GROUPE ECIA leads the research and development policy of the compagny for the design of IT tools and the provision of innovative solutions for complex industrial projects.
GROUPE ECIA's engineering activities are mainstreamed into complex projects requiring effective handling of a great many technical, technological and organisational interfaces.
In addition, the enforcement of recent legislation, such as the 7 February 2012 decree setting general rules for basic nuclear facilities, considerably changed the methodological approach to design engineering. It introduced safety and security-guided engineering management and the need to be able to rely on project configuration management tools capable of controlling all project data.
The IT Department is in charge of developing these tools providing greater anticipation of such evolution while taking us through today’s shift to digital technologies.
Its role is to run the R&D programmes that are directly linked to the business activities of each unit.
The specific nature of each site’s operational safety requirements means that time after time, we have to develop uncommon applications.
Our R&D projects are part of a continuous support and improvement approach aimed to improve the reliability of our clients’ facilities.
