Starting mid-2008, Roche introduces a new global packaging design for prescription medicines. This will meet requirements and expectations of health authorities, medical professionals and patients worldwide. The new packaging allows quick and easy identification of the medicine and dosage strength. one product colour specific dosage colour icon of pharmaceutical form dosage colour is repeated How was the design selected? Roche sought feedback from medical professionals and health authorities and reviewed possible design options with more than 700 doctors, pharmacists, nurses and patients worldwide. There was clear support for the selected new design and respondents particularly highlighted that it was easy to recognise. What are the new features? The new packaging design includes d • istinct product and dosage colours for quick identification c • olour banding visible from three sides p • lunger rods and flip-off caps in dosage colours The design is in line with recent regulatory labelling guidelines and industry best practices. There will be no changes in pack dimensions and text. How will the design be implemented? The new packs will be phased in for Roche prescription medicines between mid-2008 and 2010 (approx.). C • ellCept, Copegus, Pegasys and Xeloda will be the first medicines to feature the new packaging design (some country-specific exceptions) T • he remaining medicines will change over the coming months Packs in the old design will not be replaced and can be used until expiry. Please contact your local Roche Office for country-specific details. F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd 4070 Basel Switzerland www.roche.com © 2008
Consumer product packaging designers are faced with conflicting requirements throughout the development process. Good pack aesthetics are vital for the success of the product, whilst unit costs must be minimized and suitability for stacking and transportation maintained. This paper describes, by example, how design optimization technology can be used to enhance the design process. It is demonstrated that the technology can be employed to provide clear design information for the pack designers, facilitating definition of an attractive shape incorporating features to meet the structural and manufacturing requirements whilst minimizing cost. Consumer product packaging designers are faced with conflicting requirements throughout the development process. Good pack aesthetics are vital for the success of the product, whilst unit costs must be minimized and suitability for stacking and transportation maintained. A significant improvement in the design process can be gained if design information can be clearly communicated to the product designers early in the design process. This paper describes how design optimization and advanced CAE can be used to deliver this. The resulting design process facilitates the early definition of an attractive pack shape incorporating features which will meet the structural and cost requirements. The design optimization process requires input in the form of a series of alternative shapes for the pack,...
Ksenia Polyakova Packaging design as a Marketing tool and Desire to purchase, 72 pages, 2 appendices Saimaa University of Applied Science Faculty of Business Administration, Lappeenranta Degree Programme in International Business Bachelor’s Thesis 2013 Instructor: Mr. Riku Hytönen Senior Lecturer, Saimaa University of Applied Sciences The purpose of the study was to examine the consumer perception on different design elements of a milk package and to provide essential information for the companies about the consumer attraction and importance of design attributes from the consumer point of view. The theoretical framework was based on the secondary data (articles and books) and included core concepts of packaging, packaging design, consumer behavior, consumer perception, and consumer attraction. The mixed method was selected for acquiring and analyzing the research results. Quantitative data was collected from 30 questionnaire responses and was analyzed with the computer program Excel. Qualitative data was obtained from two interviews conducted with the companies, Valio Ltd and Tetra Pak Ltd. The results of the study revealed the importance of packaging design in consumer buying behavior. By examining the consumer perception, it was found out that packaging design elements such as graphics, color, and product information play a key role in decision making and ensure consumer’s attention. Based on the findings, it was defined that successful milk packaging design could be created by the cooperation between the consumer and the company. Further research could investigate other product packages’ design elements.
CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL: FRONT PORCH DIGITAL’S RAPID APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT Front Porch Digital, Inc. is a world leader in digital asset workflow management serving global leaders in the entertainment industry. Front Porch Digital recently integrated Stretchr into its application development processes. “Stretchr has fundamentally changed the way we approach data systems development. Today’s data comes in so many shapes and sizes and is always changing, requiring you to spend a huge amount of time designing and editing schemas in traditional databases or developing expertise in NoSQL technology. With Stretchr all of that time and complexity goes away. You simply acquire the data, from any source and in any form. Stretchr then organizes the data for you based on how your users consume it – it couldn’t be simpler. Our first integration with Stretchr took an afternoon, and was effectively the insertion of one line of code into our existing application. So happy are we with the way Stretchr works and performs that we are tightly integrating our newest products with Stretchr, cutting development times significantly”.

Why do the Islamic fundamentalists in general—and followers of al Qaeda in particular—resort to terrorist tactics against Americans and other Westerners around the globe? This question has haunted Americans since 9/11 and prompted a host of antiterrorist policies throughout the world. Much has been written and spoken on the subject, and more will be written and spoken in the years ahead. Political geography offers a frame of reference to learn about al Qaeda and other militant Islamic groups and their anti-West, anti–U.S. posture. To explore the point of view propounded by Osama bin Laden and others, this case study uses the ﬁve levels of analysis introduced in chapter three, examined here from a geopolitical perspective. The ﬁve levels of analysis are the: 1) international system, 2) regional, 3) state, 4) substate (tribal groups), and 5) individual. INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM LEVEL From the international system perspective, consider the following historical context of al Qaeda’s militant Islam. Militant Islamic fundamentalists and followers of Islam are heirs to one of the great civilizations of the world. While...
This project came about when trying to make a low cost autonomous robot for use in education. The idea being that students would be able to identify with the Xbox controller and enjoy hacking it into something far more interesting! The Concept: This was a concept to make a low cost autonomous programmable robot for education using low cost every day things that the students could identify with – ie. The Xbox Controller. There are of course several existing product in this market most notably the Lego NXT and the Vex Systems. Both of these allow users to build and program autonomous robots, but there are two key differences, 1) On the XBugBot the programming and the processor are not separate! 2) The price! The XBugBot can be build for around 1/10th of the cost of the competing products! The humble Xbox Controller. What is the Xbox controller? Well once connected to the PC it becomes a low cost wireless DAQ (Data Acquisition System), it has several digital inputs (Buttons) and several analogue inputs (Joy Sticks etc.), plus two motor control outputs (Vibration Motors). What can it become? - Meet XBugBot: Hack your Xbox Controller and add a couple of wheels and sensors and you get an XBugBot! How is it Controlled? Using the FlowStone graphical programming language from DSPRobotics: (www.dsprobotics.com ) FlowStone is an awesome teaching tool for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) as is graphical so students can easily relate and understand it. Also the Xbox Controller is already pre-programmed into FlowStone so you can just use the Xbox Module and start programming your Bot. Programming and Processor:...
