Flexibility has become a core competitive competency for the packaging industry, but it has several facets: 1) the flexibility to produce a variety of products using the same machines and to produce the same products on different machines; 2) the flexibility to produce new products on existing machines; and 3) the flexibility of machines to accommodate changes in product design. This eBook examines where to focus your efforts to gain the most market share.
Covered in this eBook:
- How globalization, mass customization and SKU proliferation are driving the market for more flexible packaging lines.
- The 6 key components for building flexible manufacturing processes that become critical strategic resources.
- How flexibility also improves quality management, scalability, data collection and supply chain coordination.
- Practical strategies for the successful implementation of flexible manufacturing built on continuous improvement.
