Management consultant with over 8 years of experience as a Systems Engineer, involved with logistics and support activities for the operations of several projects for the International Space Station. I have led and completed numerous projects in Italy and abroad for the European Space Agency and the U.S. government space agency and gained capability of providing documentation, detailed instructions, drawings, or specifications to tell others about how devices, parts, equipment, or structures are to be fabricated, constructed, assembled, modified, maintained, or used.


Having had ample experience in project management, production processes, supply chain management, procurement, industrialization, logistics and operations matters has helped me develop solid leadership skills and an increased awareness of the dynamics of a project, aptitude for learning new skills, constructive independent critical thinking, asking productive questions, and finding innovative solutions to problems.


Extensive traveling, working abroad, frequent and consistent interaction with foreign partners to support product integration, have nurtured my capacity to adapt to new environments. I have learned how important it is to be flexible and make use of my own resources, such as keeping a lively network of contacts, good negotiation skills and positive thinking.

·   As responsible for the Stowage Planning and On-Orbit Inventory and Stowage reporting (COLUMBUS International Space Station module), I contributed to optimizing the stowage management process, introducing the use of 3D tools and a dedicated KPI to be shared with TASI international partners. Moreover, I proposed better stowage solutions and managed their implementation with the flight control team and the crew.

·   As stock consumption analyst (Trains for Italian, Polish and Swiss railways), I investigated on Lead Time of more than 40 suppliers and proposed new values of Reorder Point and Kan-Ban size in order to avoid out-of-stock and guarantee the availability of the codes for the future needs. Moreover I calculated the over and under consumption percentage of more than 3000 codes and I implemented it in SAP. Thanks to my analysis I guaranteed to save money for about one million euros.
