DIGITALIZATION

Workshop  on artificial intelligence in the wine sector

 

Last 19th we held the Digitization Day in the wine sector together with the INNOVI Cluster.

The aim was to introduce in the sector how digital technologies can help us in decision making to improve the competitiveness of companies. In the first intervention, Carles Gómara from ACCIÓ introduced us to different examples of using Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, Big Data, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence (IA) or 5G Connectivity.

In this sense he said that AI is a tool used to manage the huge amount of data that can already be captured from sensors, cameras or other means and of which we often do not know what use to give it. .

Jesus Cerquides of the CSIC explained how AI can help us in the value chain with different examples such as robotization in viticulture, big data in the decision-making in the cellar and different apps that help in the purchase of product.

Xavier Jofre of Mobile World Capital Barcelona began his presentation by exposing the potential of 5G: low latency-reaction time, high download speeds and the possibility of mass connection of devices. Thanks to these capabilities he showed us different examples, such as the assisted pruning of a nectarine field with a 5G connected robot in Albatárrec; remote machinery teleoperation or immersive tourism that could be applicable to wine tourism.

In the case of assisted pruning, he showed us that using smart glasses connected to a consultant can lead to significant cost savings. This technology could have other applications, such as in the field of machinery-assisted repair by the grower himself, with remote assistance of an expert mechanic.

The last three interventions were by members of the cluster.

The BeBrand and Covides told us about a low-cost sensing project for existing bottling lines to manage raw material stock and line speeds.

Facial recognition for managing people in the field was the project explained by Raw Data. The advantages of this system are ease of use and interconnection with other existing systems and tools.

Finally, AgroMappin presented different projects in which remote sensing plays a key role: both in predicting harvests and in managing the application of plant protection and fertilization.

10 Novémbre 2014-Cluster FEMAC visitait the Cluster Agroalimentario àNueva León, Mexico

Le Cluster Manager de FEMAC a visité le Cluster Agroalimentario de Nueva León, pendant de la tournée sur clusters organisée sous la 17e Cluster Conférence TCI à Monterrey.

L’influence régionale de haut niveau sur l’industrie agro-alimentaire, son secteur ( agriculture une production alimentaire ), la collaboration de tous les agents impliqués dans le développement du secteur, et l’équilibre entre concurrence et coopération, est notable que est le parfait environnement pour développer le Cluster Agroalimentaire. Le Cluster Agroalimentaire [http://www.clusteragroalim.org] est une organisation à but non lucratif intégré par l’académie et des agences du gouvernement. Il a commencé à fonctionner en 2009 et exploite cinq comités pour le moment.

Le Cluster Tour commençait par une visite à Griffith Laboratories, une entreprise qui a construit une réputation de qualité et de fiabilité avec leurs partenaires de la clientèle et l’innovation comme une fondation pour la différenciation et avec une curiosité mondiale de nouvelles opportunités. Un ingrédient important dans la tournée du cluster. Il avait finalisé avec une visite à SUCABRITO, une entreprise qui a l’exportation internationale et donne la meilleure qualité de moutons et de chèvres, certifiés sur TIF 505

MUSÉE TREPAT 100 ANÉES D’HISTOIRE

Au début du XXe siècle, de nouvelles entreprises ont commencé à produire les premières machines batteuses, ceci représentait la pépite de ce que le cluster de machines agricoles en Catalogne deviendrait plus tard.

L’usine J. Trepat est le témoin et l’une des protagonistes de la mécanisation agricole, grâce à l’importance qu’elle a tenue dans le procès de transformation et mécanisation de l’agriculture catalane et espagnole. Dans Cette vielle usine, où se fabriquait et commercialisait les emblématiques machines agricoles J. Trepat ; faucheuses, batteuses, lieuses, et tant d’autres. Durant les années 30, ils furent construites 13 des 19 bâtiments actuels; pourtant, l’entreprise était déjà en fonctionnement depuis 1914 dans de petits ateliers situés dans le village de Tàrrega.

Les machines Josep Trepat furent un véritable succès commercial et une révolution pour le travail agricole car les machines étaient adaptées aux besoins des agriculteurs, légères, maniables et à un prix accessible qui contribua à leurs popularités et finirent par transformer le travail et la vie de l’agriculture. La fabrique J. Trepat fût nommée productrice national en 1931

En cette année 2014, CALT TREPAT fête son 100ème anniversaire. Visitez-nous sur  http://www.museutrepat.cat

WEB_firaMollerussa2014

The workshop will began with the explanation of the 5 technological challenges of the cluster which involve the development of new technologies.

This will be followed by the presentation of each innovation development. BATSI, ILERCIM, and VIRKAR are the firms who have been working on it.

Afterwards we will move on a land plot, where the participants will be able to see the implementation of this technology in some equipment provided by the companies in the cluster, JUSCAFRESA, TALLERS GILI, VIGERM which had added those systems.

27th March 2014 – Specialized Training: Practical implementation of the 5S’s methodology

las 5s

5S is the name of a workplace organization method that uses a list of five Japanese words: seiri, seiton, seiso, seiketsu, and shitsuke. The list describes how to organize a work space for efficiency and effectiveness by identifying and storing the items used, maintaining the area and items, and sustaining the new order. The decision-making process usually comes from a dialogue about standardization, which builds understanding among employees of how they should do the work.

The participants will be able to learn this methodology on a one training day of 8 hours next 27th March
