  • Patent number: 10725718
    Abstract: A print server is disclosed. The print server includes a printing software product that generates an object including one or more attributes defining work expected to be received in a printing system, assigns the object to an input device associated with a folder designated to receive the work, monitors the received work and provides a notification if the received work does not match the attributes of the object.
    Type: Grant

    Date of Patent: July 28, 2020
    Assignee: Ricoh Company, Ltd.
    Inventors: Marquis G. Waller, Linda S. Liebelt, Thomas N. Bilan, Ioana C. Nagy
  • Patent number: 10447892
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for generating printed samples of a print job. The system receives a print job, and generates samples for the print job according to different sets of printing parameters. The system determines estimates of printing resource usage based on each set of printing parameters, and initiates printing of the samples along with the resource usage estimates. Further, the system receives user input selecting one of the samples, and initiates printing of the print job according to the printing parameters of the selected sample.

  • Patent number: 9069499
    Abstract: A method disclosed. The method includes downloading a first print job data stream from a cloud computing network, transmitting the first print job data stream to a printer, monitoring a printing status of the printer to determine when the printer is ready to receive a second print job and downloading a second print job data stream from the cloud computing network upon determining that the printer is ready to receive the second print job.

  • Patent number: 8468496
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus for improved ease and flexibility in defining attribute values for jobs in a workflow processing system. The job attributes are presented to a user grouped or organized by their relationship to various elements of the workflow model used to process the job type. Further, default values for job attributes may be flexibly defined based on elements of the workflow model that utilize the job attribute and/or based on dynamic computations of functions involving the various job attributes and other parameters.

  • Publication number: 20120314256
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus for flexible, configurable job workflow processing. Features and aspects hereof provide for generating workflow models from configurable templates. The workflow models may include one or more phases, each comprising one or more processes, each process comprising one or more steps. The Phases, processes, and steps may all be defined by configuring parameters of corresponding templates. Information defining the workflow models and all job information for jobs to be executed are entries in an integrated database such that creation and update of workflow model information and job information is performed as simple database queries and updates.

  • Publication number: 20120243027
    Abstract: A method disclosed. The method includes initiating the printing of a print job data at a printer, displaying a graphics indication within a graphical user interface (GUI) of a printing progress of the print job while the print job is printing, detecting that a spacing operation has been performed on the print job and updating the printing progress of the print job at the graphics indication based on the spacing operation that has been performed.

  • Patent number: 7216347
    Abstract: A system, apparatus and method for dictating the order that print jobs received over multiple data channels are printed. A priority value is assigned to each data channel that receives print jobs. The priority value of the data channel is imparted to each of the print jobs received via its respective data channel. The relative priorities of the print jobs is determined, and the print jobs are printed in an order corresponding to their relative priority values.
