Content / Work description: Tra i vari progetti di investimento del “Next Generation EU” ci sono alcune aree di punta su cui i singoli piani nazionali si dovranno concentrare, tra cui l’efficienza energetica delle abitazioni e degli edifici. Gli edifici sono responsabili del 40% dei consumi energetici e, secondo diversi studi, questa percentuale crescerà del 20% entro il 2035. Le tecnologie Internet of Things a supporto dell'efficienza energetica stanno quindi acquistando una notevole rilevanza al fine di rendere la nostra società più sostenibile. L’obiettivo di questo lavoro di tesi è quello di realizzare un modello di stima costi-benefici che permetta di valutare con chiarezza i risultati ottenibili in termini di efficientamento energetico, in relazione ad alcuni parametri quali la dimensione dell’edificio, la classe energetica e la zona climatica in cui è stato costruito.

Deadline: 20-06-2021

Requirements: ---

Additional Information: Il tesista si affiancherà ai ricercatori svolgendo il lavoro in sinergia con le attività dell'Osservatorio Internet of Things (www.osservatori.net), partecipando a workshop di confronto con i principali player del mercato.

Procurement Digital Maturity Model

Type of project: Dissertation

Supervisor 1: Federico Caniato

Date: 13 April 2021

Email: elisa.medina@polimi.it

Authors: 2

Co-Supervisor: Michela Guida

Contacts: Elisa Medina

Content / Work description: Digital transformation is essential to make procurement meeting its growing list of strategic objectives. Opportunities from usage of digital technologies in procurement are endless, but so are the challenges and organizational implications. Harvesting opportunities and avoiding pitfalls require a certain degree of maturity towards digitalization. Yet all too often maturity is overestimated, and transformations slow to materialize. Part of this problem is related to the lack of a procurement digital maturity model that allows for a comprehensive measurement of the element that describes a buyer firm's digital readiness. This thesis aims at designing a procurement digital maturity model by identifying all the variables really useful to measure how mature a buyer firm is and test it with a pool of buyer companies. In this way the structure of the model is validated and the current digital maturity of buyer companies is assessed, also highlighting the enabling factors and barriers to a proper and successful adoption of technology.

Procurement sustainability & Artificial Intelligence

Type of project: Dissertation

Supervisor 1: Federico Caniato

Date: 13 April 2021

Email: elisa.medina@polimi.it

Authors: 2

Co-Supervisor: Michela Guida

Contacts: Elisa Medina

Content / Work description: Sustainable procurement is the adoption and integration of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) principles into the procurement processes and decisions while also ensuring, they meet the requirements  of the buyer firm and its stakeholders. Sustainable Procurement integrates requirements, specifications and criteria that are compatible with the protection of the environment and the society. It is not simply about avoiding child labor or illegal chemicals that can damage the environment and peoples’ health: it ensures values which are core to the business are integrated through the supply chain into the life cycle of the company’s products and services. Enhancing these concepts, Circular Procurement is the process by which products and services are purchased in accordance with the principles of the circular economy, and it should function as part of the wider sustainable procurement strategy of a particular organization. In pursuing the principles of sustainability and circular procurement, technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence or Blockchain, play an enabling and reinforcing role. This thesis aims at investigating the impact that digital technologies have on the procurement sustainability and on the circular models applied on procurement.

The environmental and social impact of Additive Manufacturing on supply chains

Type of project: Dissertation

Supervisor 1: Antonella Moretto

Date: 13 April 2021

Email: alessio.ronchini@polimi.it

Authors: 2

Co-Supervisor: Alessio Ronchini

Contacts: Alessio Ronchini

Content / Work description: Additive Manufacturing is one of the prominent technology to change future Supply Chains. Its capability to build objects layer by layer instead of subtracting materials makes this technology perfect for the production of high-value added objects whose design is very complex to produce. Moreover, the possibility to produce on-demand and wherever it is needed, using only a CAD file and powder, allows to create a network of distributed manufacturing that shifts the production closer to the customer. It has an impact on the carbon footprint, by reducing transportation, and on material usage and waste, given the fact the powder not used can be reused. Moreover, the creation of a distributed manufacturing network allows to locally develop workers and service providers that foster the economy and the innovation of rural areas. Hence, in academia there is a debate about the sustainable impact of additive manufacturing in terms of social and environmental dimensions. The thesis has the aim of validating with empirical evidence what has been conceptualized in academia, and the aim of finding other possible impacts that have never been considered.

Content / Work description: Additive Manufacturing is one of the prominent technology to change future Supply Chains. Its capability to build objects layer by layer instead of subtracting materials makes this technology perfect for the production of high-value added objects whose design is very complex to produce. Its main applications are in the aerospace, automotive, healthcare and spare parts industries, while in other sectors it faces some adoption barriers. The adoption of this technology has an impact on the supply chain of the adopter company in terms of design, strategy and performance. The aim of this thesis is to perform a single case study by investigating the impact of the adoption of Additive Manufacturing on the supply chain of a firm by collecting data not only from the company itself, but also from the other players belonging to the AM supply chain. The willingness is to study the supply chain with a dyadic/triadic approach in order to collect information about changes on the supply chain from multiple sources.

Content / Work description: Additive Manufacturing is one of the prominent technology to change future Supply Chains. Its capability to build objects layer by layer instead of subtracting materials makes this technology perfect for the production of high-value added objects whose design is very complex to produce. Its main applications are in the aerospace, automotive, healthcare and spare parts industries, while in other sectors it faces some adoption barriers. One of them is the high costs associated both to the investment in the printer itslef and to the manufacturing costs. Beyond these costs, when thinking about its adoption it is proper to have a broader view of the expenses that this technology can imply, i.e. sourcing costs, transportation costs, energy use, etc. In academic literature, a TCO model that considers all this items is lacking. Hence, this dissertation is aimed at creating a holistic model built on a deep review of the existing literature and on interviews with experts.

Content / Work description: Supply Chain Finance is gaining increasing attention both from an academic and from a managerial viewpoint. However, research mainly focuses on buyer-supplier dyads, analyzing Supply Chain Finance solutions that are used to support strategic first-tier suppliers, while few studies are trying to understand the opportunities to develop Supply Chain Finance solutions beyond the first supply tier. In increasingly complex and fragmented supply chains, a buyer-supplier dyad perspective is no longer suitable: often the need of cash is faced by critical suppliers at the second or third supply level, undermining the overall supply chain stability. This thesis aims at exploring how Supply Chain Finance can go beyond the first-tier suppliers, understanding the potentialities and impacts of “deep tier solutions”. The thesis will be developed with the Supply Chain Finance observatory.
