Description

A current challenge in the food industry is to improve both flexibility and productivity in the production and supply chain. In Integrated Modelling of Food Production Chains, generic, robust models suitable for industrial use will be researched and developed in a long-term collaboration with a consortium of industry partners. The models are primarily developed as tools for improving productivity and flexibility in addition to reduce waste in the food production chain. Focus will be entirely on the production line and individual unit operations e.g. cooking, baking, frying, chilling and freezing, within the factory and abandon from integrating out-of factory logistics, as this appears not to be an urgent need for the involved industrial partners.
The overall objective of the project is to develop a cross-disciplinary framework for studying and developing process optimization in relation to the food production industry. It requires an interdisciplinary approach combining food science, food engineering, industrial statistics, management and industrial production knowledge. The objective is to develop and validate through experiments robust models, which are easy to use in industry and which describe important processes. The important processes will be identified through comprehensive production analysis.
A parallel objective is to encourage production managers in the Danish food industry to systematically apply such models, whether existing or developed in this project, for improving productivity and flexibility in addition to reduce waste.
The output of the project will be multifaceted and cover both scientific and innovative issues.
• Exploring the need for data / information.
• Describing and discussing tools and techniques for the improvement of productivity and flexibility in addition to reduce waste.
• Generic, robust models and methods suitable for industrial use will be researched and developed.
