Whether you call it Smart Print Manufacturing, Industry 4.0 or don't name it at all, the emerging trend across all printing segments revolves around meeting the needs of brand owners and the design trade in ever-shrinking time frames with growing amounts of customization. It becomes a supply chain challenge to ensure that raw materials are available, print capacity is in alignment with changing customer demands, and every ounce of efficiency is being wrung from production workflows. This presentation identifies the touch-points along the supply chain and workflow to show where to look for bottlenecks, how to rethink the supply chain into your business and out of your business, and how to enable mass customization products regardless of which print segment you serve.
