TRACOD – Model-based Tracking of Cod and Other Fish Value Chain for Consumer Confidence Boosting and Food Engineers Education

We propose to use model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and conceptual modeling for two purposes: model the function, structure, and behavior of the entire “farm-to-fork” food value chain, ultimately enabling real-time view of the physical objects and processes along the food chain at increasing levels of detail through their digital twins, as reported by sensors in key chain locations
