AI-based Low Cost Digitalisation of Yogurt Production
Process Analytical Technology (PAT) is a system for designing, analysing and controlling processes through measurements of critical process parameters and quality attributes of raw and processed materials to improve product quality, increase efficiency and reduce costs. PAT has effectively been employed in high margin industries.
YOGUSENSE aims to capitalise on the capabilities of soft sensing to address these problems and mainstream the application of PAT among small and medium-sized food producers by demonstrating in a fermentation-based process the commercial feasibility as well as the economic and environmental benefits of a PAT platform, fusing data from sensors, analysers etc. to create optimisation models for in-process and real-time quality control.
