Optimus will debut its Dash Job Ganging software at the FESPA Africa expo, taking place from 2-4 July 2014, at the Gallagher Convention Centre. This follows the launch of Optimus’ Dash Job Ganging at Ipex 2014.

At the heart of Optimus dash, the focus remains on eliminating waste, whether as a key stroke or as unnecessary processes which print buyers will not pay extra for. With this philosophy firmly in mind, Optimus dash Job Ganging can help to generate even greater efficiencies and savings.

Dash users can identify jobs suitable for ganging using a comprehensive search facility (image 1) and input the information required to create the ‘master’ job (image 2)-this can be elements of a job or all parts. The master job, which clearly identifies which customer’s job has been ganged, (image 3) will then collect all costs including materials, labour and outwork. All costs are automatically sent back, in real time, to the original production jobs (image 4) based on the percentage of costs originally recorded. This ensures that maximum production efficiencies are gained from ganging and that costs are recorded against the individual job.
