Imaging program, a recording program for recording on a recording medium, a control program for controlling the autoloader, and a printing program for printing on the label surface.

  Next, the system operation sequence of the CTP lower version data archiving system of the present invention will be described below with reference to FIG. 1, FIG. 2, FIG. 3, FIG.

<STEP201>
As shown in FIG. 2, the operator first refers to the item information existing on the file server 30 on the screen of the item information acquisition / display program on the archive client 10 shown in FIG. FIG. 7 is a screen for displaying a list of items on the file server 30. When a button B501 “Update” is pressed, an item list acquisition request is transmitted to the file server 30.

  In response to the request, the file server 30 returns a list of items on the server 30 to the archive client 10. The item information acquisition display program that has received the item list displays the list in the display area H501 shown in FIG. As a display item, in the order number (order number) column of the item, a check box for determining whether or not the item has been archived and the order number of the item are displayed, and the item name column, customer name column, A data type column, a delivery date column, an application-specific product name column, and a size column (data size: MB) are displayed.

  Further, not all items displayed on the file server 30 are displayed, for example, only items that have passed five days from the delivery date of the CTP lower version data are displayed. This ensures that the work on the item is complete and the data is not changed. The display can be changed depending on the initial setting.

<STEP 202>
Next, the item to be archived is selected from the item list. For example, as an item on the display area H501 shown in FIG. When the line 11111115 is clicked, it is shaded and selected.

<STEP 203>
Next, when the button B502 “Next” in FIG. 7 is pressed, the detailed information screen shown in FIG. 9 is newly displayed, and the detailed information display area H701 includes the selected item. Fold information is displayed. In this detailed information display area H701, a folder name on the file server 30, a part name, a folding size (MB), and a medium to be recorded are displayed.

<STEP 204>
By pressing a button B704 “Return” on the detailed information screen shown in FIG. 9, it is possible to return to the screen of FIG. 7 again. Further, in this step (STEP 203), it is possible to select a medium as a recording medium used in the archiving process. For example, the operator can select all DVD-ROM (button B701), all CD-ROM (button B702), It is possible to select from the left (button B703).

  On the detailed information screen shown in FIG. 9, any one of DVD-ROM (button B701), all CD-ROM (button B702), and entrustment (button B703) is arbitrarily selected and pressed. Thus, the following arithmetic control process is performed.

  For example, when left (button B703) is selected, the recording medium is automatically selected according to the size of the folding. As a limitation of selection, the smallest unit stored in one medium is a folding unit. For example, dividing one fold and storing it in a plurality of media is rejected (not permitted). Multiple folds included in one item are allowed to be divided into multiple media in units of folds.

  When the amount of data for one fold exceeds the storage capacity of the medium that is the recording medium, for example, 650 MB that is the storage capacity of the CD-ROM, the DVD-ROM is selected for that fold. Further, if the amount of data for one fold exceeds the storage capacity of the medium that is the recording medium, for example, 4.3 GB that is the storage capacity of the DVD-ROM, an error is output, and the item cannot be archived. Note that it is possible to set a state in which there is no error output function, assuming that the amount of data for one fold does not exceed the storage capacity of the recording medium.

  Here, based on FIGS. 11A to 11E, an example of automatic media distribution when the left (button B703) is selected is shown. For example, as shown in FIG. 11A, when it is assumed that there is a size (MB) S901 (fold data amount) of each fold (1 fold to 7 fold) displayed in the part name, first, the fold data is displayed. Corresponding to the size, each fold (1 to 7 folds) is sorted based on a sorting program.

  Next, as shown in FIGS. 11B to 11D, based on the calculation control program, the smallest fold (7 folds; 100) is added to the size of the largest fold (2 folds; 4000 MB). ) In order from the size amount of folds (6 folds; 200 MB), and the total of the size amounts is compared with the DVD-ROM storage capacity of 4.3 GB. The number of media is determined, and DVD-ROM media are automatically distributed.

  For example, as shown in FIG. 11B, the size S902 of 2 folds + 7 folds + 6 folds is 2 folds + 7 folds + 6 folds = 4300 MB (4.3 GB) ≦ 4.3 GB, as shown in FIG. 2 folds + 7 folds + 6 folds are distributed as the first DVD-ROM.

  Next, as shown in FIG. 11 (c), the second fold having the largest fold data size (1 fold; 3000MB) is selected, and the largest fold is sequentially started from the smallest fold (3 fold; 300MB) that has not yet been distributed. (4 folds; 500 MB) are added together, and the size S903 of 1 fold + 3 fold + 4 fold is 1 fold + 3 fold + 4 fold = 3800 MB (3.8 GB) <4.3 GB, as shown in FIG. 1 fold + 3 fold + 4 fold is assigned as the second DVD-ROM.

  Then, as shown in FIG. 11D, the last five remaining folds are allocated as the first CD-ROM because the size (S904) (data amount) is 650 MB or less.

