Our expertise

Systems Engineering and Architecture

CESAMES implements engineering and systems architecture skills as well as business transformation

The major cornerstone that structures and ensures substantive consistency of all of our services is the CESAM methodological architecture and engineering framework. CESAMES consultant-architects apply engineering and system architecture skills as well as business architecture and transformation which are based on this methodological framework. Our intervention models make it possible, in addition, to structure, make reproducible and manage in configuration and improvement the form and manner of intervention with which we organize our missions.

In addition, CESAMES implements a product policy that monitors all of our markets and proposes adaptations of our intervention models and methods in order to always be at the forefront of our markets.

Our methodological framework of architecture and engineering CESAM

The CESAM framework for the architecture of complex systems “CESAMES Systems Architecting Method” (CESAM) is a framework for the architecture and modeling of systems, developed since 2003 in close interaction with major industrial players. This framework, intended for system architects, engineers and designers, aims to help them better master the complex integrated systems on which they work on a daily basis. CESAMES uses this framework and the related tools to structure and ensure consistency in the substance of all of its services. This architectural framework, which can be used by all members of the CESAM community, is developed through the animation of CESAMES in community mode and is also enriched each year by contributions. Finally, it should be noted that mastering the socio-technical dimension of system projects, i.e. the relationship between project and product systems, is one of the strengths of the CESAMES approach.
