Keywords:   X – ray sensor, Image analysis, surface profile mapping, technical inheritance, feed-back and feed-forward technique, technical performance models and experimental plan

The primary objectives of this work are aimed a improving the health and welfare of beef cattle as well as designs of emerging techniques and technologies. The X ray sensor technique is used to measure a variety of flow rates, growth rate, the deformation of internal structures and other factors. The technical inheritance linear programming models and algorithms, using feed-back and feed-forward techniques as well as programs to calculate effect on cost, work rate or profit of a large number of factors in a range of operational research models have been developed to enhance effective predictions, controls and designs.
