The Management Engineering Challenge is about to start! Students and companies are getting to know each other for an important goal.
Teams of university students, enrolled in Master's degree programs and mentored by researchers, will apply advanced management engineering methods to develop actionable solutions that the companies and organisations that take part in the Challenge can use to innovate their own processes and management practices according to the principles of production management and control (i.e., lean management, just in time production, reconfigurable production systems, digital twins). 
The selected companies and organizations that will participate in the challenge are:

  1. Servizio attività educative per l'infanzia - Provincia autonoma di Trento
  2. Girardini srl
  3. Cavit sc

Main partner of the project: Fondazione Hub Innovazione Trentino (HIT).
