Computational architecture of OTAG project

Abstract : Beef cattle is a product of great importance for the economy of countries like Brazil, one of the major producer and exporter in the world. However, to maintain itself on this important economic position, Brazil needs constantly to improve its production systems as well to invest in aspects related to sanitary control, according to the requirements of the consuming market like the European Community. The goal of OTAG (Operational Management and Geodecisional Prototype to Track and Trace Agricultural Production) project is to provide conditions to know the relative risks concerning to the bovine traceability, in the context of Southern Cone Countries and the EU policies. The project is based on the existing knowledge in Europe and Canada concerning to information systems and geodecisional tools, as well to the interaction among experts and user groups from South Cone, Canada and Europe. The goal of this project was to prove the feasibility of an Information system tracing a bovine all along its live. For what, an electronic devices has been conceived for acquiring the animal geolocation in the herd. This information is associated to data about farm management, such as feeding and production systems in use. This paper presents the characteristics, tools and phases related to the development of the information system prototype for the OTAG project, which has capacity to provide support for animal geolocation data, production system data, and data analysis using business intelligence technologies.
