Use Cases

Level 2 Service Desk

Our transversal and transnational team supports all the users in their use of the PLM tools in regards to our customer methods & tools.

  • As part of the support chain, their aims are to harmonize the different support  styles, increase the quality and the reactivity of the support, reduce the costs by an efficient knowledge management in a central service desk for PLM
  • Thanks to our team spread across the four customer main locations, we are able to provide a local support in the four languages (English, French, German, Spanish)
  • Client satisfaction oriented, we are strongly committed on a service level monitored by a full set of key performance indicators shared with the customer
  • Innovative, our team is working with their stakeholders to deploy new support solutions such as omnicanal support in order to improve efficiency

Onsite capabilities


  • Support on client premises to help end users in their daily usage
  • Pro-active support by co-location


  • End-users and supporters are speaking the same language
  • Face to face discussions and explanation of the needs

CenProCS is part of the European founded research project BionicAircraft, that has the target to increasing resource efficiency aviation through implementation of ALM technology and bionic design in all stages of an aircraft life cycle.

  • Research & Innovation action for CenProCS: Enabling a large scale application of ALM in aviation industry by an automated bionic lightweight design for ALM parts and integrated ALM pre-processor for commercial 3D-CAD System
  • Objective: A significant simplification of the product development and design cycle for biomimetic lightweight structures due to a simplified design methodology and an increased weight-saving potential through a specific ALM structural sizing activity and optimization (topology).

Digital Twin

We have demonstrated a Digital Process Twin of an unit installation process.

  • The Digital Twin uses production sensors and cameras to detect certain events in the process
  • It enables a real-time monitoring of the production progress, the ability to react quicker in case of deviations as well as a  data collection to allow long-term analysis and to identify potential improvements
  • The project team built up a 3D visualization of the current unit installation as a web-based graphical user interface

Innovation Cell

Innovation is in our DNA

We put all our know-how into our innovation projects to enable our customers to improve their efficiency.

Practical and pragmatic, our innovation projects cover both IT tools and good practices in the use of these tools.

In this context, we have already been able to implement projects around the automation of part design, digital simulation and manufacturing.

Whether it is on very specific manufacturing topics or global IT process optimization, our solutions are designed and built to be fully integrated in the client context.
