Harrison—Following a successful pilot production period, RR Donnelley has gone live with its Inventory Management Solution (IMS), a digitally driven production line that manufactures soft cover books on an as-needed basis to reduce publishers' inventory costs. Developed by Nipson, Muller Martini, MBO, Shuttleworth and Hunkeler collaboratively with RR Donnelley, IMS can cost-effectively produce short runs of perfect-bound books, then change over in a matter of minutes to print, bind and box a new title.
