Flexographic printing preflight application designed to work with Cyber Graphic's existing workflow and increase efficiency via automation.
During my time at Cyber Graphics as a prepress intern one of my daily responsibilies was completing preflight jobs. These consisted of design files sent in from outside vendors that had to be stored and backed up properly on the company server as well as checked for potential issues before moving to the platemaking department.
While these jobs were fairly small considered to other tasks the volume alone could keep a prepress artist busy for a few hours at a time. For my final few weeks at the company I decided to focus on CyberFlight as my internship project to speed up and assist with automating preflight jobs.
Working within the prepress department allowed me to test and gather user feedback from coworkers directly. Their input allowed for quick iterations and changes through all steps from concept to development. Front-end was built utilizing the Metro UI framework.
Video showcasing the preflight process and how files and job information can be automatically read-in and populated. CyberFlight was implimented into the prepress department workflow and reduced labor spent on preflight jobs by ~50%.
A press sheet calculator was also included within the application. Typically these calculations were done by hand on a calculator for each job.
