  • The presentation will cover methods to use NX6 along with a packaging optimization program (POP) to drive more efficient use of packaging in shipping containers. Bottles are used as an example, but can easily apply to any consumer product or shippable good. The POP is a separate space fitting program which outputs a range of optimum dimensions, however the POP does not really know the true volume of the enclosed shape. This is where NX6 comes in: the range of dimensions are entered into expressions to drive each one to exact target volume. Some results work better than others, and one can make the best choice based on aesthetics and manufacturing concerns. The presentation will show some approaches both manual & automated and will conclude with some Q & A time to discuss and share how others may have solved similar issues.

  • Developing Sustainable Packaging using NX John Manderfield Director of Creative Design Consolidated Container Company [email_address]
  • Agenda
    • Welcome
    • Intro to Consolidated Container
    • Role of Shipping Containers
    • Use of Package Optimization Program (POP) to optimize shipping container
    • Case Study: Trigger Sprayer
      • Customer wants new trigger bottle
      • Designed it: does not fit in box
      • Went to POP - developed range of sizes
      • Went back to NX to resize numerous parts to pack out efficiently
  • Agenda
    • NX Tools Used
      • Sketches, Parameters, Expressions
      • Measure Bodies:
        • Associative: remembers volume check
        • Sticky Call-out: shows on screen
      • True Shading
    • NX Tools We Want To Get To
      • Goal Seek: drive height to reach target internal volume
      • UDF: would this help?
      • Reuse Library: common sprayer to all shapes
    • NX Modules To Consider
      • Assemblies
      • Knowledge Fusion: extra cost?
    • Tips & Tricks from Audience?
    • Questions & Answer Session
  • What is “Sustainable” Packaging?
      • Packaging over its life cycle that:
        • Meets society’s needs for performance and quality of life (social)
        • Minimizes life cycle environmental impacts (environmental)
        • Is efficient in how it uses resources (environmental)
        • Is cost effective (economic)
        • Is safe, meets all regulatory requirements and is easy to use (environmental and social)
        • Does not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their needs (economic, environmental and social)

  • How Does Consolidated Container Contribute?
    • Rigid Packaging
    • Extrusion Blow Molding
  • My Role
    • Director of Creative Design
    • Industrial Design
    • Subject Matter Expert
    • PLM World User Group (past chair)
    • Drive Innovation
    • Recognize Trends…
    • … drive efficient packaging using POP
  • Thinking…Inside the Box
  • Recognizing a Need for Efficiency
    • CCC makes Bottles
    • Shipped to Filler (empty)
    • Filled, Capped, Labeled
    • Boxed in shipping cartons
    • Stacked on pallets
    • Placed inside trailers/containers
    • Shipped to store/DC
    • Placed on store shelf
  • Packaging Optimization Program (POP) Approach
    • TOPS from Tops Engineering
    • Analyzes dimensions of shapes – space fits into other shapes
    • Optimizes for shipping purposes
  • New 22oz Trigger Design Optimized with POP
    • Digital Rendering Submitted to Customer
    • Marketing is OK with it
    • Consumer Focus Group loves it
    • Operations hates it
      • no one asked him
      • Incorrect capacity
      • Does not fit in box
      • Wants a 32oz size as well
  • Using POP to optimize the design
  • POP Inputs: Bottle & ShipCase
    • Analyze with POP
  • POP Inputs: Pallet
  • POP Solution: Graphics
  • POP Solution: Data
  • POP Solution
    • So…what is all this telling me?
    • I just want to get the bottles into the box!
    • The Bottle “fits”… but could fit better
  • Sustainable Design Goal Setting
    • VERSATILE CASE: make two sizes fit same box
    • VOLUME GOAL: 22oz AND 32oz
    • CASE GOAL: Increase Cases

  • Sustainable Design Goal Setting Increase Width 3.2 to 3.65” Makes bottle larger Increase Height up to 1” Makes bottle larger Decrease Depth 2.44 to 2.15” Makes bottle smaller
  • POP Approach - Limitations
    • POP does not understand complex geometry of the part inside the carton
      • Example: round bottles do not maximize cube of box
    • NX can’t read POP data directly (manual reentry)
    • POP can’t read NX data
