System engineering and design

Context

Due to our expertise in system engineering and design , we are able to supply a framework to ensure the success of project requirements and targets. This framework can be used by all stakeholders: architect engineers, engineering, builders, operators, independent regulatory organisations. 

We use system engineering methods at all design stages, including project implementation.

System engineering: requirement management, interface and change management

The production of complex infrastructures requires the implementation of a large number of systems and equipment with numerous interfaces, involving a range of business activities (civil engineering, IT, auditing/ordering, electricity, mechanics, etc.).

Integrating system engineering to maximise progress on complex projects

Subject to stringent regulatory requirements, the projects we are involved in require the use of system engineering to optimise scheduling, operations and coordination.

Benefits for our customers in their infrastructure and projects:

  • System compliance with needs and constraints
  • Knowledge of technical risks related to the project
  • Productivity and quality gains
  • Safety of construction and testing phases
  • Supply chainintegration in project completion
  • Monitoring of progress and costs

Developing optimised solutions to meet customer needs

By providing technical, methodological and organisational solutions, we deliver concrete and practical coordination of project operations while also ensuring consistent systems engineering processes and implementation of PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) and/or ALM (Asset Lifecycle Management) tools.

We adapt our service offering to the targets and specific expectations of our customers and develop relevant optimised solutions.

Deployment of system engineering methods
Implementation of tools (PLM / ALM, BIM, xD Modelling)
Digitalisation of processes
Assistance with change management

Reports and design

Masterplanning

Masterplanning enables the development of a complex infrastructure project using a long-term master plan. It is defined at the start of the project and integrates all of the components, constraints and stakeholders.

To optimise completion, Assystem’s teams build and provide this service, harnessing the power of digital tools and systems engineering solutions.

  • Identification of interconnections inflows/outflows and multi-year projections
  • Development of a phasing and implementation schedule
  • Spatial planning and territorial architecture
  • Macro steering of the project process, integrating each stakeholder
  • Anticipation of drifts, identification of critical milestones for better risk control

This flexible approach is particularly valued for territorial infrastructure projects and property programmes. For these types of projects, we operate at the PMC level, with a masterplanning offering that includes:

  • Design guidelines
  • Spatial and architectural planning
  • Structures and public services

Feasibility, Conceptual design, Detailed design, and Design reviews

Whether a physical (buildings) or functional approach (system), the Assystem teams provide support for all types of design: nuclear power stations, renewable energy fleets, complex buildings and urban developments.


Supporting our customers right from the initial design stages of their infrastructure projects

We take part in the initial design through to detailed engineering and architectural design for multiple infrastructure projects.

  1. Master plan 
  2. Feasibility/ Outline
  3. Conceptual design
  4. Detailled design
  5. PRO & DCE (Consultation file for companies)
  6. ACT (Assistance with the contracting of works contracts)
  7. EXE (Execution Plans) & VISA
  8. DET (Management of the execution of the works) & Technical supervision of the construction

To enhance the efficiency of our design methods, we use system engineering tools to digitalise and optimise planning, management, and monitoring of the design project.


Assessing and challenging the design of existing projects

Our competencies apply both to new designs and also to design reviews, enabling us to assess the design of an existing project in line with pre-defined requirements. The Assystem teams are involved in design review, stringently complying with expectations in terms of quality and performance.
