FALLO Approach

Conditions that are important in making plastic products the success it has worldwide are summarized in Fig. 1.15. Ail designs, processes, and materials fit into this overall FALLO (Follow ALL Opportunities) approach flow chart that produces products meeting required performance and cost requirements.

Designers and processors, needing to produce qualified products at the lowest cost have used the basic concept of the FALLO approach. This approach makes one aware that many steps are involved to be successful, all of which must be coordinated and interrelated. It starts with die design that involves specifying the plastic and specifying the manufacturing process. The specific process (injection, extrusion, blow molding, thermoforming, and so forth) is an important part of the overall scheme.
