1. A determination device comprising:
a first storage unit configured to store one or more predetermined processing rules of a post-printing processor, the one or more predetermined processing rules including at least one of the following rules for imposition:
maximum and minimum values of differences between a cover width and a body width;
maximum and minimum values of differences between a spine width and a milling width; or
layout of pages;
a second storage unit configured to store a specification of the post-printing processor; and
a determination unit configured to determine whether a post-printing processing instruction information generated by a pre-printing processor satisfies the one or more processing rules, to determine whether the post-printing processing instruction information satisfies the specification of the post-printing processor, and to notify a determination result together with at least one of the specification of the post-printing processor or the one or more processing rules, when determining that the post-printing processing instruction information satisfies either the specification or the one or more processing rules, or satisfies neither the specification nor the one or more processing rules.
