The research was based on the feasibility study for the development of new services for customers in order to increase the same, increase competitiveness compared to other firms in the sector, increase the quality of internal processes and services offered to the community. The present research aimed to identify the main internal criticalities and evaluate the possibility of correction, also considering the technical and economic aspects and the constraints of the firm layout.

The study also shows that, in the event of the development of a turnover induced by the new multi-residual analysis activity, the investment has the potential to achieve more than satisfactory returns. To achieve these results, it was necessary to reorganize and optimize internal processes, based on a study of the internal production layout and how this affects current production both in terms of integration and for the acquisition of new highly qualified skills not present to date. 2 Daniela Maurizi et al.
