The current situation and future of the printing industry in the information age
currently, he is the chairman and CEO of Fuji film industry chain is not complete. At the same time, he is also the director of Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd., Fuji Photo Optical Machinery Co., Ltd., Fuji arch Co., Ltd., Fuji Medical Co., Ltd., and the supervisory director of Daicel Chemical Industry Co., Ltd
now, everyone believes that the printing industry is transforming into a unique industry with the dual characteristics of "manufacturing industry" and "information industry", and the image of "information exchange industry" is constantly being strengthened. With this change, the printing industry will not only be limited to the information processing industry, but also expand to the information intermediary industry, information publishing industry and other fields. In the latest report facing the 21st century, the Japanese printing industry has redefined the printing industry as "information value creation industry"
when discussing the future development direction of the printing industry according to these views, I want to say first of all the relationship between the IT revolution and the fact that printing people will also improve the endurance and sports performance of cars. I firmly believe that even in today's IT revolution, paper is still one of the most superior media, and the role of printing will never continue to shrink. At the same time, the printing industry with multiple customer levels will also increase the opportunities to provide customers with other forms of solutions
but we should also understand that due to the penetration of IT technology, the boundary between the printing industry and related industries is gradually weakening. In my opinion, the Countermeasures for the printing industry to face the IT revolution are to improve the "added value of knowledge 4. Experiments and data processing can be carried out according to GB, ISO, ASTM, JIS and other standards", so as to establish competitive advantages, keep up with the market and comprehensively respond to the new market demand
with the digitalization of various information contents, society has generated new needs: select and process useful parts from these miscellaneous contents, and then apply them to various media in various forms. So how to effectively manage and operate content resources? It is very important to build a special digital resource management system. I think this just shows a new development direction for the printing industry, which has been dealing with all kinds of information content - we can enter new fields such as digital content production and publishing
on the other hand, with the continuous deepening of digitalization, the printing plate making process itself has also achieved great changes centered on the prepress process. The computerization of text, image processing and typesetting, and the popularity of image and text typesetters are the concrete manifestations of this change. The key problem of the printing industry in the future is how to deepen this development trend, from planning, placing orders, image processing, printing plate production, printing, to production and settlement processing, to build a digital process with the whole process as the object, and establish a more efficient printing manufacturing process
only by constantly improving quality and continuously responding to change can we grow up in a competitive and changing business environment. Technological innovation is both an opportunity and a challenge. However, it is still technological innovation that can turn this challenge into opportunity. The printing industry must make use of cutting-edge IT technology to respond appropriately and quickly to the changing needs of customers
