Development and runtime environment for the process of process flows involving documents
The Digital Process Factory (DPF) is a development and runtime environment for the drafting and flow control of processes involving the processing of information, data, files, and documents. Small processing building blocks, called working units, take on individual processing steps such as data acquisition, conversion, stamping, feedback, and restoring.
The working units are assembled for variable process flows. There is an interactive graphical tool for assembly which can also be mastered by users with little programming knowledge. Several scenarios, such as Office and CAD conversion o PDF/A, booklet creation, mail archiving, etc, have ready-made processes. These just have to be configured for the project’s specific requirements.
The DPF itself, the ready-made processes, and the working units are continuously developed further by SEAL Systems on a project-driven basis, thus forming a continually improved basis for all customers and new scenarios. However, expressed project specific adaptations may also be realized, and are part of our daily business. Digital Process Factory has been specially designed so that special adaptations accordingly remain separate from the SEAL standard delivery. Customer-specific solutions can also be updated.
The Digital Process Factory furthermore supports the integration of 3rd-party products. The existing processes already contain integrated third-party converters for CAD data, the generation of 3-D PDF, the attachment of digital signatures, document protection and other functionalities.
Customers can make adaptations themselves after purchasing a development license. SEAL offers training for this.
Integration into file-generating systems can be done over numerous interfaces such as web service, command line, or watch folder. There are powerful, ready-made integrations available for individual systems such as SAP, TeamCenter and SharePoint. The operation of Digital Process Factory can be monitored easily and transparently over a graphic interface. Modifications such as inserting, deleting, and moving individual process elements are made easy by intuitive operation, while the visualized process display helps users to think their way into the processes.
