Information is an indispensable factor for any enterprise. It can be a record or a
document generated for every transaction that is made for future reference, either
in paper or in a digital format. Printing industry is one such industry in which
managing information in various formats with latest workflows and technologies
could be a nightmare or a challenge for any operator or a user when each process,
from a last bit of information to a printed product, always depends on another
process. Information has to be harmonized artistically in order to avoid production
downtime or employees pointing fingers at each other. This paper analyses how the
implementation of Electronic Document Management System (EDMS) could help
the printing industry to access stored documents immediately within and across
departments, irrespective of geographical boundaries. This paper initially outlines
a brief history, the contemporary EDMS system and some illustrated examples
alongside a study conducted by a Library as a pilot area for evaluating EDMS. The
paper ends with an imitative proposal that maps several document managementbased
activities for the implementation of EDMS for printing industry.
