Occupational field

Advanced Technicians for integrated management of industrial processes perform management of the production process. They apply digital technologies of Industry 4.0 and the principles of continuous improvement (lean production) to integrate internal production with materials from suppliers. They handle operational processes of production, handling, storage and distribution of materials, manage the flow of information to/from the supply chain and deal with the analysis of technical design specifications relating to the processing of the product. Technicians verify a product’s feasibility and manages production lines, optimizing the calibration of production technologies and configuration of the production process. They must perform make or buy analysis and define the resources and the production program, checking the availability of materials. Using digital control, supervision and acquisition systems (HMI-SCADA) and systems for optimizing the production function, technicians collect and manage data generated by sensors; analyse industrial costs and the efficiency of the production process starting from performance indicators (lead time, total effectiveness plant, productivity, inventory value and warehouse rotation, calculation of economic lots), in order to plan maintenance policies and verify the need for technological updating of plants.

Professional profile

Advanced Technicians for the integrated management of industrial processes carry out production process management activities, applying relevant digital technologies of Industry 4.0 and the principles of continuous improvement (lean production) to integrate internal production lines with materials from suppliers. They handle operational processes of production, handling, storage and distribution of materials, and manage the flow of information to/from the supply chain.
