Within Quadient Inspire, version control takes place in two applications; Inspire Content Manager (ICM) and Inspire Interactive (II). You might be asking yourself, “why two places for version control within the same product?” That mainly comes down to one question – should your IT per...

Standard Data Models in CCM

How Interchangeable Parts Can Improve Your Capabilities   Many of us learned in school about Eli Whitney, Marc Isambard Brunel, Henry Leland and others who pioneered the idea of “interchangeable parts”, a concept which accelerated the industrial revolution. Over 200 years ago, standard, identical parts drove explosive growth in manufacturing as assembly line production replaced hand-crafting for many goods. In recent decades the ability to customize within any given set of standards, through modular design & production techniques, has shown that the same principles of interch...

However, if the next object is variable then it cannot be placed in the overlay and so that overlay is finished. The next static object in the Z-order will be placed in a new overlay and the process continues. It is good practice to place static objects consecutively in the ...
