Optimisaton techniques: a futuristic approach for formulating and processing of pharmaceuticals

2016 Indian Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biological Research  
Designing and formulating an ideal pharmaceutical product is a very tedious job for a formulator as it comprises of multiple objectives. The traditional method followed for years is not only expensive and time consuming but it also needs lot of effort to be put in and in spite of that at times it proves to be unfavourable and unpredictable too.The recent approach to optimise i.e. to achieve the best combination of product and process characteristics under the given conditions is by using Design

Nowadays there are various software available to carry out the optimisation of pharmaceutical products.
