Abstract
Material management is one of the most important factors affecting printing companies’ profits in China. Competition has been intensified in traditional printing market. More and more printing companies need innovational methods to improve printing management in order to keep their competition. We analyzed material management problems in printing companies and presented a cloud based material management to manage printing material effectively and efficiently. We focused on managing raw material within printing company to simplify the prototype system. Business process management method was used to identify material management related processes. Business process model and notation was adapted to model and express identified processes. A printing material management prototype system was designed and deployed with Software as a Service model. Results showed this model could reduce cost for printing management and help printing companies manage the raw material effectively and efficiently. Much work will focus on extending the scope of material management in the future.
