Better IT systems provide better control
Our goal within this Living Lab is the development of an advanced IT system for the control and optimisation of the production process of 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.
- A NIR chemometric model for the non-destructive analysis of final product.
- An intelligent data analysis tool for the monitoring and optimisation 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 company producing poultry processed products).
The main objective of this Living Lab is to test and validate the three developed IT tools in the production facilities of Aldelís.
Who will benefit?
The main benefit here is for food processing companies. They will get a relevant reduction of current food losses. Other expected positive impacts are the reduction of other inputs, such as raw material, ingredients or energy, or the diminution of operators for supervision of the line.
We expect the first results at the beginning of 2024 after the first implementation round.
