The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) has led an Innovate UK project aiming to support the better implementation of computer models across manufacturing processes.
The two-year Models for the Manufacturing of Particulate Process (Models MPP) project focused on establishing a generic framework and core capability to improve industrial productivity.
As part of the drive to provide more leverage and integration of the wealth of formulations expertise in the UK, the £700,000 project, funded by Innovate UK as part of CPI’s National Formulation Centre Strategic Projects Programme, has facilitated the translation of the UK’s world-leading expertise in computational modelling and simulation for the manufacturing of particulate processes.
CPI was part of a highly-effective consortium that worked on the project, with key industrial contributions from Astra Zeneca, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble and Johnson Matthey, and SMEs including EDEM Simulations and Process Systems Enterprise (PSE).
