In this framework the interaction between the parties in the project will also be described.

The project is a collaborative venture between the Department of Mathematical Modelling at Technical University of Denmark and the engineering consultancy firm, PH-Consult. It is funded equally by the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences and PH-Consult.

First the company and the Ph.D. project is introduced, followed by a description of the technological competence around these two objects. Then the organisation of knowledge production is discussed along with marketing and a product life cycle analysis. After the description of these concepts, the industrial relevance of the scientific results obtained is analysed.
