Abstract [en]

This project contains method development of Packaging Scorecard. The method where applied in two parallel case studies. Product development was implemented and evaluation of all performed tasks where performed. The aim was to simplify the evaluation of a packaging performance in a distribution chain. Two parallel qualitative case studies where applied to verify the methodology. The results from the cases where then evaluated and presented with additions to the methodology. The addition to the pre-existing model in this work is an additional expression, Packaging Performance Index (PPI), and a visual evaluation matrix. This matrix shows the need for improvement of the packaging stages at the various actors. This more detailed evaluation combined with the PPI is useful in the packaging development process. Innovative Packaging development is also added to the method and performed. Solutions that respond to the problems identified during the case studies were verified as another additional step in the method. This method is preferable if and when a few people with appropriate knowledge are available for interviews and the person that implements the method is a specialist. The difficulty with the method is the time consumption. The biggest problem is the processing of the data which is very inefficient. The data gathering is time consuming with long interviews and travel time. Another problem is the subjectivity in the data gathering. This method is useful to identify both general and specific problems and to find innovative solutions to the precise problems. The visual evaluation is functional to obtain a holistic perspective but it also shows details which is important in the packaging development. The method triggers the creativity and results in a wide input of solutions to any problem.
