Lab Digital Industry

Vision and Objectives

The laboratory of digital Industry of the Foundation research organization GTechnology addresses the complex and articulated range of organizational and logistical problems of production companies and services and addresses issues of identification and evaluation of risks with design, experimentation and implementation of innovative models for the management of safety at work.

The global and integrated approach to problems develops on two levels:

  • Level 1: Process analysis or Business process reengineering (BPR), an overall vision of the company’s operation and interactions between the various business functions.
  • Level 2: Deepening of individual key aspects or areas of intervention with decision support tools such as simulation, statistical analysis to support the evaluation of process efficiency and optimization algorithms.

The laboratory in the field of security has carried out numerous sectoral analyses, it is the promoter of methods for the reduction of accidents and occupational diseases based on various techniques, for example FMEA and Behaviour based safety (BBS). The technical aspects of safety, from equipment to fully manual work, are analyzed through innovative methods. For example, simulation techniques are used to analyze repetitive movements and to program the load of workstations, to evaluate the parameters of manual handling of loads for the management of work shifts, to simulations of events such as Fires or earthquakes to verify the efficiency of emergency management. It is now recognized by many employers that changing the behavior of staff towards a safer way of working is very complex. The BBS allows the analysis of behavioral phenomenology likely to cause safe behavior or not, is able to measure and, based on objective data, to stimulate the correct behavior of workers, through a series of specifications Stimulating stresses of a previous and consequent type. Among the various activities carried out by the group during these years we have: the development of simplified models for risk assessment and for the safety management systems at work (SGSL, OHSAS 18001, UNI INAIL), the definition of guidelines; Support Tools for safety management, responding both to regulatory requirements, and to aspects of efficiency and risk reduction; The preparation of simplified cards and checklist for compiling the DVR, POS, PSC, DUVRI.


  • Beahaviour-Based safety, BBS;
  • Precision teaching;
  • Simplified models;
  • Analysis for processes and modelling;
  • Information systems available in SaaS with the implementation of the virtual community for security. System Analysis, BPR, analysis and optimisation of the performance of production processes and services;

Specifically, the LAB has carried out research in the following areas:

  • Reverse logistics and life cycle of products;
  • Internal and external logistics or distribution;
  • Economic financial analysis for investments;
  • Order cycle analysis, data flow architecture of information systems;
  • Optimisation of the AS/RS warehouse, material handling;
  • Scheduling and balancing of production lines, operational programming, sequencing, loading machine;
  • Analysis of demand and planning of production processes;
  • Study of the relational implications between the company’s distinct functions (e.g.: prediction of demand vs. production planning);
  • Interior layout design and logistic systems;
  • Balancing production lines, sizing of inter-operational buffers;
  • Production planning, resource scheduling;
  • Analysis and modelling of systems and maintenance policies also in TPM optics, for the evaluation of the overall effective performance and reliability of a production system and the modes of failure;
  • Implementation of integrated management systems quality, safety, environment and related certifications;
  • Time and method analysis MTM or NIOSH for manual activities;
  • Market analysis and forecasting and analysis of demand;
  • Development of simulation models for any system/production process, service but also terrestrial, naval and air roads;
  • Studies on distribution logistics, transport intermodality, dislocation and quantification of logistical nodes;
  • Analysis for statistical process control through control cards, and for optimisation of process configurations based on DOE-type statistical techniques and Robust Design.


  • Assessment and management of risks;
  • Identification of critical aspects in industrial processes;
  • Construction site management, processes and activities in the construction sector;
  • Simplification of DVR, POS, PSC, DUVRI, SGSL documents;
  • Models of organization and Management (MOG) and for safety management systems at work (OHSAS 18001, UNI-INAIL);
  • Behavioural safety, BBS;
  • Simulation, movement analysis, repetitive work, fire development models, emergency management
