NADCAP, certiIcation of
Milan
Hugo and Maxime have accepted the challenge by opening the Milan and Toulouse branches!
By opening its 21st et 22nd branches in Toulouse and Milan, agap2 reas-serts its French and foreign develop-ment ambitions. These two openings also reect our desire to offer our employees new opportunities and to encourage in-house geographical mobility. At the helm, Maxime and Hugo, who after only a few years with agap2, were offered the opportunity to open a branch.
A born entrepreneur, Hugo has alwaysdreamt of starting his own company. For six months, Hugo worked on a
project for opening a branch in Italy, a European country in which we were not as yet represented. A few months after having presented his project to Management, and not speaking a word of Italian, Hugo set off to open the Milan branch : “We are already working with a number of Italian customers, we needed a proximity branch to strengthen our links and to develop strategic partnerships with all our international customers.»
Maxime joined agap2 in 2016 as a Business Manager at the Lyon branch.
An agapian European Cross-Triathlon Champion
He is the pride of the whole team! Maxime, Business Manager at agap2 for the past 2 years, won the European Cross-Triath-lon Championship last October in Ibiza. 1 hour and 28 minutes. This is the time that Maxime took to cover the 1 km swim, 20 km mountain bike and 7 km trail run. This excellent performance won him the îrst place and title of European Champion in the 25-29 years age group. “I’m very satisîed with this îrst place, though I wasn’t expecting it. I was on form on D-day; I took the lead during the bike race and managed to maintain this position until the end.” declared Maxime, who already has a îne record. Next goal: South Africa! We will support him in his participation in the emblematic Cape Epic race in March 2019.

Toulouse
He rapidly grasped the workings of the trade and his excellent results rapidly opened the way to new res-ponsibilities and to the position of De-partment Manager. Less than 2 years after his arrival, he was called upon to open the new Toulouse branch. “agap2 trusted me and I accepted this new challenge. We are very proud to start the adventure with an extremely motivated team. We invite all aga-pians motivated by projects in Sou-th-Western France to contact us.”
Back to school – Our teams working closely with students
Since the start of the year, more than one event per week has been organised nationwide in schools: seminars, înal year project panels, tech-nical conferences, coaching aperitifs, etc. These meetings are also an opportunity for our consul-tants to stay in touch with their alma mater.
Several managers offer coaching sessions and share their experience with future engineers (possible future agapians?). Congratulations to all for the success of these initiatives. Would you also like to do more? Contact Lisa in charge of HR development,lisa.rosemond@agap2.fr

The world’s largest telescope breaks ground
In 2024, the Extremely Large Telescope, in the Chilean Atacama desert, will become the largest eye on the sky. In May 2017, Safran REOSC, world leader in astronomical optics, won the contract for the polishing, mounting and testing of all segments forming the M1 primary mirror of the ELT. Nicolas, after having spent 5 years in the aero-space-defence sector and 10 years in the medical devices sector, joined agap2 as a Systems Engineer to work on this extraordinary project.
A 39-metre diameter primary mirror Named ELT (Extremely Large Teles-cope), it will be the îrst and largest of the new generation of giant telescopes. Built at an altitude of 3,046 metres, it will allow signiîcant astronomical pro-gress, allowing in particular the detailed study of objects such as exoplanets (planets orbiting stars other than the Sun).
The telescope’s concept is based on a 39 metre diameter primary mirror. As it cannot be built in one piece, it consists of 798 hexagonal mirrors (also known as segments).
Diagram: Each colour represents one 1.5 metre hexagonal mirror.
Each of these mirrors must be adjus-table relative to the others: they are
agaptuality| n°22 | january 2019
thus mounted on a system for adjusting the mirror itself, along with its position relative to the others.
An unprecedented level of precision The level of complexity of each seg-ment is such that very few optics ma-nufacturers are capable of polishing and inspecting them. SAFRAN REOSC is a member of this select group. In this speciîc case however, the number of mirrors to be produced signiîcantly ex-ceeds the usual context of REOSC’s ac-tivities. To produce the primary mirror, a complete plant had to be built, with dedicated production and inspection equipment. The required degree of pre-cision is one nanometre (1 billionth of a metre) over a 1.5 m wide surface. As a comparison, it’s like controlling ground
height to within 1 mm over the entire French territory!
For this, the surfaces must be very pre-cisely polished, constantly ensuring the correct path: a small amount of mate-rial is removed, precision is checked, then polishing continues only where necessary. To meet the demands of the project, REOSC realized that numerous machines needed to be developed and arranged coherently within the plant. My work thus consisted in implemen-ting requirements management tools enabling each machine Manager to fo-cus on its development, while ensuring overall consistency. I joined agap2 speciîcally for this project, which combines fundamen-tal research, industry and innovation within a human-sized entity. REOSC illustrates this challenge well: “Gazing at the stars with our feet îrmly on the ground is what drives me each day.“

