Medium-sized commercial Print Service Providers (PSP) are adopting digital technologies to improve their capabilities and to manage the production more efficiently. A workflow solution that encompasses the entire system from pre-press to shipping is therefore needed. An important component of this future workflow is a mobile platform that enables anyone from the management down to the operators to visualize, understand and interact with the collected information or with the operational intelligence engine. We present a software application solution built on open source software that can be used to simulate what-if scenarios for pre-sale of large digital printing presses and for manufacturing operations monitoring and control. The end-user creates models of his PSP and scenarios using an intuitive web-based application. The application interacts with the back-end cloud based SaaS to run user generated Ptolemy models, optimization engines and data storage. The user can then compare results and make more informed decision on his print operation. The solution was built with the end-user in mind by being both intuitive and scalable.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
