So, the term output management is understood very differently, delineated, and communicates. Terms are inconsistently used and interpreted different market requirements. This would lead so the participants due to the complexity of the subject to problems in the presentation and positioning at the party and give rise to misunderstandings in the talks with the users. Accordingly, the profile of the industry at trade fairs and other events is low, so that the party lacks the appropriate framework, to present their products and to contact the user in an appropriate manner in contact. For this reason, the output-management competence center plans steps with which this situation for users and providers can be equally improved.
For a more intense include among other things the Organization and implementation of events (workshops, exhibitions and lectures), the publishing of publications (case studies and studies), as well as measures The providers communicate with each other as well as with the users. Accompanying this, checklists, recommendations and decision support should be developed and made available for users. To take advantage of synergy effects, the competence center output management user interface issues with other working groups and competence centers (such as standards, compliance issues, post processing etc.) within the VOI will coordinate closely.
