In small or medium-sized companies, packaging management is often looked after in non-specialist areas where packaging expertise is lacking. Packaging issues don’t get the attention they need, as they are not one of the core tasks of the division that ends up taking care of packaging. Costs can be reduced by means of requirements-specific specifications for the packaging components. Furthermore, the complete value-added process should be viewed holistically.

Professional packaging management supports you in taking advantage of your savings potential. With us as a partner at your side, you can benefit from our many years of packaging expertise.

Documentation of inventory

Notes on clipboard Inventory

Your existing products are our basis for creating initial documentation. In the course of this process, we determine how widely the packaging systems and their components vary. This analysis represents the foundation of lean, smart and structured packaging management.

Cardboard boxes in different sizes Variation among packaging systems

We analyze the existing packaging systems with their components, focusing on standardization possibilities. Our goal is to keep the variation among packaging systems as low as possible (or necessary) for a large number of your given products. This results in a lean administrative burden as well as positive monetary effects through the bundling of request packages.

If there is a new product launch in your company, we first check whether an existing packaging system can be used for it. If this is not possible, we will develop a new packaging system. Ideally, this new system can replace an existing standard in packaging systems, so we can meet the goal of minimizing variation.

Check on clipboard Specification

We carry out a functional analysis of each individual packaging component. In this way, we can interpret the specification of the packaging material so that is neither under- nor over-specified. Since a lower specification causes damage on the market and excessive specification increases component costs unnecessarily, it is absolutely crucial to avoid both scenarios.

A disciplined approach to analytical consideration creates the conditions that prevent loss of control and maintain a clear structure. For this purpose, we will perform a regular analysis of the product properties at fixed times and compare them with the functions of the existing packaging systems.

Seal of approval Material and packaging tests

For the successful implementation of the specification management as well as for the determination of the packaging requirements regarding the product protection, material and packaging tests have to be carried out. We will integrate the packaging requirements discussed with you into a test plan tailored to the product. Furthermore, we carry out the coordination, documentation and implementation of the results in further development steps.
