FLEXO Magazine : December 2011
Wednesday, March 21 8:30am - 10:30am FIRST and Foremost: Using FIRST in Production Planning Session Chairs: Eric Ferguson, MacDermid Printing Solutions & Karen Daniels, Coca-Cola North America We all know about using FIRST as a process control tool to help establish predictable print quality. But when it comes to production planning, FIRST can help you get a jump-start where it time really is money—in the press room. As in all things, the devil’s in the details. To illustrate how FIRST can be used as a production guide, we’ll present a “live job” in the pre-production stage. Industry experts will demonstrate FIRST methods for analyzing the design, planning for prepress, and executing the printing. Don’t be surprised if we toss a curve-ball (or two) at you for discussion...this is the real world, after all! It all comes down to this: The skills of your own production planning team can make- or-break deadlines, print quality and ultimately the success of each print job (aka “our profit!”) This session will get you thinking about your production planning, and ways you can improve your printing process and increase profitability—on each and every print job. Before you hit the production floor, let FIRST be your guide to successful print production.
