Packaging Development Process
Research – Information Gathering
We review existing and new designs to determine cost savings, sustainability, manufacturability, and appearance. If we’re developing new technologies for a project, we focus on improving functionality or reducing costs in accordance with project objectives.
Next, our package development team reviews the design to sustainably create a manufacturable concept that is as cost-effective as possible. Using CAD software, we establish the design’s form, fit, and function. We lightweight the design as much as possible while maintaining its integrity, and we select a recyclable material for the final product.
Review (PDR) –
Before release, we complete PDR with the Project Manager and the Tooling, Processing, Assembly, and Quality teams. We review critical areas and customer-driven design elements for manufacturability. During this step, Tooling may suggest modifications based on the tool’s complexity and longevity. The customer then reviews all proposed changes for sign-off before we implement them in the final design.
We create final working models for functional testing to verify the assumptions and decisions made in the previous steps. Using our technological resources, we supply rendering and animation showing shelf impression, assembly sequence, and customer use for final review.
