Abstract in another language

The increasing number of variants in plastic packaging market leads to problems especially for small enterprises (SEs). With increasing customer needs, like individualized products, small lot sizes and short product life cycles, it becomes necessary to work more efficient and effective, especially across enterprise borders. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) enables companies to handle complexity and variants in their product development process. Therefore, this established PLM-approach is extended in its usage for SEs and as an operational platform between specialized companies, so called “works-flow”.
In prevalent approach expert enterprises for each part of the value chain for plastic packaging hollows have established and work at new products separately. Results of this traditional way are delays, high costs and low efficiency. Therefore, this interrupted value chain is closed and the expert enterprises are brought together. This is the goal of "works-flow", a disruptive approach for an integrated and digital value chain network. To solve the leading problems there are four main issues. Reducing the interface problems by using an integrated and digital product model for the whole value chain network. Establishing base knowledge for the process - design, construction, production - to build individual packaging hollows. Developing a modularized systematic for the product and its toolset based upon a predesigned parametric CAD model. Reducing the ramp up time for the production by handling process data knowledge and automatic processes for the construction of tool-sets. Therefore, connecting and enabling the separated SEs for design, tooling and production to an integrated operational process chain leads to cost reduction in the whole process chain, a shorter Time-to-market and an earlier Start-of-production. Furthermore, it enables a non-before achieved process quality and process stability. The initial usage of the “works-flow”-approach leaded to a reduction in the Time-to-market up to 60% and a higher product quality.
