Article
A blood supply chain (BSC) is a very long and complex sequence of processes heavily sequential. If one of them is executed in an incorrect way and this error is not detected, it leads to an incorrect transfusion outcome, that could seriously affect patients. For this reason, there is a strong need to identify and prevent adverse events along the en...
Article
Purpose The objective of this paper is to propose an approach to comparatively analyze the performance of drugs and consumable products warehouses belonging to different healthcare institutions. Design/methodology/approach A Cluster Analysis is completed in order to classify warehouses and identify common patterns based on similar organizational c...
Article
Blood transfusion is a critical health care process due to the nature of the products handled and the complexity driven by the strong interdependence among the sub‐processes involved. Most of the errors causing adverse events originate during the blood logistics activities. Several literature contributions apply risk management to the transfusion p...

This study provides an approach to compute the travel time for AS/R systems in a class-based storage environment. A regression analysis is completed in order to define the importance of the key predictors taken into account and to propose a formulation of travel times. The results show the reliability of the model and allow to evaluate the travel t...
Article
Full-text available
Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (AS/RSs) effectively support warehouse operations in order to increase production and logistics efficiency. Literature about travel time computation in multi-shuttle AS/RSs still needs to be enhanced since most of the existing contributions rely on the same formulation, namely the Meller and Mungwattana’s equ...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Lean principles have been increasingly adopted in manufacturing over the last decades and they have just recently spread their applicability to supply chains. In such a context, lean warehousing plays a significant role in order to achieve lower costs of logistics operations and increase flexibility and efficiency in pull supply chains driven by cu...
Article
Blood transfusion is among the most complex healthcare processes including a variety of interrelated sub-processes of different nature. Therefore, it is highly exposed to risks and such a fact is witnessed by the several errors and adverse events occurring every year. Although there is quite a significant body of literature about risk management in...
Article
Full-text available
Centralized logistics management is currently one interesting option for healthcare systems facing an increasing need to improve responsiveness and service quality while reducing costs. This work focuses on one aspect of centralized logistics, namely warehouse centralization and proposes a preliminary approach to assess material management in healt...
Article
Full-text available
The pressure for increasing quality while reducing time and costs places particular emphasis on managing risk in projects. To this end, several models and techniques have been developed in literature and applied in practice, so that there is a strong need for clarifying when and how each of them should be used. At the same time, knowledge about ris...
Chapter
Full-text available
The use of innovative technologies to improve the hospital drug management process, and in particular its part concerned with logistics, needs to be supported by appropriate decision-making models basing their assessments on both technological issues and the characteristics of healthcare organisations. The frameworks existing in literature are some...
Article
Full-text available
An empirical analysis is presented to investigate the factors that have significant influence on the share of public financing into the total initial investment required to develop Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) healthcare projects. Based on a model describing the main risks associated with public participation in BOT projects, a linear regression an...
Chapter
Full-text available
The need for increasing quality while reducing time and costs asks for developing knowledge about how to manage risk in projects. However, communication and knowledge creation are not easy tasks, especially when dealing with uncertainty, because decision-making is often fragmented and a shared perspective on the goals, opportunities, and threats of...
Article
Full-text available
Despite the increasing attention that supply chain risk management is receiving by both researchers and practitioners, companies still lack a risk culture. Moreover, risk management approaches are either too general or require pieces of information not regularly recorded by organisations. This work develops a risk identification and analysis method...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Project Risk Management has been gaining acceptance amongst the practitioners due to an untiring stress on its importance, and the availability of a number of risk analysis techniques for facilitating this task in construction project management. In this arena, the selection of a suitable risk analysis technique is critical to the entire project ri...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents a study on the risk factors that can influence the share of public financing in the total investment in project finance (PF) healthcare initiatives in Italy. Based on the risks associated with public funding, a linear regression is completed in order to yield practical implications. The results show that the size of the investme...
Article
Full-text available
The recent biomedical, technological, and normative changes have led healthcare organizations to the implementation of clinical governance as a way to ensure the best quality of care in an increasingly complex environment. Risk management is one of the most relevant aspects of clinical governance and approaches put forward in literature highlight t...
Chapter
Full-text available
The paper develops a framework for supporting risk management according to the Enable process ‘Manage Supply Chain Risk’ defined by SCOR-Model. To this end, process mapping, project risk management, and performance measurement are integrated in order to provide an approach based on information and data currently recorded by the majority of companie...
Article
Full-text available
Several methods and indicators are used to measure logistic performances; thus sometimes there are various values for the same performance. This paper starts examining the structure for a supply chain performance measurement according to the service quality requirements, and determines an ordered framework for logistic indicators called LogistiQual...
Article
Full-text available
Projects are complex undertakings involving a unique set of tasks and activities conducted within a set of constraints to meet defined objectives. Risk in projects is also complex, arising from a wide range of sources and having a broad scope of possible effects on the project. Given these two dimensions of project complexity, the management of the...

Project
The project will be developed at the Department of Management and Production Engineering of the Politecnico di Torino. The project is characterized by a wide multidisciplinary approach and aims to develop a systematic analysis of the impacts of additive manufacturing not only from the technological point of view, but also with respect to the environmental sustainability, supply chain management, economic impact and legal terms. Starting from an analysis of the economic impact of the adoption of additive technologies on the national territory, an industrial case study will be identified for the reduction of the number of components of an assembly by means of additive manufacturing of a single polymeric part with integrated kinematics. The additive manufactured assembly will be tested for wear and its life will be also estimated. Besides the experimental approach, for the specific case study the project will analyze the advantages of adopting additive manufacturing in terms of sustainability and supply chain management. It will be studied how the configuration of the new supply chain impacts on the dynamics inherent in product liability and its allocation, as well as on the interaction between the various actors with regard to intellectual properties, where they are susceptible to legal protection.
