Following the placing of an order by the customer, an assessment of each production operation and its complexity is required. However, a sound knowledge of printing and allied processes is essential before an intelligent understanding can be reached and each job evaluated in terms of production planning, methods, processes and materials.

It is important that the all the technical information gathering, preparation of work specifications, relating to all work types, specialist operations requiring external production and delivery dates are taken into account. This should include scheduling and loading of production times, production methods and processes, and the technology to be used.

This should also include the provision of all the materials on the dates on which they must be available, ensuring printing and delivery dates can be achieved. The setting of realistic times required completing the work and the time available for production.
