PPF Mapping to JDF

The following table provides a recommended mapping of PPF keywords to JDF and XJDF.

The focus is on ConventionalPrinting therefore PPF mapping for finishing is currently not provided.

XJDF/@DescriptiveName

This does not work in a multi-sheet environment - who wins in case we have multiple values for one JobID?

Part/@SheetName

SheetName MUST be unique within the job
