    The purpose of the electronically integrated processes for print (EIP) is to make sure that the information originated in a creative process flows uniformly through the prepress phase of the production. To achieve this goal, a standardized transmission form which supports the various requirements and properties of the products must be adopted. The Open Document Architecture (ODA) of ISO has been proposed for this purpose. Despite its current shortcomings, the ODA has many attractive properties which have been adequately pointed out. The integration into the OSI reference model, the formal definition of the standard, the controllable expansibility of the standard, and tools which support application development based on the formal definitions of the ODA are all examples of features which should be studied when the standards for the EIP are under consideration.
