Project Management


For more than 55 years, we have been supporting the world's largest industrial groups in the management and supervision of design, construction and commissioning of complex and highly-regulated infrastructures.

Faced with technical, economic, environmental and safety requirements, Assystem provides multi-disciplinary teams, tools, processes, and methodologies to manage the complexity of projects and optimise their costs and completion times.

Our global offering in Project Management Consultancy (PMC) is designed to meet the challenges of our customers at every stage of their projects, by leveraging proven digital tools adapted to the context.

We provide our clients with a real project management referential: tools, processes, and methodologies to manage and optimise the progress of their complex projects.

As Owner Engineer we can provide a project management global offer (PMC) or provide unit offers:

  • Project Management Office (PMO)
  • Configuration management
  • Design supervision
  • Supply chain supervision
  • Construction supervision
  • Testing and commissioning supervision

Digital—an effective driver of competitiveness—accelerates project execution, boosts performance, enables risk control and optimises lead times. To address these challenges and support our customers throughout their project lifecycle, we structure our digital offering into three main areas: Consulting (Listening & Audit), Methodology (Strategy & Modelling) and Integration (Implementation & Support).

Learn more about our digital offerings to serve your project management needs (PPM integration, turnkey solutions, data automation and recovery, PLM integration, modelling & simulation, BIM 4D, 5D (xD), etc.

Project Management Office (PMO)

Ensuring coordination of complex projects in highly regulated environments often requires implementation of Project Management Office tools and project platforms, in liaison with the project management team. We leverage our teams of experts in project management, particularly our specialists in France, (ECP) or in the UK. These centres of excellence constantly extend our scope of expertise and integrate the latest innovations to optimise project management methods and solutions (BIM 4D, data science, agile management, etc.).

Configuration management

Configuration management covers all steps from the technical description of a project to the integration of changes. In the context of complex projects involving multiple actors or even co-activity, configuration management is crucial to trace the entire history of modifications made to an installation.

From technical description of a project to integration of changes

At the project management level, configuration management involves requirement tracing tools, particularly for technical data repositories accessible to all project participants:

We support our customers in the identification, development and implementation of these solutions, whether turnkey or bespoke, depending on the specificities of each project and their requirements.

Ensuring project compliance at every stage of the lifecycle

We deploy configuration management for complex infrastructure projects using tools and methodologies designed to ensure project compliance with the requirements of the contracter.

For our customers with complex infrastructure projects (nuclear, transport, defence, etc.), configuration management tackles several goals:

  • Provide all stakeholders with a common and reliable technical data repository
  • Ensure the traceability of system data throughout the project, as the programme is implemented
  • Share infrastructure and system data in the upstream phase and during installation monitoring

Thanks to our expert system engineers, we strive to ensure optimum configuration management using digital technologies to provide a shared and reliable technical data benchmark that can be used throughout the project lifecycle.

Design supervision

As part of its PMC offer, Assystem can take charge of design phase supervision for customer projects: from the preliminary studies to the detailed design, all while ensuring compliance with the specification requirements.

This support requires the following tasks:

  • Supervising companies in charge of the design:
    • Planning
    • Verification of technical documentation
    • Identification and resolution of blocking points and non-conformities 
  • Assessment of the design compared with the requirements of the contracting party
  • Use of system engineering to digitalise and optimise planning, management and control of the design project
