Abstract
If engineering designers consciously design product and package in an integrated manner, there is a great potential for industrial global enterprises to develop and produce mechanical products, such as exhaust extraction systems, ear washer machines and fuel handling systems while simultaneously obtaining error-free deliveries, saving costs and avoiding quality problems. Thus, the authors of this paper see a challenge in developing the theory and methodology for Integrated Product and Package Design. ln this paper we take a first step in this direction. Firstly, we have carried out a broad review of literature, which shows that there is a need for research into Integrated Product and Packaging Design. Secondly, we have analysed three cases... (More)
If engineering designers consciously design product and package in an integrated manner, there is a great potential for industrial global enterprises to develop and produce mechanical products, such as exhaust extraction systems, ear washer machines and fuel handling systems while simultaneously obtaining error-free deliveries, saving costs and avoiding quality problems. Thus, the authors of this paper see a challenge in developing the theory and methodology for Integrated Product and Package Design. ln this paper we take a first step in this direction. Firstly, we have carried out a broad review of literature, which shows that there is a need for research into Integrated Product and Packaging Design. Secondly, we have analysed three cases from industrial practice, which show that a conscious and integrated design of product and package has positive logistics effects, whereas neglecting this issue might result in higher costs and quality problems. On the basis of these cases we have made an initial cross-case analysis, which indicates that it is possible to develop the terminology and methodology for Integrated Product and Package Design.
