Packaging Specification Management

Many companies are still using spreadsheets, shared drives or outdated systems to manage the packaging lifecycle. These manual systems put your processes at high risk for human error and inefficiencies causing time and money loss and delays to market.

We hear the same common pain points from packaging professionals across the globe:

  • Too easy for packaging engineers to use the wrong version of a spec
  • Hard to manage “common specs” with uncontrolled values cause inconsistencies across specs
  • Using email to get approvals is error-prone and causes time delays
  • Outdated versions of specs are being sent to suppliers
  • Inefficient processes for linking related specs, technical drawings, die lines, and reference documents
  • Precious time is spent trying to find the impact of a spec change with regards to the BOMs it is associated with
  • Searching across fields for common traits is difficult and time-consuming

  • What is Pack Spec Management?
    • Pack Spec Management is the process of managing your packaging specifications within a centralized system where you can 1) control and approve the values and inputs of your specs through structured data and 2) automate the review, approval and distribution processes of specs to stakeholders.
  • What is a packaging specifications software system?
    • A packaging specification software system is a comprehensive platform for creating, maintaining and publishing your packaging specifications and related documents. These systems also utilize document control features, which give you the ability to create reports for compliance and allow you to have complete control over who can access which documents.
  • What is version control?
    • Version control is a process that keeps track of every modification made to a specification or document within your pack spec system. Version control helps teams mitigate issues that may arise from working from different versions of a specification, tracking every individual change by each contributor and helping prevent concurrent work from conflicting.
