Strategies for Formulations Development
Strategies for Formulations Development: A Step-by-Step Guide Using JMP®
By Ronald Snee and Roger Hoerl
Anticipated publication date: Third quarter 2016

This book is based on real life practical experience to help scientists engaged in formulation work to develop formulation strategies that will speed up the formulation process. This book is unique in that it tells formulation scientists what they need to know to successfully conduct formulation studies, not what is nice to know. Learn to develop screening experiments to identify those ingredients/components that are most important to the performance of the formulation. Optimize quality and performance of product formulations. Design and analyze formulation studies that involve both formulation variables and process variables using methods that reduce the required experimentation by 50%. With this book, the reader will be able to take advantage of the use of computer generated experiment designs when the classical design will not work given the physical and economic constraints of the given experiential environmental.
