Product 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 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 Product Specifications also manages manufacturing site-specific BOMs, BOM costing, materials compliance, dynamic label copy generation, and primary/secondary packaging design tools (bill of packaging). To ensure consistency between R&D and purchasing, users can integrate this product with transactional systems such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP).

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

Key Highlights and Benefits

  • Significant 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
  • Enforce quality and regulatory standards on materials and finished goods originating from multiple countries of origin and being applied in products across multiple countries of sale
  • Execute change order requests holistically with “where used” analysis

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.
