Chiara Cimini

PhD student

Chiara graduated in Mechanical Engineering in 2014 from the University of Bergamo, with a thesis on the management of maintenance spare parts. From 2015, she is a PhD student in Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of Bergamo. From 2014 to 2017, she participated in the research project “Smart Manufacturing 2020” funded by the Italian Technological Cluster “Fabbrica Intelligente” for the implementation of innovative solutions for traceability and data collection in manufacturing contexts. From 2014 to the present, she has collaborated with several local companies on industrial projects. Her main research interests concern Industry 4.0 and the impacts of the introduction of new technologies in operations. Her research activity focuses on the role of the operator and the new skills required in the Industry 4.0 context. Since 2014, she has been tutoring courses in “Plant Design” and “Design of production systems” for the master’s degrees in Mechanical and Management Engineering at the University of Bergamo.
