Seminar on product development and simulation 1/2 2021

Digital Product Development and Simulation

Welcome to a SIG-PM seminar focusing on product development and simulation hosted by Tetra Pak

Tetra Pak is a world leader in process and packaging solutions for food. In close collaboration with customers and suppliers, we provide safe, innovative and environmentally friendly products that reach hundreds of millions of people in more than 160 countries every day. Tetra Pak has over 24,000 employees worldwide and attaches great importance to responsible leadership and sustainable corporate strategies.

Tetra Pak are specialists in complete solutions for processing, packaging and distributing food products. The solutions are specifically developed to manage resources as much as possible. Dairy products, beverages, ice cream, cheese, food, vegetables and animal feed are examples of products that can be prepared or packaged at their process and packaging lines. Tetra Pak focuses on keeping all consumption of raw materials and energy to a minimum during both the manufacturing process and distribution. The process solutions are also designed to treat the products carefully.

In this seminar, Tetra Pak talks about her work with simulation-driven product development via 4 lectures, as well as a tour.

In addition to this, Tetra Pak’s operations are framed by a presentation on GKN Aerospace and Scania’s challenges in the area, and a report on product development challenges for 2040 is presented.
