo>
      


      The same methods can be applied to resourceinfo, audits, etc.
