Automating the Hindquarter boning process is seen as a useful portion of the fully automated lamb boning room.
Objective assessment of the performance of the previous Scott Hindquarter deboning development project identified that the key short coming was that the yield was less than the manual process.
The methodology of this project was to propose new technologies to address the yield demands and test the new technologies on a prototype development rig.
The yield results established on the development rig was worse than manual boning best practice and better than a manual boning poor practice, but reliability was traded off.
The project was unable to progress yield performance and reliability to a point that program refinement and overall process rate assessments could be made. The project objectives were judged as unlikely to be met and therefore the project was terminated.
