printadvice provides a sound foundation for investment decisions. Over many years of international project experience, methods and processes have been developed that serve to analyze and evaluate the efficiency of printing systems. As a first step, based on an analysis of print jobs and production, technically realistic production concepts are worked out. These take into account especially the appropriate key technologies, existing and future organizational structures, as well as the company’s strategic orientation in the market. Based on individual order structure and local costs, the production systems singled out are then evaluated as to their efficiency. With the aid of computer simulations, printadvice finally determines the optimum machinery or best investment alternatives. These production systems and their efficiency form the basis for a sound investment decision in the context of the company’s specific strategy.