  In addition, as an example of automatic media distribution when all DVD-ROMs (button B701) are selected, for example, the media are sequentially distributed from the first fold to the first DVD-ROM, and the total fold size (data amount) is calculated. When it becomes 4.3 GB or more, the next fold is distributed to the second DVD-ROM, and is distributed in the same manner thereafter.

When all CD-ROMs (button B702) are selected (each fold is 650MB)
As an example of automatic media distribution in a case where the number is within the range, for example, when the first CD-ROM is sequentially distributed from the first fold and the total exceeds 650 GB, the next fold is two It is distributed to the CD-ROM of the eyes, and then distributed in the same manner.

  Note that the example displayed in the detailed information display area H701 in FIG. 9 shows the result of automatic assignment after the left (button B703) is set for media selection.

  In this way, after the automatic distribution of the media related to the item to be archived selected by the operator is displayed in the detailed information display area H701 on the detailed information screen of FIG. 9, "Register" (button B705) is pressed. As a result, the process proceeds to the next STEP 205. On the other hand, by depressing “RETURN” (button B704), it is possible to return to the original STEP 202 and select the archive item again.

<STEP205>
By pressing “Register” (button B705) on the detailed information display screen shown in FIG. 9, the screen changes to the input instruction screen shown in FIG. On this screen, the operator is registered and the name of the warehouse that stores the archive media is specified and registered.

  For example, when the employee number of the operator is selected from the pull-down menu in the employee number field P801 on the input instruction screen shown in FIG. 10, the affiliation and name are automatically displayed. In addition, when a warehouse name is designated by pull-down in the warehouse name column P802, the identification numbers of the warehouse shelves and steps are automatically displayed.

<STEP206>
Next, when the archive registration process is selected for this item and metaphor distribution, the archive registration process “OK” button B 801 is pressed on the input instruction screen shown in FIG. In the case of proceeding and returning to the original, by depressing a “return” button B802, the process returns to STEP 203 and the detailed information display screen of FIG.

<STEP207>
In STEP 206, when the operator presses the archive registration process “OK” button B801, the archive registration request from the archive client 10 shown in FIG. 1 is transferred to the archive management apparatus 40, and the archive registration process is executed. The

  The archive management apparatus 40 (see FIG. 1) that has received the archive registration request performs the archive registration process in the order of the flowchart shown in FIG. 3 as follows.

<STEP211>
First, the archive management device 40 makes a media ID acquisition request for issuing a media ID.

<STEP212>
Next, the archive management device 40 refers to the media ID management table on the database 50 and acquires the latest media ID.

  The media ID is always unique and a sufficient number of digits is secured. 12A to 12B show a numbering system for media IDs (identification symbols). For example, as shown in FIG. 12 (a), it is composed of 7 digits, and as shown in FIG. 12 (b), the first digit is fixed by the symbol “A”, and after “B” for the future. Keep it pooled. The second digit is composed of “0-9” and “A-Z”, and the third and subsequent digits are composed of “0-9”.

  FIG. 13 shows a media ID acquisition flowchart. Based on this acquisition flowchart, the archive management device 40 refers to the media ID management table on the database 50 to acquire the latest media ID, and performs the next STEP 214. Proceed to

  However, for example, if the media ID cannot be acquired based on this acquisition flowchart due to a database failure or the like, and an error occurs, the process proceeds to STEP 213, and the error is returned to the archive client 10 (or operator). STEP 208 shown in FIG. Proceed to step S3 to notify that acquisition (registration) of the latest media ID has failed.

<STEP213>
Proceeding to STEP 208 shown in FIG. 2, the archive client 10 (or operator) is notified that acquisition (registration) of the latest media ID has failed, and the process returns to STEP 202 to select an archive item again.

<STEP214>
By acquiring the latest media ID, the archive device 60 with the smallest number of jobs is searched and selected. This is because jobs are evenly distributed to a plurality of archive devices 60 and the operating rate is improved.

<STEP215>
Next, archive information such as media information, item information, and folding information is registered in the archive information management table of the database 50.

<STEP216>
Next, the order file data is transferred to the archive device 60 to create an order file. The order file stores the location (path) of the actual data file server 30 and information for printing on the media label surface.

<STEP217>
Next, the archive information file data (text file data describing the archive information) is transferred to the archive device 60 to create an archive information file. By recording the information file at the same time as the actual data, even if the printing on the label surface becomes lighter as time passes, the information on the media can be obtained by referring to the information file.

<STEP218>
Next, a job monitoring request is issued, and the job monitoring program is started. The archive registration request is executed for each piece of media. In fact, since one item uses multiple media, the above procedure is executed for the number of media. The job monitoring program is activated in the archive management device 40 and monitors the status of the archive job.

  When the job monitoring program is started, the process proceeds to STEP 208 in FIG. 2 to check whether or not the archive registration process is completed.

<STEP208>
When it is confirmed that the archive registration process is completed, the archive device 60 can start the archive registration process with reference to the order file.

