Our R&D activities

Sherpa Engineering has always invested in the development of its technical competences. Our engineers are highly skilled thanks to a comprehensive program of knowledge management and improvement.

We have gained a solid expertise in our core business thanks to hundreds of industrial projects and to numerous R&D projects.

We are convinced that innovation is a key factor to succeed in our highly technological environment. Our methodologies and our tools must quickly evolve to bring cutting edge solutions to our customers.

We have established partnerships with the important French research clusters: System@tic, Mov’eo and Astech. We also collaborate with academic and industrial institutions in several European and French projects such as ADN4SE, AMBER-ULV, EDONA, E’MOTIVE and MODRIO.

Since 2012 we have put in place a common laboratory with the CEA-LIST to join efforts to develop a specialized modeling tool for system engineering projects. This tool is called PhiSystem and is now part of our software suite. PhiSystem, which is based on SysML, brings innovative features when developing architecture models for complex systems.

We are a founding member of IRT SystemX (Instituts de Recherche Technologique). IRT SystemX is a French organization that aims at becoming a worldwide leader in digital engineering.
