Despite raw material price increases, tax hikes, wage increases etc, most printers continue to face falling prices. Margins are under severe pressure, yet for small printers the problem is to find the time to make changes for the better.

Spread across a 3 month period, with a pick ‘n' mix format, companies choose the key topics to tackle, from key performance measures and machine efficiency to production planning and layout improvement.
