Product quality estimation method and system
This software has a quantitative procedure for managing the risks of food spoilage and food safety based on the biology of microbial growth.
When the Food Quality Systems Management method is linked to a database it becomes an important tool for continuous improvement in food management by providing information on how the probability distribution of microbial population size changes under various plant procedures. This information can be used both for monitoring through standard QA methods and for designing optimal QA in a plant.
This invention relates to a system and method for estimating the quality of a product. In particular the present invention may be used to estimate the quality of a product after the expiry of a period of time, or at a future time e.g. it could be used to estimate product lifetime for perishable products (in particular raw food products).
