February 18, 2002 - The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved a new technical report, CGATS TR 011, Graphic Technology - Package Development Workflow - Design Concept Through Approved Production File, developed by the Committee for Graphic Arts Technologies Standards (CGATS).
The report serves as a reference model for developing workflow procedures in the packaging development process from design to final production file. It recommends roles and responsibilities of participants, provides default specifications for the information and materials exchange at each step of the workflow and identifies guidelines and standards that can be used to further define required parameters.
