In companies that operate in highly competitive markets, reducing time to market is crucial. The management of the artwork and labels in the packaging is constantly under pressure due to the increase in the number of projects to be delivered in a highly compressed time. In particular, the sanitary and consumer goods packaged together with stringent laws relating to the security and clarity of the declarations reported on the label: sn error in managing the artwork can result in increased costs and can damage the business.
The elements that influence packaging management.
The Artwork Management process is a delicate step, and mistakes due to bad management can impact and generate unforeseen costs. The implementation of a packaging involves several departments and people inside and outside the company and is a process-oriented pressure to increase the number of offices that run it: sales promotions, relaunches of existing products, change of compliance requirements.Interacting with so many external offices and actors creates complexity.
If there is no good coordination, inevitably generate repetitive and redundant processes, errors, poor traceability in the chain, and an inefficient database. But more importantly, it is likely to receive fines or the obligation to recall products that do not comply with legal requirements.
