Financial Performance of Servitized Manufacturers


Biography:

Ornella Benedettini joined the IfM in September 2009 as academic visitor at the Cambridge Service Alliance. Her work has broadly been concerned with the analysis of financial consequences of servitization of manufacturing strategies (servitization paradox in particular) and, more recently, the modelling of service complexity. 

Ornella is also a University lecturer at the Politecnico di Bari, where she is in charge of the modules of ‘Industrial Plants’ (Degree in Industrial Engineering) and ‘Reliability and Maintenance of Production Systems’ (Master Degree in Mechanical Engineering). She has held a visiting academic position at Cranfield University from 2005 to 2009, and has been appointed University Fellow in 2008. Her research at Cranfield Univerisity has covered a number of topics, including discrete events simulation, modelling of human behaviour in manufacturing systems design, asset health management, green production, servitization of manufacturing and product-service systems. On behalf of Cranfield University, Ornella has also worked as consultant at Ford Motor Company and within the Boeing-Cranfield Centre of Excellence on Integrated Vehicle Health Management.

Ornella’s educational background includes a PhD in logistics and a Master Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Politecnico di Bari. Her student work has been awarded prizes from the Italian Association of Logistics and Supply Chain Management (AILOG) and the National Association of Industrial Mechanical Plants (ANIMP).
