Work type information is included in built-in reports, and, if an MIS connector is used, it is sent to the MIS. Work types capture the reasons for work done in Prinergy. For example, work types can help you determine whether to charge for certain types of work.

Prinergy users can select from a work type list for each process that they run. The standard work type categories that are available as system-defined defaults are:

  • Regular or original work: Describes a process that is applied to the job as specified in the original work item
  • Alteration chargeable: Describes a process that is applied to the job but that was not specified in the original work item. Such processes are typically charged to the customer.
  • Alteration nonchargeable: Describes a process that is applied to the job but that was not specified in the original work item. Such processes are not typically charged to the customer.
  • Rework chargeable: Describes a process that was previously applied to the job but that was repeated, perhaps due to a customer change request. Such processes are typically charged to the customer.
  • Nonchargeable rework: Describes a process that was previously applied to the job but that had to be repeated, perhaps due to operator error. Such processes are not typically charged to the customer.

In addition to the default work type categories, you can configure new work-type categories and new types per category, which are then globally available to all Prinergy Workshop operators in the prepress system. Operators can also customize a work type for a specific job.

A subscription is also required in order for the WorkType and CostType info to be sent to the MIS. Here is an example of a subscription node in a SubmitQueuEntry:
