IMA Italy Chapter Vice-President Prof. Lino Cinquini's speech at Industrial Software Forum in Milan


Il Prof. Lino Cinquini della Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna è intervenuto nell’ambito della prima edizione del Forum del Software Industriale organizzato da Anie Automazione Gruppo Software in collaborazione con Messe Frankfurt Italia, che si è tenuto a Milano lo scorso 6 febbraio per approfondire come le imprese manifatturiere possono beneficiare dall’ adozione delle tecnologie abilitanti la digital transformation (https://www.innovationpost.it/2019/02/07/automazione-e-software-industriale-leve-di-innovazione-e-competitivita-per-le-pmi-italiane/).

Ha presentato alcuni risultati dello svolgimento del progetto “L’evoluzione dei Cost & Performance Management Systems per le sfide di cambiamento e di competitività nelle PMI manifatturiere Italiane” (informazioni su: www.value4digital.com), condotto dalla Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna di Pisa, l’Università di Firenze e l’Università di Pisa e finanziato dal Ministero dell’Istruzione, dell’Università e della Ricerca (MIUR) nell’ambito del finanziamento PRIN 2015 che ha l’obiettivo di evidenziare il ruolo che i sistemi di misurazione dei costi e delle performance aziendali (Cost & Performance Management Systems- CPMS) possono svolgere nel trasformare le sfide della servitizationin opportunità di crescita e miglioramento per le imprese.

In particolare, in collaborazione con ANIE i tre poli universitari stanno elaborando un modello di stima del ROI (Return on Investment) che permetterà, attraverso la misura di numerosi indicatori, di valutare l’impatto sull’economia dell’impresa dell’investimento nelle nuove tecnologie digitali. Si tratta di uno uno strumento utile in quanto una maggiore consapevolezza del ritorno di questi investimenti può spingere maggiormente verso trasformazione digitale. Servono infatti modelli di misurazione, anche in termini monetari, che consentano a imprenditori e manager di quantificare il ritorno di questo tipo diinvestimenti. Non c’è dubbio che le nuove tecnologie danno risultati in termini di efficienza, qualità̀, riduzione dei tempi, ma è fondamentale riuscire a convertire questi indicatori anche in indicatori monetari. Attualmente è in corso la sperimentazione del modello in alcune aziende pilota.

Prof. Lino Cinquini of the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies took part in the first edition of the Industrial Software Forum organized by Anie Automazione Gruppo Software in collaboration with Messe Frankfurt Italia, which was held in Milan on February, 6thto examine how manufacturing companies can benefit from the adoption of technologies enabling digital transformation (https://www.innovationpost.it/2019/02/07/automazione-e-software-industriale-leve-di-innovazione-e-competitivita-per-le-pmi-italiane/).

He presented some results of the project "The evolution of Cost & Performance Management Systems for the challenges of change and competitiveness in Italian manufacturing SMEs" (information on: www.value4digital.com), lead by the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna di Pisa, the University of Florence and the University of Pisa and financed by the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) as part of the PRIN 2015 funding, which aims to highlight the role and support of Cost and Performance Management Systems (CPMS) in transforming the challenges of “servitization” into opportunities for business growth and improvement.

In particular, in collaboration with ANIE, the three universities are developing a model of ROI estimation (Return on Investment) that will allow, through the measurement of numerous indicators, to assess the impact of the investment in new digital technologies on the financials of the company. It is a useful tool because a greater awareness of the return of these investments can foster towards digital transformation. In fact, measurement models in monetary terms are needed  to allow entrepreneurs and managers to quantify the return of this type of investment. There is no doubt that new technologies give results in terms of efficiency, quality and time reduction, but it is essential to be able to convert these KPIs into monetary indicators as well. The model is currently being tested in some pilot companies.

Message from the President

 
Dear Fellow Colleagues,

it was an immense honor and also a great satisfaction to have contributed to the success of our Chapter Charter Ceremony on May 29th.

I sincerely thank those who participated directly, also taking on the burden of a trip to Milan, but I also thank those who could not be with us that day.

The quality of the interventions, the availability of the speakers and the professionalism of the staff made available by IMA EUROPE allowed the guests to enjoy an afternoon of high level training.

This event marks the OFFICIAL beginning of the Chapter Activities, their continuation will also depend on the contribution of all to the Development of our Italian CHAPTER.

I urge you to point out projects, proposals, needs and suggestions to animate the life of our Chapter.

The current Board of Directors is working on the definition of the 2018/2019 goals and in the coming months we will have our first Assembly of the CHAPTER, hopefully immediately after the summer break.