Management of radioactive waste storage
PROJEÉCDTITSO
Nuclear-based electricity production generates radioactive waste. The most hazardous of this waste cannot be stored in surface or near-surface facilities due to their high radioactivity levels. François, a planning engineer, has been working for the past year on the FD (înal design) phase of a new reversible deep storage centre intended to hold waste derived from depleted nuclear fuel processing.
A project in the industrial design phase I am currently working on the FD phase for this nuclear waste burial centre. For geological reasons, it was decided to bury the waste in a homogeneous and very stable geological layer im-permeable both to radionuclides and water. For the past 20 years, this geolo-gical layer has been studied and tested by a laboratory. It is located at a depth of 500 metres. To move the radioactive nuclear waste from reception to storage in a safe manner for the human opera-tors, some sections will be fully auto-mated, with no human presence.
The project is currently in the industrial design phase. The main challenges are the technical and political validation, followed by the continuation, construc-tion and operation of this project. Work
agaptuality| n°22 | january 2019
could start as early as 2021, for a centre opening in pilot phase in 2025, followed by receipt of the initial waste around 2030.
A reversible storage solution Most of the waste concerned by project CIGEO has already been produced, or corresponds to French nuclear power plants currently in operation. Thus, the role of this project is not to serve as a pretext for the creation of new power plants, but rather a storage solution for existing waste.
As more effective processing techno-logies may emerge, storage must be reversible. In other words, throughout operation (approximately 100 years), it must be possible to remove and reco-ver the waste in order to process IT in a different manner.
Project management expertise This project is fascinating by its size, diversity and îelds of expertise that it involves. In light of its size, the project has been broken down into several different competencies, hence the pre-sence of multiple sub-system project managements overseen by a system project management. In this context, I am in charge of the schedule for one of the sub-system project managements and I generate the contractually re-quired schedule documents. The scope of my work was recently extended as I took on a “system” role. In other words, I now supervise the productions of other sub-systems relativeto the îrst one.

Implementation of a visual inspection system to better monitor packaging
As a blood diagnostics system specialist, Abbott Diagnostics needed to improve its in-process control of pro-ducts, particularly its camera-based vision control system used to check the information printed on the vial labels and packaging. Joachim, Project Engineer, was entrusted with the implementation of a new production line visual inspection system.
100% reliable quality control Abbott Diagnostics îll and înish blood test vials under stringently controlled conditions. The project on which I am working focuses speciîcally on the îni-shing operations (îlling, labelling, prin-ting, camera-based inspection and vial packaging).
The expansion of their product range, with DataMatrix code and additional information on the bottle and packa-ging labels (bar code and typeface) required, means that the quality of pro-duct inspection should be improved on two existing îlling and labelling lines with direct labelling. For this, a Mett-ler Toledo CI-Vision system has been implemented for 100% reliable quality control. The system checks the 1D and 2D codes, markings, expiration dates, batch numbers and texts. It is also ca-pable of checking packaging charac-teristics such as the seal, along with cap position or colour. System and test upgrades, qualiîcation and validation activity implementation, along with
agaptuality| n°22 | january 2019juillet 2018
launch and initial production support, remain to be performed.
BackItting in the context of serialisation As of 2019, each new box of medici-nal product prescribed in Europe must bear a unique identiîcation number in order to ensure the traceability of me-dicines. All manufacturers must place a DataMatrix identiîer on each box of medicinal product and save all codes in a central database. This information veriîcation improvement project is thus part of the backîtting process with: the EU directive on counterfeiting, the drug supply chain security act (DSCSA), along with other international pharma-ceutical safety regulations pertaining to serialisation, monitoring and traceabi-lity.
Planning, qualiIcation tests As Project Engineer, I am in charge of all planning activities. In order to upgrade the labelling and visual inspection sys-tem, I had to coordinate the removal of
the old inspection system and ma-nage the installation of the new sys-tem: factory acceptance tests, site acceptance tests (SAT), implementa-tion of directives (GMP, FDA, Abbott internal) for correct and high-quality camera-based inspection (bar code and typeface), preparation of qualiî-cation documents for QR, IQ, OQ and PQ (protocols and test plans), imple-mentation of qualiîcation and docu-mentation circuits, along with launch and production assistance.
Thanks to this experience acquired in a high-quality, precise and deman-ding work environment, I was able to gain an understanding of GMP-based company operation in the various departments and to work in a team comprised of various divisions (aga-pians and Abbott employees).

