The following post was submitted by 2016 President's Conference sponsor, Heidelberg.
Your profit per job should be the driver of which technology and processes you use to produce a job.
Think of an ideal production scenario:
1) Your MIS/workflow would determine (based on cost parameters) how a job is scheduled and produced to maximize your return on that entire job.
2) Your color management is so well defined that quality across technologies is a given and will match.
3) Data from your production devices would provide exact and timely feedback for that critical information loop on cost versus estimate.
With Heidelberg, that production scenario is a reality today, not a futuristic “wish list”!
Heidelberg is committed to improving and expanding its digital solutions as its customers need to run jobs from one to a million sheets.
The crossover cost point of digital versus offset technology is much, much lower than people...
