Numerical Simulation and Analysis of Commercial Print Production Systems
Abstract:Digital transformation of commercial print production brings new opportunities including exploitation of embedded sensing and computing power that enable real-time communication during various phases of the production chain, and dynamic reconfiguration of production flow. Simulation based modeling can help to exploit these opportunities at both strategic and operational level. In this paper we report our ongoing work on simulating a print production system. We draw close parallel between print production design and electronic design automation, and model print production system as a network of interconnected, distinct processes. We describe our simulation framework, preliminary results, and validation against queueing network theory.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
