From the Editor: 3D Printing at In-plants
The topic is sure to come up at this month's ACUP conference, which marks the beginning of the spring conference season. Actually, I already attended an in-plant event in New York, a Xerox conference called simple@work that featured a track of sessions just for in-plants. I enjoyed catching up with the dozen or so managers in attendance and hearing speakers offer ideas on how managers can be more productive while growing their businesses.
One speaker, Lisa Hoover, Bucknell University's director of Publications, Print and Mail, detailed how her in-plant plays a crucial role in the success of the Pennsylvania school's fund-raising campaigns. It was a good endorsement of the importance of an in-plant to the parent organization's success.