CESAME : «Concrétiser Ensemble les Suggestions d’Amélioration d’Exploitation»*
In 2013, the Axens group implemented a Lean Management system called AXIIS (AXens Improvement Industrial System). Pascal P., Continuous Improvement Technician, is also the Cesame Project manager. He tells us about the implementation and success of this process that allows teams in the îeld to submit suggestions for improvement and, potentially, to see the corresponding work be rapidly and transparently implemented. Maxence T., agap2 Consultant and Project Leader at Axens, contributed signiîcantly the success of this project during the design and implementation
How was the continuous improvement approach in place at Axens put into practice? P.P. : In 2015, a Performance Cell was created at the Salindres site (three people). The purpose of this cell was to implement operational excellence me-thods aimed at setting up concrete ac-tions to improve economic and mana-gerial performance: safety conditions, product quality, production line produc-tivity and yield, organisational clarity and efîciency, training, along with staff empowerment and commitment. In this context, in January 2017 we launched the CESAME project, “Concrétiser En-semble les Suggestions d’Amélioration d’Exploitation” (accomplishing together the operational improvement sugges-tions), which consists in implementing a system for processing improvement sug-
gestions submitted by the production and logistics teams.
How do you cooperate on a daily basis with the teams in the Ield? P.P.: The process is based on trans-parency and information of the teams concerned. In concrete terms, if an ope-rator has an idea for solving a problem or improving an operation, he/she drafts an improvement proposal on a sugges-tion sheet. This proposal is then exa-mined by the CESAME team, consisting of the various managers, the MO (modi-îcation ofîcer), the CO (chief operator) and operators present. The proposed solution is either “accepted” or “rejec-ted”. In addition to transparency and infor-mation, we need clear and rapid dy-namics for suggestion examination,

agap2 expertise
Maxence T., agap2 consultant, supports Axens in its approach to continuous improvement as Project leader with the performance cell.
Like the Project manager, the Project leader is responsible for executing the project, or for a given mission in its entirety (steering, budget, technical,
agaptuality| n°22 | january 2019
etc.). He is also responsible, for the Inancial, contractual and commercial dimension of the project. Virtually all sectors employ Project leaders. Though we possess generalist skills, we are nevertheless specialists. My projects focus on Mechanical, Sheet metal, Piping and Civil engineering aspects. Depending on the complexity and scope of the project, I surround myself with a team possessing the
costing and implementation follow-up. This has been the role of Maxence T., CESAME MO (Modiîcation ofîcer), since September 2017.
What are the results of the implemen-tation of such a system? P.P. :Currently, more than 80% of sug-gestions made by our teams have been implemented, or will be over the coming months. Maxence has contributed si-gniîcantly to the success of this project, which is now an integral part of our es-tablished and efîcient processes that are highly appreciated by our teams in the îeld. Moreover, the project was rewarded internally by the “Bravos”, a ceremony consisting in thanking certain employees for their accomplishments and for the success of their projects. 8 people were thus rewarded: 7 AXENS workers and Maxence.
skills required to complete it. All companies are currently seeking to improve their efIciency or yield at all levels and are implementing Lean Management, or “anti-waste” policies. I thus provide Axens with common sense support in various projects, in order to offer simple and effective solutions.

Anne and Noëlle bring culture to life at agap2 Paris
the agapians also attended a conference on “invisible” disa-bility. Indeed, most disabilities are not apparent. For example, only 2% of people with disabilities are wheelchair-bound.
agaptuality| n°22 | january 2019
Since his arrival at Le Creusot, he has taken up boxing. After training for only three months, he is already îghting for the title of Champion of Burgundy in the “elite amateur” category, alongside some very experienced competitors. Impressive progress, made possible thanks to intensive and regular training: 8 to 9 times per week. And what does the customer think? “My colleagues have grown accustomed to seeing me come in on a Monday morning with a black eye. My Manager is very understanding, allowing me to adapt my working hours so that I can continue training.”
They explained why, despite their disability, they were able to push their performance to the extent that they became champions in their disciplines. To counter misconceptions,
The agapians ended the evening with a role-play by playing wheelchair tennis, during which they discovered the difîcul-ties faced by people with disabilities. We would like to thank employees for coming in large numbers and taking part in this unprecedented evening at agap2. We hope to be able to organise further events of this type, and hence to conti-nue raising disability awareness.
Disability must not impede success or performance. This is the message we wished to spread to agapians during a di-sability awareness-raising evening organised on 18 Octo-ber 2018 in Paris. This was evidenced by the career of two paralympic champions, Michaël Jemeriasz and Charlotte Fairbank, who accepted to share their experience with the agapians.
Nearly 44 works of art are currently exhibited at the agap2 Paris branch. 2018 has focused on rediscovering these artworks. Guided torch tour, pa-per chase, presentation of new pur-chases, the events were only equalled by the enthusiastic teams. We have carte blanche for deîning visit types and we are overowing with creativity. Our credo? Amaze! And we have plenty of projects for 2019.
IN SHORT...
Want 2 Be an Engineer ?
Because innovation is our DNA and together we can build a dream, connect people and leave our mark. This is one of the many messages conveyed by our new recruit-ment campaign, that will be launched in January 2019.
This campaign will focus on several videos: a new one-minute promotional clip and a “Want 2 be an engineer?” presentation video highlighting the career of an agap2 consultant. Intellectual and geographical mobility, project quality, proximity, etc. will be amongst the many assets highlighted through this campaign.
Because you are our best ambassadors, the campaign will also include a series of short îlms in which our consultants talk passionately about their projects. We would like to thank all those who took part in the creation and completion of this campaign, available from January on our social networks!
