Eight Costly Printing Issues – Lean Strategy Helps Minimize Printers’ Downtime
When you think of waste, what comes to mind? Many printers don’t think beyond paper—makeready, roll slab, roll damage, running waste and so on. But in the bigger picture, waste encompasses time and material expenses that consume resources without adding value. As we’ll see, if you want to minimize waste, you must embrace Process Excellence.
If you’re not adding value, you are creating waste. Printers add value when their processes change or convert the form, fit, and/or function (print, cut, fold, collate, stitch, etc.) of materials and items into the final product.
