After a career at Telecom Italia, Ettore became Telecom and Media Executive Director for a major consulting company. He joined AKKA in 2011 as Managing Director and CEO of AKKA Italy. He then became Executive Director of the Turkish subsidiary. In 2015, he became CEO of AKKA Western Europe with responsibility for Italy, Belgium, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
AKKA Italy was assigned a major software project with a leading railway company in Bologna in 2013. We take care of the configuration tool for Railway Signalling Systems (interlocking systems) management, from track plan layout to complete hardware configuration and data application definition. Our team is entirely responsible for the software development V-cycle, from requirement analysis and data collection to the final delivery to the customer. AKKA Italy initially started with software development projects in Bologna back in 2008.
Cooperative robots can work together with human operators in order to reduce manufacturing time, improve ergonomic work conditions and increase the overall quality of operations. For this project, our team of AKKA experts cooperates with the R&D Centre of Excellence for an automotive client in Piemont. It is about defining the potential installation of cooperative robots in automotive production lines. In order to identify where and how cooperative robots can be placed, the development of this project involved analysing the business case as well as legislative and financial issues, identifying operations with potential for cost reduction and ergonomic enhancement. The project is ongoing.
Designing a new windshield to make a cockpit as both light and robust as possible was the goal of this project, AKKA Italy developed for a leading aeronautics company in Varese. The objective was to design a windshield, able to resist a high speed impact of an object during the flight and thus obtain the certificate of airworthiness for a helicopter. This typical aeronautics project incorporated the simulation of a bird’s collision with the helicopter windshield, in order to predict the structural responses and failure modes to the impact.
The project required analyzing similar installations, materials and manufacturing processes in order to identify the best solution. Our team managed the complete development and certification in cooperation with the client’s design engineers and the supplier for structural testing laboratories.
Our activities included:
The AKKA Italy team offered its expertise in simulation, structural design activities and bird strikes. Our solution is now up and running and met the client’s high expectations during the certification procedure. This new windshield is now one of the lightest in its category.
AKKA Italy offers dynamic multi-sector opportunities to its consultants and allows them to challenge their expertise in different contexts. We encourage our consultants to develop their professional and personal skills. The Group’s international footprint facilitates know-how transfers between its various sites and offers great career opportunities. Mobility is a key driver for the performance of the company as well as for the staff’s personal development.
