Nordic (Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland) and Baltic Region (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania)
for treeDiM, France.



treeDiM PLMPack - Logo

PLMPack is a collaborative Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)
for optimization and eco-design packaging systems.

    Software components:

    • Picador, CAD software for 2D/3D structural design of cardboard packaging and POS

    • PLMPackLib, a set of libraries of parametric packaging models

    • PLMStackBuilder, for palletizing, case packing, and truck loading optimization

    • PLMPackStress, calculation of packing and stacking resistance

    Each software component can be used independently,
    but their association within the platform allows to search through the choice of
    materials, types of packaging (conditioning or transport), and stacking optimization
    (packing, palletizing, truck loading) an optimized solution of the packaging system
    and automatically get a report of eco-design with all the technical documents
    (packaging drawings, packing, palletizing, loading document, bill of material,... ).


    This platform provides software tools to design the entire packaging system:

    • choice and resize of primary and secondary packaging with PLMPackLib,
      the parametric library of standards,

    • optimization of packing, palletizing and loading truck with PLMStackBuilder,
      the optimization software combination.

    • choice of material with PLMPackStress for calculating resistance.

    The PLMPack platform is developed in Open Source to allow the widest possible
    dissemination and create a community of contributors to
    software development and content enrichment.




treeDiM PLMPackLib - Logo

PackLib is a set of dynamic libraries of
resizing packaging standards (ECMA, FEFCO) or creatives models

    PackLib is a software for management of model libraries;
    parametric models of packaging and cardboard displays.

    PackLib is fully a integrated module in Picador,
    the software for packaging design, packaging, display, POS ...


Use case

treeDiM PLMPackLib - Use Case - Picture

    PLMPackLib allows consulting a list of parametric packaging plans
    (essentially carton and corrugated, ECMA, FEFCO, POS).
    Optimization of layout, packing and palettization is provided for each parametric model.
    It is written in C# (.NET 4.0), and uses SQLite as database.

treeDiM PMLStackBuilder - Packaging, Palletization, Truckload - Picture

StackBuilder is a palettization software to manage
packing, palettization, and truck load of homogeneous case stacking

    StackBuilder is a fully integrated module in Picador,
    the software for packaging design, packaging, display, POS ...

    StackBuilder is free software, to design and optimize
    • the packing (articles per case),
    • palletizing (boxes per pallet), and
    • shipping items (pallets per truck)

    StackBuilder is developed as open source to allow the widest possible dissemination and
    to create a community of contributors for software development or enrichment of content.

treeDiM Picador - PLMStackBuilder Pallet Loading - Picture

    StackBuilder helps to solve 3 problems:

    • palletization: given a case and a pallet, find the best layout to stack the case,

    • case filling: given a set of cases, find the best case and the best way to fill it,

    • optimal case search: given a box, a number of box per case and a pallet type,
      find the optimal case layout and dimensions.

    For the moment, PackBuilder builds solutions using homogeneous packaging layers
    in which the vertical axis remains the same.
    It can not provide solutions in which a "turned" case is used to fill remaining space.


    StackBuilder can not handle heterogeneous problems such as:

    • palletizing with different types of cases,
    • producing solutions that do not rely on layers

    StackBuilder is a simple to learn,
    allowing you to move forward with a global vision of the supply chain of your packaging.

    the software for packaging design, packaging, display, POS ...

    StackBuilder brings many new features, such as
    packing flat cartons, adding corners, pallet cover, protective film.
    The user interface has also been redesigned to provide better interactivity.
