10 Mar 2022 Software Engineer, OR Specialist

Toggle description

Salvagnini Italia SpA is looking for software engineers to enforce the software department to develop CAD\CAM applications in order to optimize the use of his machine tool for the sheet metal working process.

Job title: software engineer

Type of Contract: permanent contract

Division: Software Department

Duty Station: Sarego, Vicenza, Italy (38 hours per week applied, i.e. Friday working time is from 8.00 up to 14.00, smart working available on a basis of 2 days each week)

Salvagnini produces machine tools for the flexible thin sheet metal industry. It produces punching, laser cutting, automatic panel bender and press brake machines.

Salvagnini is the worldwide leader in automatic panel bender machines and one of the most important players on the other sheet metal machines.

It stands out as a system supplier, that consists of a set of linked machine to automatize the material flow from the raw material (rectangular flat sheets with commercial sizes) to the finite product with a very low human intervention.

For this purpose, besides proper tool machines, Salvagnini designs, produces and sells many connection systems for the material handling of semi-finished and finished products.

Salvagnini is a group, with production site in Italy (Sarego, Brendola, Avellino) and Austria (Linz) and numerous selling and post-selling sites.

Salvagnini machine tools distinguish themselves for their flexibility, that is the ability to load and execute a different program without machine idle times: this requires the programming time of the machine to be comparable to the cycle time (less than a minute in many cases). The software department then develops software applications that let the user transform a drawing of his product (CAD) into a program for the tool machines (CAM) that he will use in an optimized way.

To this end, we intensively use OR optimization algorithms, combined with computational geometry.

The software department accounts as core values the knowledge sharing and the availability to work in a group, together with the development and the maintenance of the complete application’s life cycle.

The software applications are typically desktop one in Microsoft environment, developed using VisualStudio in C++ and dotNet language.

(Dates are approximate. More details to come soon)

Position starting on: January 2022

Esperienza richiesta ai candidati:
dottorato di ricerca in tematiche riguardanti la ricerca operativa e/o l’ingegneria e la bioingegneria industriale
AREE CUN: 09- Ingegneria industriale e dell’informazione oppure 01 – scienze matematiche e informatiche


L’elevata complessità dei servizi di assistenza domiciliare richiede una gestione ottimale delle risorse umane (medici, infermieri, ...) e materiali (dispositivi, materiali consumabili, ...) coinvolte nell’erogazione dei servizi. In particolare, le nuove tipologie di servizio (come ad esempio terapie di riabilitazione complesse, esami diagnostici, monitoraggi del paziente) richiedono un'accurata gestione delle risorse materiali coinvolte nel servizio. Sfortunatamente, i dispositivi e i materiali non sono considerati nei modelli presenti in letteratura e nella pratica di diversi erogatori di servizi domiciliari, come non è incluso il personale tecnico necessario per supportarne l'utilizzo. Il progetto si occupa quindi della gestione integrata delle risorse materiali nei servizi di assistenza domiciliare, considerando due livelli. Il livello principale è quello organizzativo, per cui ci si prefigge di arricchire i modelli presenti in letteratura con la componente riguardante le risorse materiali, focalizzandosi su modelli di ottimizzazione stocastica e robusta in modo da includere la gestione dell’incertezza tipica dei servizi di assistenza domiciliare. A questo si affiancherà un livello tecnico, riguardante la valutazione dei dispositivi più adatti ad essere utilizzati nell’assistenza domiciliare, e la definizione delle specifiche tecniche per lo sviluppo futuro di dispositivi appositamente ottimizzati per l’uso domiciliare.

The high complexity of home care services requires an optimal management of human (doctors, nurses, ...) and material (devices, consumables, ...) resources involved in service provisioning. In particular, new types of service (e.g., complex rehabilitation therapies, diagnostic tests, patient monitoring) require careful management of the material resources involved in the service, which can represent a relevant cost item, and their management may influence the scheduling of visits. Unfortunately, devices and materials are not considered in the models available in the literature and in the practice of several home service providers, as well as the technical staff necessary to use them. Therefore, the project addresses the integrated management of material resources in home care services, considering two levels. The main level is the organizational one, for which we aim to enrich the available models with a component dealing with material resources, focusing on stochastic and robust optimization models in order to include the management of the uncertainty typical of home care services. This will be accompanied by a technical level, with the evaluation the existing devices that are most suitable for use in home care services, and with the definition of technical specifications for the future development of devices specifically optimized for home use.

15 Aug 2021 PhD and postdoc in Solution methodologies for binary quadratic optimization problems

Toggle description

Supervisors: Leandro Coelho (Université Laval) and Franklin Djeumou Fomeni (Université du
Québec à Montréal)

Start date: 1 January 2022

Duration: 4 years

Summary of the project:
Binary Quadratic Optimization (BQO) is a special class of discrete optimization, which amounts to
optimizing a quadratic objective function of binary decision variables subject to a set of linear
constraints. Some applications of BQO include portfolio optimization, projects selection, sustainable
development, facilities location and vehicle routing problems. BQO problems are known to be very
challenging to solve due to the non-linear nature of their objective functions and the discrete nature of
their decision variables. Indeed, even simple special cases of BQO, such as the quadratic knapsack
problem, the quadratic assignment problem, etc., are known to be strongly NP-hard. The aim of this
research project is to develop a host of innovating solution methodologies for solving BQO problems.
These methodologies will include heuristic, meta-heuristics and exact algorithms. Some of the
techniques to be used include, but not limited to, dynamic programming, cutting planes, polyhedral
studies, branch-and-cut and decision diagram.
We invite applications from highly motivated candidates for full-time PhD or Postdoc positions to
develop advanced methodologies for solving BQO problems and use them for some applications in
finance, in energy and in transportation.

Work environment:
The successful candidates will be jointly supervised by Leandro Coelho (professor at Université Laval
in Quebec City) and Franklin Djeumou Fomeni (professor at Université du Québec à Montréal,
UQAM, Montreal). They will also have the opportunity to become members of both GERAD
( and CIRRELT (

Masters in Operations Research or equivalent
Knowledge of optimization methods (e.g.: heuristics, linear programming)
Programming skill: C/C++ (preferred) or Python/Matlab

A financial support of up to 22 000$ per year for PhD. For postdoc, it will be comensurate with

Required documents:
Degrees certificates, Academic transcripts, CV, Cover letter and two reference letters
