Digital Engineering

In a context of digitalisation of the product and its simulation process to speed up the design process, the Digital Engineering gathers tools and methodologies associated to the analysis (design and simulation) of the product and its manufacturing processes, and associated to data and information management overall the product lifecycle.

Geometric modelling for the digital mock-up

The general objective of our current research projects is first to improve the performances in terms of analysis and solving of 3D geometric problems, and second to generalise our current purely geometric modelling to all physical phenomenon common in mechatronic engineering.


Engineering of Mechatronic systems

Mmechatronic systems integrate technologies coming from computer science, mechanical engineering, electronics and control. The evolution of the technology created these complex systems that improve efficiency and add functionalities and running life in lots of applications. The general objective is so to carry out multi-physics models and to use simulation, and especially digital prototyping, in the design phase of the system, to decrease costs inherent to real prototypes and to increase quality of the systems. 


Design and Optimisation of Industrial Systems

Our research activities focus on synchronizing decisions of Design and Production, by synchronizing PLM decisions with ERP and APS ones (logistics of design) by defining decision models adapted to the design automation by modelling and solving integrated design problems of product/supply chain , and by assessing robustness and stability of such networks.


Eco-Design and Product optimisation

Our research activity aims at developing methodological elements that contribute to a multi-criteria optimisation of the product during the design phase. The works in the domain of eco-design allow a better integration of all environmental impacts in the product design, with the use of approaches like Design for Remanufacturing, Design for Recycling, Eco-innovation, Eco-QFD, Social LCA, … For the aspects of system modelling and optimisation, we focus on the use of CSP (Constraint Satisfaction Problem) approaches during the collaborative product design process, from the choice of architecture to the definition, the dimensioning and the global optimisation of the final artefact.
