Abstract

This paper presents the evaluation of a method supporting the integration of packaging development into product development through the use of an assessment framework for methodologies under development. While the evaluation of the integration method itself is critical for its further development the main objective is to use this evaluation as a further testing of the assessment framework. The assessment framework has only been tested once in its current version and replications are needed. The results of the testing of the support method indicate that it has high consistency but should be further developed with regards to simplicity of use, and overall attractiveness. About the framework, only minor changes were needed to assess the support method. The testing also shows that the framework can also be used for the assessment of methods, not only methodologies.
