Technical Design

Optimize package design through seamless collaboration between designers and engineers

Many times, packaging engineers need to recreate package concepts from scratch. Incompatible file formats and lack of detailed designs require engineers translate sketches into 3D designs, which may lead to loss of key design elements. Multiple rounds of rework occur with marketing, manufacturing and purchasing functions along with external design agencies, artwork studios, mold engineers, and suppliers working in their own silos to optimize the package design. Many times, this results in suboptimal packaging that takes too long to develop.

Perfect Package helps engineers translate concepts rapidly into qualified designs through tight integration between styling and mechanical shape design, and conduct structural load analysis to ensure it meets all required technical specification. It also allows engineers to create automations, materials and part libraries and workflows to accelerate the development of new packages or adapt existing packaging designs to meet the needs of local consumers.

By working together on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, all partners and suppliers can work concurrently to create packaging that wins at the shelf, delights consumers, and flows seamlessly through the supply chain at up to half the time and cost of traditional development efforts.

Key Highlights and Benefits

  • Accelerate the engineering process by using automation tools to refine the designs, automatically adding bottle elements such as push-ups, necks, and threads
  • Lower costs by leveraging pre-set materials libraries to achieve the right look they want while using already sourced materials
  • Improve qualification efforts by conducting initial validation tests through up-front simulation
