An innovative can filling system is presented. The system employs a set of representative models developed by off-line sensing of weight distribution and sectional variation functions and a set of measurable geometric features. An intelligent decision making system matches on-line measurements of object features to a corresponding model that has the necessary information for cutting the object. Optimal portion control is achieved by overlapping the fish at a variable separation and cutting at fixed intervals of blade separation. A numerical example illustrates that optimal overlapping can produce significant economic advantage.
