Title: A SYSTEM AND A METHOD FOR OPTIMIZING A PRINT PRODUCTION PROCESS
Abstract:
A computer-implemented method of automatically optimizing a print production process, comprising the operations of: - receiving a printed matter specification, comprising data regarding at least one printed matter, as input data from a remote device; and - determining an optimized print production specification on basis of the printed matter specification and print production resources data; wherein the operation of determining an optimized print production specification comprises: - fetching print production resources data, comprising printing press data regarding at least one available printing press; - determining all possible signatures by means of the printed matter specification; - determining, for each printing press, all possible print sheet sizes and print areas, by means of the printing press data; - determining all possible impositions by means of at least the signatures and the print areas; and - determining an optimized production specification by means of at least the impositions, the print areas, and at least one optimization variable selected from a group of optimization variables comprising a cost variable, a delivery time, and an environmental variable.
