  • During the year 2013 the missions of measuring and testing took me in France, Mexico, Brazil, Tunisia, Canada and the United States. They allowed me to increase my experience in the integration of test benches in the mass production lines and test systems technical audit. And it's always a pleasure to meet various stakeholders, engineers and management teams from different sectors, different countries and communicate in different languages ​​(English, French, Spanish and Portuguese). Here's the list of my activities in 2013: Testing process audit into a xDSL modem repair center, defining solutions to establish, develop the new process, the layout […]
  • For this project, my client asked me to increase the capacity of their test suites for your after-sales service: going from 500 units daily to 2500 units per day (units here are modems ADSL / VDSL telephone, HPNA, WIFI , WAN, Ethernet and USB.) Using benchmarks aftermarket in this case is to analyse and give a diagnosis to replace defective components and then verify that the repair has solved the problem. Analysis To optimize the test suites in the best way, the analysis is essential to decide what to do I found several factors that limited the ability.: too many […]
  • The projects were exciting for 2012. Anyway I did 160 000 km by plane to see my clients: going a week in a country, 3 weeks in this one, 2 weeks in this city, but in total it is 6 months of business trips to share techniques and friendships (behind the technique there is always the human). This year I enjoyed sharing my experience, working beyond my expertise to give the best to support my clients in difficulties, improving processes at the level of software and hardware and analysing the procedures to propose changes to solve the problems, speak four […]
  • To start the year 2012 nothing better than to do the recap of last year 2011 as an independent engineer: Trainer for LabVIEW, TestStand and LabWindows/CVI for various sectors of industrial, scientific and military activities.

Technical intervention to improve cosmetology and pharmacology clinical study system (LabVIEW) Improvement of a thermodynamic principles bench study applied to refrigeration (LabVIEW real-time and embedded WEB server) Implementation of Modbus-TCP instruments measurements on Ethernet network and radio for the analysis of energy consumption in buildings and […]
  • This time, the conference was not about control and measurement with LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI or TestStand but on particle accelerators in medicine for the treatment of cancer and especially the applications of synchrotron radiation to observe proteins and different mechanisms operating at the end of active use in future nanotechnology based drugs. Where does the idea of ​​this issue? I play accessory to give synchrotron "Soleil", south of Paris, operated by the CNRS (French National Center of Scientific Research) and the CEA (atomic energy commission) to optimize measurements in a beam line. Conference "Particle accelerator: the future medical lights" during the […]
  • It was a pleasure to give a conference about industrial and scientific systems of National Instruments during the international conferences in telematics engineering at the Polytechnic University of Durango, Mexico. During one hour I developed the theme of "LabVIEW Embedded systems for the variables monitoring": definition of what are the control, monitoring, simulation, test and measurement, a demonstration of programming with LabVIEW, a live video with my client at the Raspail Institute of Paris in France, to describe a cooling system using components from National Instruments and an embedded LabVIEW software I developed, to demonstrate the capabilities of remote control […]
