HAM BrAIn™ is an Artificial Intelligence software to model, optimize and control the dry-cured ham production process automatically. The software uses statistical process data determined piece by piece by the HAM Inspector II Magnetic Induction scanner. The control strategy is based on the measurement of weight and fat at reception and on the measurement of weight losses and salt after the salting stage. The process is carried out in four phases:
- Phase I (Characterization): Characterization of the production process. Determination of weight, fat, losses and salt.
- Phase II (Salt Objective): Definition of the % of objective salt and the total number of salting groups.
- Phase III (Classification): HAM BrAIn™ optimizes classification to meet the salt target with minimal dispersion.
- Phase IV (Feedback): HAM BrAIn™ continues to learn from the process to continuously readjust itself.
