QUESTION: What is "on-demand printing and publishing"?
ANSWER: Basically, on-demand printing is a form of "just-in-time" inventory
management. The term "on-demand printing" refers to the notion
of printing documents only when they are needed, as opposed to
printing large quantities of documents and storing them on a shelf
until they are needed.
Over the last couple of years, the concept of creating documents on
demand has been extended to include non-paper documents
(i.e., on-line documents). On-line documents are usually in
format or HTML format.
The term "on-demand printing and publishing" encompasses
both paper documents and on-line documents.
