Abstract

This report documents the results of a study of user requirements for, and product availability of, printing devices for use in electronic document delivery systems. This study, entitled DOCTERM, was one of a series of studies commissioned by the Commission of the European Communities under its document delivery action plan (DOCDEL). It was undertaken by Logica, with the assistance of the UK Paper and Board, Printing and Packaging Industries Research Association (PIRA), during the period April to November 1982. The main body of the report provides a Management Summary (section 2), together with a discussion of the relationship between User Needs and the State of Art of printer technology (section 3). It then goes on, in section 4, to discuss the European Supply Situation and to relate this to the Commission's intention to encourage the conduct of document delivery pilot experiments. Finally, section 5 describes the main Conclusions and Recommendations. Recommendations are made for an action plan for immediate implementation.
