Digital Imaging Association to explore Intelligent Manufacturing at February 18 meeting

diameetingfeb18-inAs the pace of business today accelerates, there is a greater need to access reliable plant-floor activity data to allow management to make faster, more informed decisions. Traditionally, industry growth during economic booms came from a casual management approach to decision making. “Knowledge spillover” – the acquisition of knowledge by hiring personnel from more successful competitors – as well as decisions based on gut instinct and on what the competition was doing, used to be the tools for decision making. Successful print business management teams realized long ago that this style of decision making needed to undergo a radical change.
Today, the only way to profitably grow a business is to continually fine-tune your processes. And the only way to do that is to have consistently reliable data from all aspects of your business – especially the plant floor – continually analyze that data, make informed decisions and hone your in-shop manufacturing processes. Today, successful printers focus on improving quality, compliance, agility and predictable product output while continually assessing their key performance indicators.
This month’s Digital Imaging Association (DIA) meeting has attracted a panel of experts who will delve into the experiences of a number of printing companies, the tools utilized, and the benefits of implementing Intelligent Manufacturing. The meeting will take place Wednesday, February 18 at Spicers, 200 Galcat Drive, Vaughan, Ontario. Refreshments will be served at 6 pm, with the meeting starting promptly at 7 pm and finishing at 8:30 pm.
