Scheduling and Production Management for Book Printing Jobs
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/9/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Company, Scheduling and Production Management

The production controller in book printing company draws up the schedule of the internal and external operations that end with the delivery of bound copies to the warehouse a few weeks ahead of the publication date. The schedule, related to those of other books, takes account of any optimum publication date, cash flow demands, the time needed for the tasks and to route material to and from suppliers. Production staffs monitor progress and chase editors, designers and external suppliers to keep to agreed dates.

As all the books material passes between editor and designer and between book printing suppliers it is handled by production at every stage, as are any problems with suppliers. Outgoing material is accompanied by documentation and orders; incoming material is logged, sent on to editors and designers, and return dates agreed. If the return dates are not adhered to, the machine time booked at the printers will be missed and the book unduly delayed.

Despite of various book printing companies, there are some common rules for schedule and production frame management. The schedule and product frame management has a variety of functions and roles. Sometimes there is a product manager, and sometimes the role of product manager is shared by other roles. Frequently there is Profit and Loss (P&L) responsibility as a key metric for evaluating product manager performance. In some companies, the product management function is the hub of many other activities around the product. In others, it is one of many things that need to happen to bring a product to market and actively monitor and manage it in-market. Product management often serves an inter-disciplinary role, bridging gaps within the company between teams of different expertise, most notably between engineering-oriented teams and commercial-oriented teams. For example product managers often translate business objectives set for a product by Marketing or Sales into engineering requirements. Conversely they may work to explain the capabilities and limitations of the finished product back to Marketing and Sales. Product Managers may also have one or more direct reports who manage operational tasks and/or a Change Manager who can oversee new initiatives.

Product management is an organizational lifecycle function within a company dealing with the planning or forecasting or marketing of a product or products at all stages of the product lifecycle. Product development and product marketing are different yet complementary efforts with the objective of maximizing sales revenues, market share, and profit margins. The role of product management spans many activities from strategic to tactical and varies based on the organizational structure of the company. Product management can be a function separate on its own and a member of marketing or engineering. While involved with the entire product lifecycle, product management's main focus is on driving new product development. According to the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA), superior and differentiated new products is the number one driver of success and product profitability.
