We have put together a checklist – the top 5 ways a technical assistant resource can help you. If you need help in one or more of these ways, you might want to consider reaching out to a company to help solve your biggest industrial packaging problems.
- Product Damage
#1 one reason to ask for outside help is product damage. Once damage is no longer acceptable, you’ll need to find a solution. While quick fixes may work temporarily, larger issues could be uncovered. Technical resources will help focus on the ‘best solution’ to prevent product damage.
Documentation is part of the foundation for successful, consistent products. Technical resources allow for suppliers, manufactures and users to effectively collaborate and document these guidelines.
- Optimization (Efficiency, Cost Reduction, Consolidation, Initiating Change)
Consulting a technical resource will allow a broader scope of efficient solutions when trying to suggest and implement changes to the current process.
- New Product Development
“Let’s do it like we did with the last product” is an answer to many questions when dealing with new products. That mentality generally causes adverse effects further down the product life cycle. Legacy design issues are one of the most difficult to realize. Each new product should receive individual attention.
- Multi Team approach: Guru, Specialist with Unbiased Problem Solving
Management seems to listen better when a guru is involved. Technical resources can help drive solutions to implementation.
