This laboratory was created with the aim to provide students some of the most modern tools for the study of production processes, production systems and logistics, industrial management and supervision control. It is equipped with a multiple interconnecting stations on scale that realize a flexible system, which carry out different processes according to various automated layout. The availability of both simulation software and hardware models gives the possibility of analysing from a multi-disciplinary point of view the system performance. The distinctive industrial features of the activities carried out contributes to reinforcing the link between academia and manufacturing by promoting the integration of graduate students into future work.
The main research activities developed in this laboratory are the following:
