Digital operator tools (Traffic light)
Machine operators in digital print are typically not extensively trained in spectral color analysis and color management but still you want your quality maintained to the highest standards.
To help the digital press operator, we designed a special landing view in the ProcessControl module that simply shows a traffic light that visualizes the overall quality of the print.
As long as the light is Green, all is OK and you can continue production. A Yellow light indicates small issues which probably are solved by running a standard machine calibration routine, a Red light indicates strong visual color issues for which you need your quality manager to investigate before continuing production.
This is again a perfect example of how we adapt to the user: take away the rocket science for people who don’t need it while making sure the information and analysis tools are available for color specialists at the same time.
