Chapter
Full-text available
The adoption of Cyber Physical System (CPS) technologies at European level is constrained by a still emerging value chain and by the challenging transformation of manufacturing processes and business ecosystems that their deployment requires. This issue becomes even more challenging when the concept of CPS is exploited to propose cyber-physical mac...
Chapter
Silk is one of the most valuable and acknowledged materials for textile manufacturing, that also shows remarkable features for applications in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and drug delivery fields. In this chapter, opportunities involving silk upgrading from textile wastes to pharma or cosmetic applications are presented, discussing available techn...
Chapter
This paper is meant to presents a concrete methodology to integrate the vendor rating into a Request for Quotation process carried out in a sharing economy context where MaaS digital platforms are exploited. After an analysis of the current state of the art of sustainable decision making into vendors’ selection and simplified LCA techniques, the di...
Article
BACKGROUND in the last decade, many researchers demonstrated the biological activities of native Bombyx mori silk sericin (SS), and its use is widespread in the cosmetic and biomedical field. However, SS is a polluting material from the silk fibroin textile industry. This paper aims to demonstrate that the industrial wastewater‐derived SS has many...
Chapter
In the last few years, research and industrial communities have spent a considerable effort in the designing and early commissioning of digitalized manufacturing environments with the primary objective of achieving a new automation paradigm, more flexible, responsive to changes, and safe. This work presents the architecture and discusses the applic...

Preprint
CPS technologies are already mature at European level, but adoption in small & middle enterprises is constrained by a still emerging value chain and by the challenging transformation of manufacturing processes that their deployment in a manufacturing system requires. As a matter of fact, the CPS growing market potential is scarcely supported by too...
Conference Paper
The sharing economy emerged in recent years as a model disrupting the approach to traditional B2B and B2C value chains by giving access to underutilized resources at a fraction of the cost to whom cannot or do not want to buy new products. In this context, multi-sided platforms (MSPs) play the pivotal role of providing the environments and the tech...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The come to power of the sharing economy paradigm has incentivized the adoption of service-based business models largely relying on digital platforms providing the infrastructure and the ecosystems to sustain market uptake. The manufacturing domain isn’t exempted from this trend, witnessing the growing launch of digital platforms with the aim of sh...

Article
Full-text available
Ageing, occurrence of work-related musculoskeletal disorders, and rising sensitivity towards the disabled are paving the way for new, customized movement assisting devices enabling increased mobility independence, correction of user's kinesis and prevention of diseases, combined with a constant monitoring of kinematics conditions. This paper presen...
Article
In recent years a considerable effort has been spent by research and industrial communities in the digitalization of production environments with the main objective of achieving a new automation paradigm, more flexible, responsive to changes, and safe. This paper presents the architecture, and discusses the benefits, of a distributed middleware pro...
Conference Paper
Manufacturing companies continuously face the challenge of improving their sustainability profile, but one of the major problems with sustainability-centred business approaches relates to the simultaneous pursuit of private and public (society and environment) benefits. Industrial symbiosis (IS) can be a powerful answer to these approaches: IS can...
Conference Paper
A review of recent literature in the field indicates there is an increasing interest in improving sustainability performances of manufacturing. The integrated innovation of product, process and supply chain can be a promising way to improve economic, social and environmental performances of manufacturing enterprises, but there is still a lack of em...
Conference Paper
Unceasing market request for personalization of consumer goods calls for more and more flexible production technologies, and for increasingly reliable means to gather precise pictures of what each customer desires. Fitting is especially crucial to accomplish personalization in footwear, where the prevailing of manual operations makes production fle...
Conference Paper
This work describes a Human-Centric Data Model (HCDM), designed for easily ensuring a high level of scalability in order to be applied in many different scenarios, dealing with the production of personalized goods and the development of enhanced services for improving the wellbeing of specific target groups of people. The HCDM is integrated into a...
Article
L’acquisizione e l’analisi del movimento umano sono oggi impiegate in diversi campi, da applicazioni grafiche e animazioni a applicazioni sportive e clinico-riabilitative. In particolare per applicazioni biomeccaniche e cliniche i metodi attualmente più comuni prevedono un ambiente di laboratorio controllato e l’utilizzo di marker applicati sulla p...

Project
Daedalus has been conceived to enable the full exploitation of the CPS concept of virtualized intelligence, through the adoption of a completely distributed automation platform based on IEC-61499 standard, fostering the creation of a Digital Ecosystem that could go beyond the current limits of manufacturing control systems, the project proposes an ever-growing market of innovative solutions for the design, engineering, production and maintenance of plants’ automation.
Project
MAYA aims at developing simulation methodologies and multidisciplinary tools for the design, engineering and management of CPS-based (Cyber Physical Systems) Factories, in order to strategically support production-related activities during all the phases of the factory life-cycle, from the integrated design of the product - process - production system, through the optimization of the running factory, till the dismissal/reconfiguration phase. The concurrence and the cross-combination of the Cyber and the Physical dimensions with the Simulation domain is considered as cornerstone in MAYA innovations, to successfully address a new generation of smart factories for future industry responsiveness.
