To reduce the weight in transportation, Pladur has introduced new packing blocks made of extruded polystyrene foam (XPS URSA). However, the process is facing issues as packing blocks sometime fall down and last plasterboard is damaged.
Pladur is willing to find a solution to be able to pack the stack using the wooden and plastic packing blocks and fix the current issues. Any creative solution is welcome and may vary from using an efficient adhesive or propose a process change, although investment should be minimal.
The evaluation criteria that will be used to assess your contributions are:
- The proposed solution solves the issue
- Minimum or no required investment
- Feasibility evidence
The winner will be awarded with a 4.000 € cash prize and the second finalist will be awarded with a 1.000 € cash prize.
This is a real manufacturing challenge! You can see the packing process in the video that comes attached with the challenge.
