Maurizio Brevini “The new unified organisation is operational and investments


are being made to strengthen the activities of the team”
Research & Development: “Forthcoming future”

Research and development


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia.
Research and development (R&D, also called
research and technical development or research
and technological development, RTD in Europe)
is a specific group of activities within a business. The
activities that are classified as R&D differ from company
to company, but there are two primary models. In one
model, the primary function of an R&D group is to
develop new products; in the other model, the primary
function of an R&D group is to discover and create new
knowledge about scientific and technological topics for
the purpose of uncovering and enabling development
of valuable new products, processes, and services.

“This definition would be enough to reaffirm that operating and functional re-structuring process be used for tests lasting 24 hours a day divided by

Advantages
The plan to unify the all research and development
roles strives to draw concrete and growing
advantages over time thanks to a greater sharing
of knowledge gained in the various experimental
divisions. In fact, the level of efficiency and value
has increased thanks to the creation of an actual
team with increasing points of view thanks to
a daily dialogue, hence increasing the time to
find the fastest possible solution. Moreover, the
new organisation has consistently improved the
availability of instruments and hence the potential
of the division, primarily overlapping roles in the
various companies.
The creation of the new team guarantees Brevini
Fluid Power a vision of the system resulting in
a considerable advantage with respect to single
component companies that only offer a single part
of a system. In fact, Brevini Fluid Power is heading
towards this direction by becoming a market leader,
making its systems the strength for the company”.
The team consists of: Felice Fornaciari, Stefano
Corradi, Brizio Epifani, Roberto Minozzi, Alessandro
Sassi, Luca Zanichelli, Federica Franzoni and
Alessandro Giliberti.
“The use of new technologies, like the numeric
simulation allows us to assess sustainable costs,
even solutions that would otherwise be difficult to
bring to completion.
The unification brings together the R&TD divisions
of production brands of the Group under one “roof”
whose primary goal is investing on all product lines
and obviously boost the availability of equipment and
qualified persons for testing, resulting in an increase
of efficiency and effectiveness of the division and
the quality of the end product”.- added Maurizio
Brevini We intend to continue heading towards this
direction by making considerable investments in
R&D to improve the product range”.
