Project overview

Project Overview

  • Technical practicality and economic feasibility of the proposed project has been proven.

  • Implement the previous research entitled “Automated Assessment of a Critical Food Processing Variable”.

  • Development of the decision model programming for controlling oven belt speed.

  • Development of the data gathering/keeping to support decision model program.


Project overview1

Project Overview

  • Development of diagnostics to identify procedural problems and provide solutions for correcting error.

  • Automated system must handle harsh environment of USDA regulated food processing plant.

  • Automated system should allow for greater production, improve labor costs, provide better data management, and allow for greater system control


Engineering development phase i

ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT( phase I )

  • Accurate electronic temperature collection/transmission

  • Data management for record keeping and system control

  • Decision model for oven conveyor speed which affects internal temperature

  • Conversion of application development from AML/2 to V+ language


Engineering development phase i1

Engineering development( phase i )

  • Specialized end effectors.

  • Self adjusting temperature probing fixture.

  • Recovery techniques which may or may not require human attendant.

  • Insuring sanitation procedures.

  • Develop attendant training.

  • Defining maintenance procedures.


Installation phase ii

Installation( phase ii )

  • Purchase of a machined-vision robotic arm and other equipment/supplies

  • Preparation of the physical site in the plant to include safety, sensors, interlocks and utilities

  • Validate programming of partial system in a laboratory setting before installation


Installation phase ii1

Installation( phase ii )

  • Training human attendant and maintenance personnel.

  • Consultation for installation process.

  • Assist in validation of process to meet USDA regulations.
