Accelerating Consumer Products Reformulation with Machine Learning

Nov 23, 2021

Consumer products need to be reformulated continually in order to adapt to new market forces, government regulations, and supply chain limitations. In some markets, sustainability initiatives and consumer demand for natural ingredients are forcing major reformulation efforts across entire product lines. These sweeping changes are creating an R&D and innovation bottleneck. Companies that are able…

Integrating Mixing Expert Knowledge Into Production System Design

Mar 23, 2020

Challenge A significant part of Procter and Gamble’s (P&G) manufacturing involves mixing fluids. P&G spends resources to design mixing systems that optimize this process. Many of the engineers responsible for designing production processes are not experts in mixing, but also do not need the complexity of a computational fluid dynamics tool like Virtual Mixing System…

Visualization and Automation Significantly Improves Fluids Properties Testing

Mar 23, 2020

CHALLENGE Rheology, the analysis of non-Newtonian fluid properties, conventionally requires cumbersome experimental setups with centrifuges and substantial quantities of test fluid. The technique of microrheology, pioneered at Harvard’s Experimental Soft Condensed Matter Group, consists of capturing the motion of micron-scale tracer particles in the test fluid through a microscope. The statistical analysis of the Brownian…

New Workflow Removes Weeks from Modeling and System Engineering and Design Process

Mar 23, 2020

A time consuming and tedious process for running virtual mixing experiments A significant part of Proctor and Gamble’s (P&G) manufacturing involves mixing fluids. P&G spends resources to design mixing systems that optimize this process. Manufacturing enough new tanks and impellers to physically experiment with all of the design parameters is much too expensive, so CAD…
