Future Processing chosen by Valeo to conduct Analysis & Design and development of a brand new Europe-wide system
Founded in 1923, Valeo is one of the first automobile equipment suppliers in the world and a partner to all automakers worldwide. As a technology company, Valeo proposes innovative products and systems that contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions and to the development of intuitive driving.
In 2016, the Group generated sales of €16.5 billion. Valeo has 155 production units, 58 research & development centres, 15 distribution platforms, and employs 91,800 people in 32 countries worldwide.
In January 2016, Future Processing started a cooperation with Valeo Electric and Electronic Systems which belongs to the Thermal Systems and Powertrain Systems Business Groups and is based in southern Poland.
Future Processing was tasked with conducting analysis and providing specification for a brand new, internal system which will be used by Valeo employees all over Europe. The specification document was based on knowledge gathered during two series of workshops that took place in France, in the physical location where several processes crucial to the system are conducted, and in Poland where the new solution concept was discussed and developed.
Knowledge acquired during these workshops, with constant input from the main stakeholders, was the basis for designing a solution answering both the business’ and the end users’ needs. The aim of the Analysis & Design phase was to support the ongoing business process with new, efficient solutions designed from scratch to improve it, but also ensuring that they respect good practices that have been developed over the years.
The second part of the project – the development of the system, started in September 2016.
