Perfect Specifications

Manage specifications across the lifecycle from concept to production

Today, packaging specifications are scattered across multiple systems preventing proper management, review and control. This leads to higher costs and the potential for recall issues due to lack of materials control across the enterprise.

Perfect Package enables companies to define and manage any kind of product specification including, but not limited to, formulations, raw material, packaging components, and work instructions. It provides a centralized method to author, approve, manage and drive reuse of packaging specifications. It enables companies to use structured specifications to build and maintain multi-level bills-of-material (BOMs), conduct “where-used” analysis and identify packaging material savings.

Perfect Package is easily integrated with company external systems such as ERP and CAD to get products to market faster, improve design efficiency, and lower the cost of new product introductions

Perfect Package ensures that “a single version of the truth” is shared across the extended enterprise for product data. This enables companies to bring products to market faster while maximizing re-use of information to reduce costs.

Key Highlights and Benefits

  • Significantly reduce raw material costs by formally controlling product specification changes to encourage re-use and standardization of raw materials and suppliers
  • Increase employee productivity by standardizing product definition, enabling multiple employees to work on the same specification and setting standard review and approval processes globally
  • Reduce legal liability by managing materials to avoid product recalls and regulation violations
  • Improve cross-organization collaboration using a digital workspace which fosters social collaboration to connect with colleagues in communities and securely share information and content
  • Execute change order requests holistically with “where used” analysis
  • Align CAD & BOM with data-driven processes 

Simplification of product prototypes; today with fewer than 70 templates we manage through ENOVIA over 5,000 types of packaging material and this means significant savings in management time and in harmonization for all the Group’s entities.
