Progress of Work

UOA

  • Coordination and delivery of WP short term plan for s/w delivery.
  • Contribution to D6.2 deliverable [#658]
  • Coordinated period's meetings / teleconferences (WP620160707Telco, WP620160721Meeting)
  • Introduction of a proposal for integration of techno-economic with production models (to be implemented in September).

I2S

  1. Participation in the meetings with UOA and CITE.
  2. Contributed to the writing of the D6.2 Deliverable.
  3. Ongoing the integration with IS by both the web-app and the analysis algorithm in order to use user's Home (workspace) and connect to infrastructure database end-point. [Project Activities #1648, #3889 and #2236]
  4. Ongoing the implementation of the RESTful service and integration it with IS [Project Activity #4603]
  5. Setup a SmartGears Web Hosting Node (wHN) hosting the RESTful service for development purposes and use the service via its endpoint [Project Activities #4603, #1648]
  6. Implement the algorithms for KPIs estimation (FCR) by adding new methodologies (MARS). Ongoing the integration into Statistical Manager project. [Project Activity #3889]
  7. Ongoing the usage of the user’s assets (eg workspace files) by both the portal and the algorithm (Troubleshoot the usage of the Home Library API) [Project Activities #1648, #3889 and #2236]
  8. Estimation new KPIs (SFR, Mortality Rate, SGR) and publish the analysis algorithms into DataMiner Manager. [Project Activity #3889]
  9. Complete the implementation algorithms for KPIs estimation (FCR, SFR, Mortality Rate, SGR) by adding the MARS methodologies.
  10. Integration into DataMiner Manager. [Project Activity #3889]
  11. Launch the evaluation (testing) process of the whole service.
  12. Communicate with subcontractors and starting process to collect new data.

Plans for next month

Note: add any short term plans for the activity

UOA

I2S

  • Complete the integration with IS by both the web-app and the analysis algorithm in order to use user's Home (workspace) and connect to infrastructure database end-point
  • Implement and improve the algorithms for KPIs estimation (FCR, SFR) by adding new methodologies (eg. MARS, Boosting GAMs)
  • Publish the analysis algorithm into Statistical Manager
  • Continue the evaluation (testing) process of the whole service and correct potential bugs. Preparation for the pre-release.
  • Collect data from aquaculture companies.

Risks

Note: identify any new, rising or diminishing risks

T6.2 Strategic Investment analysis and Scientific Planning/Alerting VRE

Note: To be completed by Task Leader

Progress of work

UOA

  • Various improvements and testing of the Logical Layer Broker component in a distributed configuration of the Geoanalytics platform).
  • Progress in the design the Logical Layer Manager update operation flow and continued in the beginning stages of its implementation.
  • Progressed in specializing the technical objectives of the ICRE8-BB MoU with ICRE8's representatives.

CITE

  • implemented the data access scheme of the Geoanalytics platform for WMS requests, leveraging the high-performance back end of the platform.
  • implemented Geopolis' new internal authorization model that will allow mapping to BlueBRIDGE entities (VREs => Tenants)
  • concluded the specification gathering and design of a WMS importer plugin.
  • started the refactoring of Geopolis project-management functionality to meet BlueBRIDGE's requirements (geonetworks integration, search etc).
  • continued the development of Geopolis' front-end, where projects are being in progress of being incorporated.
  • evolution of technoeconomic model with the introduction of "submodels" or "reference sizing", in an attempt to address the scarcity of data in the financial sector. The solutions' feasibility will be validated in next period with feedback from aquafarm SMEs (via I2S).
