FTZ participates to Ariane 6 project with the CNES company
Through its technical expertise center , the CNES (National Center for Space Studies) plays a key role on the French and international space field.
In addition to scientific missions, CNES company works in collaboration with Ariane Espace and the European Space Agency (ESA), to access to space, particularly with launchers from Kourou space center.
The company is currently involved in the development of the new Ariane 6 launcher.
These launchers require numerous P&ID (piping and instrumentation diagram) for the installation building and to manage their evolutions.
As the previous software who manages P&IDs has become obsolete, the CNES sites in Toulouse and Kourou have been equipped with SchemPID software to maintain the existing launcher pads and to develop future launcher pads.
In close collaboration with CNES, FTZ has transferred existing data and developed specific functions into SchemPID to match perfectly with the specific needs of CNES company. The CNES teams use SchemPID daily to maintain the old facilities and to define the new installations in a process of best quality.
On the other hand, several subcontractors have been equipped with SchemELECT CAD software to provide the electrical drawings and loop diagrams.
