Calling all Cars... We need your input

As in past GUA conferences, the Board along with Kodak has set aside time and rooms with computers to have onsite training. The RBA training has been an overwhelming success.

We want to expand this to more topics and more people... and call it GUAU

Some ideas:

Colorflow
Job info sheets in InSite
Prinergy for System Admin'sThese are just a few of the many you will come up with... Use this thread to hit me with your ideas we as we build this learning portion of the conference.

What do you think?

I love the idea, and would like to see maybe RBA training broken into different sections as to focus on certain style rules and such.

Sign me up for ColorFlow now tho ok? :)

Did you invent sliced bread too? Great Idea. I have always wanted to do Info Sheets but never could find enough information to do it.

I'd add APA to the list and possibly getting the most out of the Acrobat plugins like Trapper, Merge and Compare, Plate Builder, DotShop. I use them all, but I know I'm not using them to the fullest.

Yes, APA would be a great subject!!! We use it in simple form, but I'm sure there are more creative ways to get more from it!!

APA, maybe smart hot folders? Could we have a non-RBA automation class? Great ideas, keep em coming.

So far, the automation I've used has been a combination of things - hotfolders, APA, RBA. This way I have some flexibility when files are supplied in different manors. If I get native files, I can start with adding Input file manually when I create it. Or, if print-ready pdf is supplied, I can, or CSR can drop it into a hotfolder and start the process there. Then, depending on whether this is repetitive work or not, some jobs are set up to go right to proof, while others are holding for further actions - QC, Customer OK, etc. Basically, it's an automation linkage that can be continuous from beginning to end, or, started or held at any point.

Certainly would love to learn more about ways to vary or extend the links.

What do you mean by Prinergy for system admins? This sounds like prinergy class for people who are already Windows Admins. Shouldn't there be a Windows admin class for prinergy users that want to admin the system?

I was thinking about some sort of workshop on how to set up tertiary servers. How often to reboot, memory to JTP allotment. Some harder core things then maybe even the better Apps people know. There has to be things that windows types can learn about the finer points of prinergy systems and how to keep it running as smooth as possible.

well, from what i have read here, lots of people struggle with system stability. also i suspect many people would benefit from a security overview / perspective, afp vs. smb discussions, tools for handling mac vs. pc files (i.e. robocopy), etc.

I love the idea! On the Colorflow topic - how about how to match color from conventional press to NexPress? Or how to streamline workflow to digital press and conventional press using Printegy?
