Challenges

The packaging industry is challenged to reduce material consumption while increasing package strength; improve product performance for filling and conveying; accelerate design cycles while reducing cost; and improving the environmental sustainability for everything they manufacture. Virtual prototyping is emerging as a key strategic initiative within successful packaging companies to meet these challenges and improve competitiveness.

MSC.Software provides modeling and analysis software and services that enable packaging engineers to quickly and accurately run comprehensive virtual tests to optimize package designs, filling and conveying processes, and even simulate shipping and shelving.
