CommercialWhereas other printing applications are often producing similar products on a weekly basis the commercial printing industry is far mire complex and sensitive to changes in technology. Commercial Printing is also a summary word for a vast variety of end products and the technologies to produce them.
The printing capacity available on the market has also generated a vast competition that has introduced a pricing structure requiring a continuos cost management and cost control. Process also has to do with people, with profitability, with performance that determine how competitive the organisation remains during the life cycle of the equipment installed.
Commercial Printing productions are not just complex because of their size or their special product / production requirement but also because of their continuos strive for better quality products. The question arises whether there is a limit and a need to maintain in house the knowledge and skills to optimise a production facilities performance? But can we afford to continue to operate tomorrow the way we operate today?
The quality improvement efforts are worldwide efforts of Commercial Printers of different sizes in every corner of this world. All production facilities are, sooner or later, confronted and concerned with quality, quality assurance and production cost management, not to say cost reduction efforts.
The affordable answer is Eurografica.
Eurografica will help you with the Strategic Investment Planning Business Unit to demonstrate and answer based on costing models the best equipment configuration, not just as an investment but also the operative costs.
We are Systems People and Eurografica’s Production System - and Printing Facility Design Team will manage with you any transition requirement to remain on the competitive edge. The foresight for our industry does not exceed a few years. This means that within a few years your Commercial Printing may look so different that you can no longer specify the requirement by today’s standard. We therefore need to do two things. With any transition project we need to implement flexibility, with the entire plant we need to be able to produce the unknown of the future. We also need to assess our organisational culture and develop a new vision. However whatever we do is focusing on Production.
Eurografica’s Process Optimisation activities not only plan and manage the transition from project to production but extremely valuable throughout the production years. We need to be aware of issues, skills and tools that will enable them to bring forth any improvements in the future. What are these tools? There are three underlying criteria for a successful Commercial Printing production. The first is Quality, good quality is needed to satisfy advertisers, readers as well as editorial and ownership demands. The second is Time, to be on-time with all our time sensitive processes, to be able to adjust production modes to the ever changing production demands without being late. The third is Cost. Cost control or cost management will ultimately make the industry viable for the generations to come.
There can only be a successful turnaround of the business if the underlying people’s attitude and behaviour, their current and future skills, their ability to take on responsibility and be accountable for the outcome is embedded deeply in the organisation. The Organisation and Management Experts from Eurografica help you here with the same skills and knowledge as with the technical part of our consultancy services. By intention and managing the change process the project result in a visionary new definition for the organisation, where equipment, architecture and production are in harmony with the ultimate goal of any organisation, to be fully functional and profitable for a long time to come.
