Project description

Mechanistic models of pharmaceutical processes are required to predict and control the continuous production of tablets based on real-time measurements and adjustment of significant process variables. The development of these models will adopt a step-wise approach. In this project the focus will be the modelling of a full continuous from-powder-to-tablet manufacturing line
