Learning The Secrets About Resources
it is in 2013 that digital wide format print was identified two be very vibrant in the print market. There are however, three major reasons why the wide format print is increasingly gaining popularity among people, this may be as a result of increased demand to meet customer demands as need for commercial printer specialist.
There is still a high rate of technological development in wide-format print. There are new ways of printing and designing emerging each day such as signage, package prototyping as well as label printing that seem to be emerging each day.
There is however a problem, despite the speed of production and resolution improving each day, the rate at which the devices are being integrated into wider owner business and production workflow has been largely neglected.
The wide format printers are operated in isolation as compared to all the other kinds of ERP systems. This does not happen because integration devices are not available but because the customers lack focus and awareness in automation.
The main barrier is that most wide print format requires more meticulous finishing than all the other kinds of print leading to increasing costs. Wide format printing most of the time happen as a one time job that requires a lot of time management, elaborate finishing as well as shipping and creative inputs. With high levels of customization being the norm, there may be a reluctance to believe that automation can help in what has always been a labor-intensive business.
However, the manual method of doing it is not as good as they think it is as wit results into wastage of resources and time over time. Inability to load-balance work across different machines because color matching cannot be achieved reliably can cause delays and waste production capacity, leaving some machines idles while others are running full-time.
Further to this, it is important to note that any particular point that manual process occurs is a point whereby extra costs are incurred which are left unaccounted for. Since most of this jobs use per square costing method, it is usually very difficult to be able to account for every cost incurred and therefore leading to them being sold at a loss. Lack of detailed information about job set-up times and finishing operations, with missing or inaccurate media consumption figures make it difficult to analyse where bottlenecks are occurring and where money is being made or lost.
The wide format printer will be crowded very soon and this will create awn increase pressure to offset the extra costs.
