to an optimization process including integration of
skills and technologies and miniaturization where
This collective design approach based on functions,
is leading to complex and efficient systems,
characterized by motion capability and intelligence,
including potentially Mechanics, actuators,
Electronics and Software.

Mixing skills and technologies at their respective scale for design optimization, Mechatronics and MicroTechnics have nowadays become especially fashion in our modern world, highlighting performances, intelligence and miniaturization.
Initially motivated by moving a mechanism, Mechatronics naturally came down to the introduction of sensors, actuators and driving Electronic around a Mechanical construction.
Nowadays, responding to a deeper optimization purpose, the process and composition is much more subtle and sophisticated, requiring discipline, reflection and coordination. For instance, here is a reminder of fundamental good practices:
> Preparation ahead (scope, specifications, functional analysis)
> Project Management high level (wide vision, coordination of players, planning)
> Transverse Organization and Synergies (communication between core businesses, experience feedback, progress sharing)
> Reflection force focused on functions and processes (technological and economical optimization)
> Design complexity Control (harmonization, appreciation of general reliability and safety)
Real opportunity for progressing and standing out from the competition, Mechatronics and MicroTechnics are giving key advantages, starting with Innovation and Performances, and continuing with Intelligence, Economical aspect and Safety.
+ Innovation : open mind, new synergies, skills cluster, focus on functions, tuning, customization.
+ Performances : summary, engineering, perfecting, maturity, accuracy, efficiency, miniaturization, scalable.
+ User Friendly : communication (mobility, connectivity), interactions (ergonomics, control, display), intelligence (embedded software).
+ Economical : clustering, harmonization, industrialization, design control (relevancy, compliance, risk and cost analyses).
+ Quality-Safety : project management, design control (reviews, justification), supervision (check, feedback, monitoring, warning).
Examples and accomplishments are resolutely entering our daily life : in medical there are active implants (like artificial heart) or surgery assistance instruments, in robotics there are automatic mowers or drones, in telecommunication there are smart phones or LiFi lighting (LED communication).
Promoting its polyvalence and microtechnical culture, enhanced with a meticulous project management and a talented partnership, ALCYM is naturally proficient to handle such complex and innovative design compositions, contributing to unrivalled products and new added value.
