The objective of VINISERV is to develop web services for European wine growers. The portal to be developed in the frame of the project will include applications in the area of quality (tools for the implementation and management of quality standards); HACCP (tools for implementation and management of HACCP system); vineyard management (disease prediction, decision support application for fertilisation and irrigation) and cellar management (prediction of the stopping of alcoholic fermentation, decision support application for blends, equipment and service management).
Automatic connections between the user database and the applications will be created. Automatic data acquisition from vineyard and winery equipment will also be developed. The development is based on the completion of seven logical phases: During the first phase, information about user requirements will be collected. It will be used to write the specifications of the portal and of its components. During the second phase, the architecture of the system will be designed. A generic model of data and application integration will be determined.
The hardware and software configuration will be identified. The third phase will consist in developing the system components. The development of each module will be realised at the same time by the responsible partners: the quality, traceability module will be developed by VIF and LGI, the HACCP module will be developed by Casals, ITV and AINIA, the vineyard management module will be developed by DCA and ADM and the cellar management module will be developed by ITV, LVWO and Liquosystems.
The modules will be then integrated and tested with a restricted number of users. The complete system will be made accessible to users from France, Germany, Italy and Spain in order to validate it. The two last work packages concern the dissemination and marketing strategy and the management of the project.
