Tenth Anniversary of the Plastics Color Formulation Tool

William Cheetham

Since 1994 GE Plastics has employed a case-based reasoning tool that determines color formulas which match requested colors. This tool, called FormTool, has saved GE millions of dollars in productivity and material (i.e. colorant) costs. The technology developed in FormTool has been used to create an on-line color selection tool for our customers called ColorXpress Select. A customer innovation center has been developed around the FormTool software.
