BUSINESS MODELS AND LEAN BUSINESS

Mobirise è un facile costruttore di siti Web: basta The issue of controlling and evaluating the decision making processes in Multi-Actor complex Systems (MACSs) is a well known challenge in the literature. The issue becomes more and more interesting when the actors are characterized by different backgrounds, introducing behavioural aspects to the complexity due to the inter-correlation between the actors themselves. In order to cope this issue, my research goes toward the integration between the business processes and models with the operational ones by Lean startup tools. This led to the definition of GUEST, a Lean Business methodology able to cope from the early definition of the idea up to the factual implementation, while reducing the time-to-market and increasing the co-creation level of the people involved ion the innovation process. The methodology was used in different environments, including food and beverage (Lavazza), automotive (FCA, IVECO), public companies (CIDIU), energy (Emerson Power), Parcel delivery (TNT, DHL, PonyZero).trascinare gli elementi del sito sulla tua pagina, aggiungere contenuti e modificarli in base alle tue esigenze.

SMART CITIES AND CITY LOGISTICS

The research focused on the integration of optimization procedures in the supply chain of freight transportation in urban areas, and ion Last Mile Logistics in particular. This is a major challenge, due to the peculiarities of the Last Mile Logistics and to the fact that different aspects (economical, environmental, social, behavioural) must be taken into account.

OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT AND COMBINATORIAL OPTIMIZATION

PACKING AND LOADING
New, fast and accurate lower bounds have been introduced for the Bin Packing problem. New approaches for the accommodation of items in two and three dimensions have been studied. By means of these new approaches, heuristic algorithms for the bin packing and container packing problems have been developed and tested, obtaining better results than the state of the art methods.

ROUTING AND FLEET MANAGEMENT
A new family of VRP problems, the Multi-Echelon VRP problems, has been introduced. For the 2-Echelon version of these problems, models, exact and heuristic methods have been developed, including math-heuristics, cluster-based heuristics, and several cut families.

STOCHASTIC PROBLEMS AND MANAGEMENT OF UNCERTAINTY.
New deterministic approximations of stochastic problems. Those approximations are able both to give an accurate bound of the stochastic objective function and to predict the optimal stochastic decisions. Definition of new stochastic problems for strategic and tactical decisions in supply chains and transportation systems.

POLITECNICO DI TORINO
PHD Soft Skills Course

The development of a business idea in terms of Business Development is a key activity for reaching your goals in terms of both research exploitation and industrial application. For this reasons, several methods was presented in the literature. Those methodologies are usually domain specific and have a significant overhead, limiting their usage in small and medium enterprises, startups and small research groups.
This course gives the basic knowledge id Lean Startup and Lean Management, as well as the tools to increase the efficacy of the team workflow. 

POLITECNICO DI TORINO
Master in Industrial Engineering

The course concerns
• the evolution of corporate organizational models, with a specific focus on multinational companies;
• the illustration of the framework of industrial relations in Italy, in Europe and other Countries;
• the ethic role of Companies and top management, the professional engineer and manager;
• the issues of management style and leadership, the basic principles and the evolution of strategy and the general methodology as described for the strategic management of organizations operating in the international markets and more generally in a competitive environment, whether manufacturers or service providers. 

POLITECNICO DI TORINO
Bachelor in Industrial Engineering

The aim of this course is to give the basic knowledge of the methods and algorithms for modeling and solving problems arising in complex systems management. In particular, at the end of the course, the students will be able to build a formal model of a management and production problem, solve it and present the results to a hypothetical stakeholder.

REACHING MY OFFICE

I am located in the DAUIN - Dipartimento di Automatica e Informatica (Department of Control and Computer Engineering), 4th floor, zone 4C. Once arrived in the main campus, directions are the following:
Reach the Dipartimento di Automatica e Informatica (see map)
The best way to come there is to take the stairs that are next to the GM Powertrain building (Google Streetmap View), on the west side of Corso Castelfidardo; for who is familiar with the Politecnico di Torino campus, use the same stairs that bring you to the LABINF lab.
Go up to the fourth floor
A courtesy phone is next to the door, with a list of available phone numbers. Please check that the door gives you access to the zone 4C (there is a big sign on the door).
