SeSSionS SeSSionS 14 FORUM WORKBOOK SUNDAY,MAY2 Prepress: Streamlining the Digital Packaging Process 1:00Pm – 3:00Pm In an increasingly competitive marketplace, speed to market is the name of the game. The 2010 Prepress Session will focus on increasing the efficiency of digital packaging workflows through process improvement and innovative technology. Speakers representing prepress trade shops, printer/converters and consumer products companies will address their own workflows and how the need for speed has driven their decision-making. We’ll also hear how software technology can play a role in helping our organizations meet the challenges of productivity through Lean practices. Chair: Michael Butler, Southern Graphic Systems Co-chair: David Haradon, IPA Applying e-LEAN Efficiency to Your Digital Graphics Workflow Lean manufacturing efficiency improvement techniques have long been applied to machinery based production workflows in a variety of industries. However, in the graphics and printing arena we are engaged with the digital workflows of our prepress environment. Find out how leading prepress companies are applying the new e-LEAN principles to increase efficiency, improve quality, reduce turnaround time and improve the profitability of their prepress operations. Jeffrey Hemme, OEC Graphics, Inc. Efficiency through Design & Prepress Automation Tools The current marketplace and economy continue to increase demands on the packaging supply chain with regard to quality, lead-time and production costs. Such demands are driving packaging design/prepress companies to explore, implement and utilize automated prepress tools and workflow solutions to improve efficiency. By implementing currently available technologies, companies are able to increase productivity, improve communication and greatly reduce errors in their workflows – all of which lead to a more efficient process. Join us to learn about available tools and how to evaluate them for your operations. Larry Moore, EskoArtwork Streamlining Prepress: Plate, Press, Packaging The premium package is one that is consistently reproduced at the right time in the right place and at the right cost. Using the flexibility of an entire print network to meet customer expectations and business needs requires standardization. This starts in prepress and continues through to platemaking and into the press operation. The ongoing journey to establish standard operating conditions and minimize variables in flexo printing will be described as it relates to streamlining the entire supply chain. Highlights include: advancements in technology; the integration of systems; and the merging of job functions. Streamlining in this manner enables effective scheduling and consistency for delivering quality products at the right time and for the right cost. J.
