  1. The MIS submits a job request (SubmitQueueEntry) that contains stripping parameters or a complete JDF layout.
  2. Business Link extracts and copies the information to the Prinergy job's \System\ImpositionPlans\Link subfolder, organized into one JDF stripping file per imposition or job part, as defined by the MIS.
  3. Business Link instructs the Prinergy ImportAll process template to pick up the files.
  4. The ImportAll process template takes one of the following actions:
    • Imports and queues any stripping data for the Preps engine
    • Imports any full JDF layouts directly into the Prinergy job
      Note: If automated imposition is disabled, the Prinergy Workshop operator must manually import the raw JDF stripping files or layouts from the job's \System\ImpositionPlans\Link folder. For instructions, see the Prinergy Workshop user documentation.
  5. If stripping data is queued for Preps:
    • The ImportAll process template applies its designated Preps profile to resolve the signatures and generate the imposition.
    • If Preps mark rules are defined, marks are automatically added. For details, see

      the Creating a mark rule and the Mark rules for JDF automation and AutoGang topics in the Preps help system (

      the Automation Support Topic in the Preps User Guide



    • Based on the profile, Preps generates JDF output for the imposition, which by default uses the Press Sheet Size device. The device setting in the Import All process template is not used. The device is derived from the JDF.
  6. Prinergy imports the completed imposition into the Prinergy job and sends the JDF Layout data to Business Link.
    Note: If automated imposition is disabled, the operator must manually import the imposition.
  7. Business Link updates the MIS job's master JDF document and forwards the JDF Layout data to the MIS.
