Procter & Gamble is one of the largest consumer products companies in the world. A common misperception is that "development of consumer products is not challenging for scientists or engineers" and that "all you need is good marketing". However, a key part of P&G´s success model is to innovate with superior technology and R&D is a key driver of innovation.
This presentation gives some insights into the world of research and development and the science behind everyday products at P&G. A range of examples will be provided including how we are applying Modeling & Simulation in our everyday work.
