This is not a very technical answer but this is how i have done it in the past. Simply produce the product as normal, do the inital testing, pH, aw, salinity, micros, or whatever ur normal SOP is and continue to do this either daily, weekly, etc and record all of the physical characteristics as well (browning, moisture loss, etc).
Do several different productions so that u have more than one shelf life test.

Quick net search:

Chilled Foods: A Comprehensive Guide

Understanding and Measuring the Shelf Life of Food

Handbook of Frozen Food Products and Packaging

Cooling Technology in the Food Industry

Vegetable Procesing

Examples illustrating the fallacy of relying heavily on test kitchen samples for reliable shelf life data.

Hope they can be useful.

Cheers!
