We also assume that JIT techniques may directly influence some internal parameters that, taken together, describe the functioning characteristics of the production system. These parameters, which we call operating conditions, are, for example, time variables such as lead time and throughput time, physical measurements such as lot size, and relative parameters such as capacity utilisation and percentage of defects[1]. Yet the actual benefits depend on improving performance of the production system.

3 The Legacy Undoubtedly, Gianluca was a leader and not just for his work and projects, but above all for the values that permeated through his work. Firstly, he had a marked feeling for the institution. Although this may seem obvious, it is certainly not the case, especially in a university environment, where often there is marked individualism, self-centredness, lack of cooperation and lack of accountability in building and developing the institution. Secondly, his was an approach always based on design and driven by initiative.