After obtaining the latest media ID in STEP 214, when searching and selecting the archive device 60 having the smallest number of jobs, the job status is periodically inquired of the archive device 60, and the result of the archive status is obtained. For example, it is displayed on a screen as shown in FIG.

  In FIG. 8, the archive status display area H601 always displays a job being archived (RUN state). In the display area H602, it is possible to select and display a state other than the RUN state by pull-down by a pull-down menu column P601 (pull-down menu; wait, complete, error).

  Examples of states other than RUN include the following. wait is a state in which the archive device 60 is in a queue (a state where processing is started) and is not yet subject to archiving processing, complete is a state in which archiving processing has been completed, and error has an error for some reason It is in the state.

  By selecting the pull-down menu column P601, the job in that state is displayed in the display area H602. The job in the error state can be archived again by pressing the button B601. For example, an error state such as a recording failure is solved by performing the archive processing again.

  A display area H603 indicates the state of the autoloader of the archive device 60, and the operator can determine whether the archiver 60 is operating or stopped.

  In the present invention, when it is confirmed in the above STEP 208 shown in FIG. 2 that the archive registration process is completed, the archive device 60 starts the archive registration process with reference to the order file. According to the flowchart shown in FIGS. 4 to 5, the archive data to be subjected to the archive registration process is acquired from the file server 30 in the order shown below, and the archive registration process is executed.

<STEP301>
First, as shown in FIG. 4, when a series of processing loops of the archive registration process is started, the archive device 60 receives order information such as items ordered (designated) from the operator (archive client) to the device 60. And whether an order file (ordered archive information file, archive data) of the item ordered by the device 60 is created in the monitoring folder (the monitoring folder used by the archive processing based on the job monitoring program). Monitor whether or not.

<STEP302>
Whether or not the order file (archive data) of the archive information to be registered for the ordered (designated) item is created (recorded) in the monitoring folder of the archive device 60 at this point in time. If the order file exists in the monitoring folder, the confirmation answer is transferred to STEP 304. On the other hand, if the order file does not exist in the monitoring folder, the confirmation answer is transferred to STEP 303. To do.

<STEP303>
When the order file is not present in the monitoring folder of the archive device 60, the state of the monitoring loop is maintained, and it is constant until the order file of the archive information of the ordered item is created (recorded) in the monitoring folder. When the order file is created (recorded and accommodated) in the monitoring folder, the process exits the monitoring loop and moves to STEP 304.

<STEP304>
When it is confirmed that the order file exists in the monitoring folder of the archive device 60, the archive device 60 refers to the path information described in the order file and acquires archive data from the file server 30.

<STEP305>
Next, as shown in FIG. 5, the archive device 60 shifts to an imaging process for creating a media image based on the archive data acquired from the file server 30 and executes the imaging process.

<STEP306>
When the imaging process by the archive device 60 is completed, an empty medium (for example, CD-ROM or DVD-ROM) designated in the order file is taken in and stored in a drive (disk drive).

<STEP307>
The archive data that has been imaged is recorded in a designated blank medium (for example, a recording medium such as a CD-ROM or a DVD-ROM).

<STEP308>
After the recording of the archived data that has been imaged, the process proceeds to the verification process. “Verify” refers to comparing and collating the imaging data imaged by the archive device 60 and the recording data of the recording result in bit units. By performing the verification, both data are completely matched, This is to ensure that the imaging data is completely recorded on the media without failure.

<STEP309>
If the comparison and collation result by the verify process is completely coincident, the process proceeds to STEP 310. If the result is not coincident for some reason, the process proceeds to STEP 306 and recording is performed again.

<STEP310>
If the result of the comparison and verification by the verify process is a complete match, a print process is performed on the media label surface (the identification name entry surface of a recording medium such as a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM). The print design of the media label surface is, for example, a plan view of a CD-ROM disk as shown in FIG. 6, and the print design is, for example, from the top, the media ID, item name, customer name, order number, Media type, worker, archive date / time, and name.

  For example, a barcode is added to the media ID and the order number, and CD-R or DVD-R characters are printed as the media type.

<STEP311>
Next, the medium (recording medium such as CD-ROM or DVD-ROM) is ejected from the drive of the archive device 60. The operator stores this medium in the warehouse designated in P802 of the input instruction screen shown in FIG. In addition, if necessary, the archive information is printed on the media label surface such as a CD-ROM disk shown in the plan view of FIG. Can be judged.

  Further, when searching for archive media in response to a restore request, the archive search screen is activated to display the “archive media search” screen shown in FIG. For example, a search condition is created from pull-down key P121, text input area T121, and pull-down key P122.

  In the pull-down key P121, for example, any one of “Order number”, “Product name”, “Customer name”, “Delivery date”, “Archive registration date / time”, “Archive completion date / time” is selected. Can be specified.

  With the pull-down key P122, any one of “starts with” and “includes” can be specified for the input content of the text input area T121, and multi-faceted search is possible.
