A team of qualified experts ready to help

NOVAE has the capacity to assign experienced technicians of varying profiles to its customers in the studies and design phase of their projects, whether through technical support or a period of secondment at their premises, in particular:

Design Engineer

As an engineering expert, the Design Engineer excels in advanced structure analysis. With high-level material and thermal mechanics skills, he/she anticipates drawbacks and optimizes designs.

Its capacity to interpret the results of simulations guides the development process, ensuring robust and effective solutions.

Digital Simulation Engineer

As an advanced simulations expert, this engineer pushes the boundaries of innovation. He/she uses cutting-edge tools to model complex scenarios in order to assess the performance of systems in a variety of conditions.

His/her work helps to accelerate the prototyping phase and to guarantee optimized products.

IVVQ Engineer

Tasked with system integration, verification, validation and qualification, this engineer makes sure that each component operates harmoniously.

Adopting a pragmatic approach, NOVAE guarantees compliant solutions to minimize risks and assure the highest quality throughout the development process.

Draftsman Designer

Creative and exacting, draftsmen-designers play a crucial role in turning ideas into reality. Using CAD software, they transform concepts into detailed drawings, providing essential guides to implement projects.

His/her attention to detail and its in-depth understanding of industrial standards guarantees accurate results that meet requirements.

What are the objectives of the studies and design phase?

This phase is crucial as it is used to plan, design and specify the key elements of the project before its implementation.

Below are the main goals of this phase:

Definition of objectives and requirements

The studies and design phase begins with the clarification of the project’s objectives and requirements to which it must respond. This phase often includes discussions with stakeholders to understand their needs and expectations.

Production of a prototype

Based on the defined objectives, this phase involves the creation of an initial project concept. This can include sketches, diagrams and preliminary drawings that will be used as a basis for future development.

Identification of drawbacks and risks

The studies and the design can identify potential drawbacks such as budget, time and regulatory constraints, etc. In addition, risks associated with the project are assessed, and mitigation plans are drawn up.


The studies and design phase establishes the basis for project planning. It includes defining the project stages, estimating lead times, allocating resources, and identifying critical milestones.

Detailed design

As the phase progresses, project design becomes increasingly complex. This may include detailed engineering drawings, technical specifications, feasibility analyses, etc.


The results of the studies and design phase are often subjected to validation processes, which may involve reviews by experts, simulations, feasibility tests, etc., to make sure that the concept is viable and that it meets requirements.


During this phase, the initial concept is tweaked and optimized based on feedback, and on any drawbacks and opportunities identified. The aim is to optimize the design to achieve the best results possible.

In summary, the study and design phase aims to establish a solid foundation on which to build the project, through the clear definition of objectives, the design of pertinent solutions, the identification of risks and drawbacks, and the drawing up of detailed plans. This phase is essential in minimizing risks and costs, whilst ensuring the overall success of the project.
