Abstract: A computer-implemented print management system and method includes the application of business rules to a print situation, and the application of meta-rules to the business rules to choose zero or more business rules to fire. The meta-rules may suppress the business rule or modify actions associated with a business rule. The actions associated with a business rule may include one or more of the following: present information to the user, request information from the user, request a choice or decision by the user, or allow, modify or deny the print job. The print situation, the chosen business rule and the user interaction may be recorded to a print usage database, which may be used in subsequent print situations.
