MetadataVis full innførsel
The objective of WP4 in iProcess project is to develop information management strategies to support decision making by the food industry making them more profitable and resource efficient. This report presents the results from process mapping conducted in the whitefish industry to analyse the flow of information and material between the fishing vessels and processors. Process maps are developed for a whitefish processor, a seagoing vessel and a coastal vessel using the Event-based Process Mode liing technique. This study provides several insights that are of great relevance for the industry. The most important findings are the lack of information exchange related to quality of fish between the fishing vessels and the processors as well as the lack of raw material inventory transparency between the processing plant locations for the same company. The results from this study will be used to develop data capture and information exchange strategies for the whitefish supply cha in.
