  • Patent number: 11301192
    Abstract: A printing management system includes a first acquisition unit, a second acquisition unit, and a determination unit. The first acquisition unit acquires one or more pieces of image quality information. Each of the one or more pieces of image quality information is information on an image quality required for a printing result obtained by processing a piece of print information. The second acquisition unit acquires a printing characteristic of a printer. The determination unit determines a printing order of multiple pieces of print information in the printer, by using multiple pieces of image quality information, each of which is acquired for one of the multiple pieces of print information by the first acquisition unit, and by using the printing characteristic acquired by the second acquisition unit.
