What is Packaging Specification Management?
Packaging specification is considered a form of master data for an operational team. Specifications often include details on material requirements such as size and construction, but can also include information regarding internal structure or dividers and details to ensure proper coatings and lifespan expectations. Manufacturing companies rely on this critical information to ensure that suppliers and vendors properly pack and send materials and finished goods throughout the supply chain. Managing these specifications and plans internally allows for real-time updates and changes over time.
How Do Package Specifications Impact Your Supply Chain Operations?
With ever-changing local, regional, national and international requirements on manufacturing and production, a common understanding and library of specifications ensures that your operations comply with regulations, quickly accessing plans and requirements when needed as part of the production and shipping processes. A common library and master data set of packaging specifications also allows for consistency and efficiency in daily processes, reducing time spent on regular communications with suppliers and staying up to date with pricing fluctuations of packaging materials.
