Master plan for the migration of control-command systems :

Completion of a strategic master plan aimed at defining a 15-year roadmap for migrating all the control systems at one of their sites (19 systems). The control-command systems currently in place are obsolete, heterogeneous and present potential risks in terms of Cybersecurity.

Mission statement :

  • Precise inventory of the existing situation,
    Rating of levels of technological obsolescence,
  • Identification of Key Business Driver – KBD technical, business, financial, innovation, industry 4.0 – important for each of the departments impacted by the project (Production, Maintenance, IT, Quality, Finance, Management, etc.),
  • Study of possible migration solutions taking into account the lifespan of the production units,
  • Proposals for functional add-ons to make this project risky and pure expense without return on investment into a project with added value for Sanofi: Help with troubleshooting and predictive maintenance, Digital twinning for qualification and training, Better data analysis and reduction of non-production time, Zero paper…
  • Risk Analysis and Pharmaceutical Qualification Strategy aimed at minimising the impact on production during migrations
  • Investment budget
  • Strategic roadmap for deployment and financing over 15 years

Special features :

  • Value analysis / Risk analysis / Strategic KBD / Rating / Qualification strategy / Investment roadmap
  • Cybersecurity / Industry 4.0

Energy Excellence

As a world leader in the pharmaceutical industry, our client entrusted us, through its Manufacturing Excellence Department, whose mission is to set the company on the road to the industry of the future 4.0, with a scoping study on the optimisation of energy consumption at more than 70 production sites around the world.

This preliminary study focused on a use case for deploying a technological solution for collecting energy consumption data on any site, then analysing this Big Data and making decision-support dashboards available to the various departments.

Main missions :

  • Orientation: needs and requirements, constraints and limitations
  • Site audit, data collection and analysis – benchmark (products / needs)
  • Scenario study
  • Evaluation criteria, decision support
