What is consultancy?

Based on a mission order, the ELSYS Design engineers join the customers’ development teams and make their know-how available to them.

They generally work on customer premises and perform the tasks specified in a document called a service order, which serves as a basis for monthly invoicing.

They can also work remotely, from our design centers in Serbia for example, and we then talk about “time-based” intervention mode.

To note that when working under the consultancy mode, the ELSYS Design engineers remain at all time under the hierarchical responsibility of their business manager.

Consultancy and complex systems engineering

Consultancy is very flexible. It makes it possible to adapt to projects whose workload is progressive, difficult to predict and which therefore necessitates permanent adjustments.

Consultancy / time-based offer can for example be used at the beginning of a collaboration, when the boundary of the tasks, milestones and responsibilities cannot clearly be defined prior to the start of the project.

Based on a consultancy mode, the ELSYS Design engineers can join a project at all stages:

  • Needs and feasibility study
  • Technical and functional specifications
  • General and detailed design
  • Development
  • Unit tests
  • Integration tests
  • Validation
  • Support
  • Maintenance

Operational Engineers

The ELSYS Design engineers are immediately operational, trained and supervised. They are selected by business managers, who are themselves former engineers, using both technical and human criteria.

Thus, whether the projects are short or long-term, whether they are carried out by a small or large team, ELSYS Design proposes its clients consulting services adapted to their needs.

Work follow up

During projects, follow-up meetings are regularly carried out by the ELSYS Design business managers, both with their clients and their engineers.

The aim is to ensure that everything goes well, both at the technical and human levels, to anticipate or resolve any difficulties, and to make the necessary adjustments to the evolution of the projects.

Geographic proximity

To provide a local service to its customers based in France, the ELSYS Design organization is based on local agencies in the cities of Paris (headquarters), Rennes, Nantes, Grenoble, Lyon, Aix-en-Provence, Sophia-Antipolis and Toulouse.

We also have 2 design centers in Serbia (Belgrade and Novi Sad) and a subsidiary in the Silicon Valley (Sunnyvale).

The ELSYS Design consultancy services in complex systems is the result of almost 20 years of experience in implementing solutions in response to customer needs.
