Packaging companies rely on Boyum software solutions to increase production efficiency, optimize resource capacity and logistics operations, manage traceability, ensure product quality, and get real-time insights into their business. Here are some of the most common challenges we see for Packaging companies nowadays:
Productivity losses due to limited optimization of resources
Your ability to provide an accurate delivery date is a challenging task. Especially when dealing with complex BOM’s and multi-constraint resources combined with large numbers of short-run orders.
Limited integration of logistics and production operations
Packaging companies have to ensure an optimum flow of products and the associated information throughout their operations. This runs from the receipt and storage of raw materials and components to production, receipt back into the warehouse, and shipping of the finished products. Boyum solutions can manage this whole cycle.
Need to ensure consistent product traceability
Boyum solutions help companies in the packaging industry comply with regulatory requirements, such as batch traceability. Based on the use of industry standards such as GS1, which enable the unique identification of logistic units and products (with their comprehensive information such as batch number, batch attributes, …). In this way, companies can act swiftly in case any intervention is required.
Need to ensure the highest product quality
Packaging materials are developed to contain other products and therefore can impact these products as well. So the packaging materials themselves have to meet the highest quality standards. This is especially true for primary packaging materials that come into contact with e.g. food or life sciences products. The quality control process to ensure and document this is completely integrated in Boyum’s logistics and production solutions
Unplanned and costly corrective maintenance
Massive and costly machinery is at the heart of many packaging manufacturers. Keeping them in working order is imperative for daily operations and long-term financial viability
Limited visibility in the balace between stock levels and requirements
No visibility means you cannot make timely purchasing and replenishing inventory decisions to reduce out-of-stocks while simultaneously reducing inventory.
