icon testing Productivity: Utilization & Availability

Actual production time, the time spent on printing sellable pieces, becomes increasingly important as print quality meets application requirements. Higher operational Availability, the ratio of Actual to Potential production time, equates to improved performance, lean operations, a higher return-on-investment and the resultant financial advantages. Understanding availability variations with job content also allows for more accurate cost estimates.

SpencerLab is experienced in testing the productivity of digital presses, having established patent-pending test parameters and protocols that allow quantitative determination of the Potential production time as well as the Actual production time, utilized to produce sellable print pieces. SpencerLab's procedures and tools enable efficient collection of data in a highly productive environment. Real-time analyses can be viewed anytime, anywhere.
