Better IT systems provide better control
Our proposal within this Living Lab is the development of an advanced IT system for the control and optimization of the productive process linked to breaded chicken products. This integral IT tool will merge three main modules:
- A chemometric model based on portable NIR technology (Near Infrared Spectroscopy) for the characterization of raw material.
- In a similar way, a NIR chemometric model for the non-destructive analysis of final product.
- An intelligent data analysis tool for the monitoring and optimization of a key intermediate step.
All three components will be integrated in a way that will optimize the reduction of the current food losses generated in the target process.
Partners & objective
, Food Technology Centre, Aldelís
(a large Enterprise producing poultry processed products).
The main objective of this Living Lab is to validate all three IT developed tools in the production facilities provided by Aldelís, proving the upscaling of TRL levels for proposed solutions, starting from TRL5 to a final TRL7.
Who will benefit?
Main benefit will be for Food processing companies. They will get a relevant reduction of current food losses. Key associated KPI were described above. Other positive impacts are expected from this implementation as the reduction of other inputs, as raw material, ingredients or energy, or the diminution of operators for the supervision of the line.
We expect the first results for month 24, after the first implementation round
