Shelf Life Prediction
Client wanted a capability to predict the degradation of a variety of items in shelf-storage configurations.
The client also needed to predict life improvement/degradation with alterations in packaging configurations.
- Develop a conceptual framework to include the aging of packaging as a well as the contents.
- Include in the framework, interaction effects between packaging and contents.
- Design and perform accelerated aging protocols.
- Perform comprehensive data analysis to develop a capability to predict degradation kinetics coupling Arrhenius and empirical components.
