Please provide a short description of the state-of-the-art and/or current trends in the field? How does the result fit into it?
The traditional method for the preparation of the prototypes is the one that foresees  the realization  embodiment of a model made ​​by hand through the use of gypsum and the subsequent production of models  for industrialized production. With this design there is a speeding up of the product with a industrialization of the same, because basically the prototype is achieved directly from the drawing without passing through the computerized modelling done by hand, with a considerable saving of time and costs.

What is the problem/need/knowledge gap that the research result is responding to?  How was it addressed before?
The current trend is to obtain more and more high quality products in short times and with scrupulous optimization of production costs, for this we rely more and more to the computerization and automation of production, which consequently creates the need to have available to highly qualified personnel for the management of these complex tools.
therefore  is important to employ the personnel training and management of production equipment, as well as , the technical competence of bodies in charge of the design and development of product modelling.

What is the potential for further research?
This methodology of product, as well as, a saving in terms of cost and time of creation, allows the end user to have an advanced product from the aesthetic point of view, architectural and technical-functional,  and able to compete in the markets at the international level, as also the provision of control of international regulations present in the production equipment of the model.

What is the proposed method of IPR-protection? (patent, license, trademark etc.)
The product being innovative especially for the context in which it is inserted, i.e. the national level, does not have a specific protection as a  registration or a patent, however, it could apply an IP to each prototype product in the case in which complied with the parameters required under the rules of competence.

What are the steps that need to be taken in order to secure the IPR-protection? What is the cost of IPR-protection?
National protection of ideas is through the patent for invention or utility model or trademark registration through the UPICA (Patent Office).
To register a patent in Italy and keep it alive, ranging from a minimum of 50 Euros (summary electronically) to 600 Euros for the summary paper of the idea over 50 pages. To protect every year over the fourth to be paid from 60 to 650 Euros up to the twentieth, after which the invention is free. In addition the use of private consultants, which change depending on the project and it must be at least 2-3 thousand Euros.To protect the world a couple of years should follow the procedure PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty), by filing an application at WIPO in Geneva, the World Intellectual Property Organization.

What is you overall assessment of the scientific maturity of the research result?
The scientific maturity of the proposed technical decision could be estimated as average. The module is not an innovative technology, but actually a utility model. The use of raw materials readily available, a highly advanced technology and highly competent staff and particularly predisposed to the development, invention and innovation  makes the overall context of the company  in good  future prospects.
