The packaging for such devices and products will focus on the protective and utility functions to deal with the shock & vibration, temperature & humidity extremes, condensation, electrostatic discharge, and similar hazards of the distribution environment. Testing for such packages follows the functions as described below.
By subjecting your product/package system to above suggested test procedures, or others (ie, ASTM D4169 or the appropriate ISTA procedure), you will quickly determine the ability of the package system to perform its intended functions in the anticipated distribution environment. Minor adjustments, major changes, or complete system overhaul can normally be accomplished quickly and easily at this point, prior to disappointing your customer with a damaged product upon delivery. No one's job in the Corporation is finished until your customer has a quality product and a satisfied look. This very simple concept is what we call quality delivered.
When considering a package test such as suggested above, remember that your package system will always be tested. The distribution environment will make sure of that. The only question to be answered is "who sees the results first, you or your customer?" A brief and cost effective package system evaluation prior to initial shipment is always a good policy regardless of your product.
