The course introduces key principles in terms of business strategy and management. The main learning outcome of this part is the capacity to develop an industrial plan. The industrial planning will consider the major transformations occurring under an industry 4.0 scenario. 

The second part of the course will focus on entrepreneurship, how to start up a business and write a business plan and how to design the business model. 

Business finance will be the third part of the course, both from the perspective of large and established firms and from the perspective of start ups.

TPS e pensiero snello: un linguaggio universale e applicabile a svariati contesti produttivi

An overview of automatic machinery and the manufacturing industry world from a mechanical and mechatronic point of view.

The course is meant to provide an overview on electronics for application to industrial measurements. The main topics are signal amplification, filtering, and generation, digital circuits and A-to-D and D-to-A conversion. Operation of the most important instruments for circuit characterization is also discussed. The course includes practical activities to be carried out in the electronic laboratory.

The course will provide an introduction and background on the main components and techniques of a communication systems. This part will cover fundamentals of signals and transmisison over wired (cables) and wireless (radio) media. The secon part of the course will review multiple access techniques and some performance metrics. Finally, the main part of the course will be dedicated to a description of the main communication systems in the local environment as well as in the global connectivity. Among the first, emphasys will be given to local area networks, their topology and performance. Applications in industrial environments will be more specifically addressed together with exploitation of sensors to support control systems. Global coverage systems will encompass telephone networks (both fixed and mobile/cellular) and the Internet.
