Most DP managers know that systems come with printers. They also know that when ordering a system, one must analyze the printed output requirements and order a sufficient number of printers to handle the load on schedule. The units are assumed to be reliable and, in view of the cost of the large volume of paper processed each month, not overly expensive. In most medium- and large-size installations, the cost of the paper exceeds the cost of the printers.
