Testing new technologies: Test bed

How to bring innovation on the market?

Innovation is probably the most important source of competitive advantage for a company. Companies should be aware that customers would consider buying a new product or technology only after they try it outside the laboratory.

LEF reproduces the entire value chain of an industrial company, through two – fully digitized -model manufacturing companies and all their services.

Here, new technologies are tested and validated for the impact they will have in the complex every day reality.

Our Use Case Program (UCP) is a unique platform and combines:

Why this program?

Startups, SMEs and all types of companies can finally experience and validate in a complex, real-world environment their innovative solutions, show them to their potential customers, and implement them much more easily with them.

Use Case Program (UCP) is a test field where clients can:

The UCP team also provides experts’ know-how in design, lean manufacturing, six sigma and digital transformation to help companies and to introduce their solutions into the market in the most efficient way.

To whom we address

To companies at any stage of development, from startups to established companies, which have developed new technologies and products and need to evaluate the effectiveness of their project in the complexities of the real world.

What we offer

The flexibility of a model industrial value chain combined with the experience in digital transformation of consultants and internal trainers who accompany the client in the transition from a conceptual Proof of Value to a validated Proof of Concept.

The company has the opportunity to test, observe and modify their technological solutions in order to optimize the use of resources, work areas and production cycles through the elimination of wastes (MUDA), according to the lean six sigma methodology and the continuous improvement approach.

This is the LEF test bed model, made possible by the world’s largest and most integrated model company:

The first stage of training includes a design thinking process that, starting with the technology in use, creates a prototype with a use case.


The second stage starts from the current concept to obtain an engineering validation of data on an experimental protocol. A DOE (Design of Experiment) modeled on the basis of the use case allows the implementation of the prototype within the test bed.

The third stage involves the implementation of the use case together with the prospect customer and the preparation of a communicable case that can be validated by third parties.
