The transition from letterpress to digital printing provides the opportunity for a more effective way to communicate information on postal items. Current Postmarks include information such as postage value, date of posting and equipment identification, but this information is not readily machine readable. The emergence of digital printing and image processing technologies offers the opportunity to encode critical data in a form which is more suitable for computer data capture. However, the adoption of these technologies requires careful study, both to maximise the benefits from their introduction and because digital printing technology may bring with it the need for different security measures than those commonly used in association with letterpress printing. The standard presents a recommended process for designing Digital Postage Mark applications - i.e. applications linked to the use of digital printing and image data capture technologies in the postal industry, most particularly for the evidencing of postage accounting and/or payment. The process described is based on a cyclic model, involving Business Planning; Systems Analysis; Security Analysis and Detailed DPM Design. It is assumed that users of the standard are familiar with normal processes involved in the design of computer-based applications and the standard therefore limits itself to aspects which are specific to DPM applications design. In particular, the document covers only requirements and considerations relating to applications that use Digital Postage Marks, on individual postal items, as a means of communicating data (messages). The section on design covers only the design of the Digital Postage Marks themselves. It does not cover other aspects of design, including the possible use of other messages, transported by other means (e.g. statements of mailing), to provide for the communication of additional data, even though these may be just as important. The defined process is a recommended one only and DPM applications designers are not obligated to follow it. However, its use should ensure both that all relevant aspects are taken into account in the design process and that the resulting specifications have a degree of commonality of structure which should make them comparable with similar specifications produced by other parties. It is hoped that this will make them more easily intelligible, and less open to ambiguity, for implementers. The standard assumes, but does not require, that it is desired to implement Digital Postage Marks which conform to UPU standards S27, S28 and S25 (see Bibliography) and provides a guide to the use of these standards. However, many of the guidelines, recommendations and checklists would apply equally to the design of DPM applications using Digital Postage Marks based on symbologies other than those supported by S28 2) , or requiring data which cannot be accommodated within S25-defined 3) data constructs. This document has three main purposes. It is intended to serve as: a) a standard process: for the design of applications using Digital Postage Marks; b) a guide: to help in structuring local standards for Digital Postage Marks; c) a cross-reference: to point to other standards and documents related to DPM applications.
