Our Clients

Our clients are companies who develop their own products or services, in total or in parts, whether they are mass consumer products or specialized ones, software or scientific apps, buildings or infrastructures or more. These “products” all have something in common: they are high-tech and because of their complexity, they require the use of multidisciplinary teams. Also, the companies who use our services must deliver a more and more high performance complex product, in delays getting shorter and shorter.

Thus, these companies must have a value management process to manage their products and a more efficient and adapted product development process.

All companies who have a significant number of engineers/designers/technicians and who fell the pressure to deliver project within tights budgets, and still wanting to satisfy clients needs, these companies can improve the performance of their design team by learning the tools of value management.
