Pipelining means taking the books from one production line and placing them on the next with the next step weighed in the balance. An example may be anything from acquisition to editing to marketing to sales. Pipelining is concerned with getting the book rolling at the right moment to publish it on time. It is even more crucial in the publishing business since, unlike most other kinds of work, no one can miss their deadline.

Everything must be pipelined, and all publishers must comprehend the pipelining process. Hence, through a strict pipeline, most mishaps can be avoided as long as sufficient time is allowed for publication, for example, whether the book has been well edited, whether its market is strong and whether it can sell.

The point in time, when the book is released, depends upon pipelining and ought to be something each publisher considers. That way, they can be confident the books come on schedule, and everything is in order by sticking to a clearly defined pipeline. This will further ensure that the book will succeed and achieve its goal.

The book itemization process, known as pipelining, is another critical area. However, it permits publishers always to have a supply of new titles, which is crucial to blocking out the competition and keeping public interest. This also helps publishers get a handle on their purchasing better — i.e., how many copies of a given title they will need to order and when they will need them. Pipelining also represents an opportunity for publishers to realize economies of scale and thus save money. The printer can charge lower because when a publisher sees that a specific title will print many copies, then a publisher, knowing it will be able to recoup costs through sales, will often be willing to pay a lower price.
