Sylvain CHABROUX, graduated System Design Engineer from UTBM, began his professional career in 2000 in the automotive field by prototyping the "Stop & Start" function for PSA Peugeot Citroën and the development of 1.5L DCi Diesel Engine Controls for Renault.

With this proven experience across V cycle, he developed a requirements repository for Faurecia. This knowledge base is used to specify innovative systems.

Following this experience in Requirements Engineering and convinced of the Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) value, he has developed and deployed, for a software publisher, Meta-models apply to industrial like EDF, STMicroelectronics, Renault or PSA Peugeot Citroën. Those R&D works reconciling the functional and dysfunctional systems vision resulted in several publications in international conferences including CSD&M.

Today, he is System Engineering Technical Manager at LGM where he provides technological intelligence on methods and tools in this discipline. He coaches company’s consultants and supports major industry actors such as RATP, DGA and Ineo Defense in the implementation of specification, design, validation methods and product data management.



Alain Dauron graduated Engineer from Ecole Polytechnique in 1984 and then obtained a PhD degree at Université de Paris IX Dauphine in the area of Automatic Control applied to internal combustion engine. It was his first job as a Renault research engineer, in the framework of a collaboration with INRIA (Institut National de la Recherche en Informatique et Automatique). He then built and led a research group in charge of Automatic control activities for R&AE projects. After moving to Powertrain Engineering division in 1998, he had several management positions in Powertrain Control development and tuning activities, and then he became Department leader of powertrain control systems. Coming back to advanced engineering in 2007, he led the upstream Systems Engineering department, aiming at applying SE in R&AE projects and at improving SE methods & tools. From 2011 to 2013, he also led a Research project about long range mobility based on Electric Vehicle.

He is now General Manager in charge of Systems Engineering processes, methods and tools. His main interests in Systems Engineering are Requirements engineering, Systems V&V, SE in the context of large product lines, MBSE, and coupling of SE with calculation/optimization. He represents Renault in the AFIS (French INCOSE Chapter) Board of Directors, and is one of the two co-chairs of the INCOSE Automotive Working Group


Jeremy DICK

Dr Jeremy Dick received BSc and DPhil degrees in Computing Science from Imperial College, London. With a background in formal methods, he has worked as a consultant in the requirements engineering domain for nearly 20 years, first with QSS, Telelogic and Integrate, and now with SyntheSys System Engineers Ltd.

His roles have afforded him a broad exposure to requirements management practices and issues across many industry sectors. Recent work has included 3 years as part of the requirements team in a major UK defence programme applying Evidence-base Development, in the rail sector with the UK HS2 project and in the civil nuclear sector with Sellafield.

Co-author of a Springer book entitled “Requirements Engineering”, Jeremy has been an advocate of tool-supported requirements processes for many years. Known for his work on traceability, he coined the term “rich traceability” for the concept of traceability rationale. These principles have evolved into the concept of “Evidence-based Development”, which is one of his current interests. He is also a past chair of the INCOSE Requirements Working Group.


Jean-Paul FARDEL

Jean-Paul FARDEL is in charge of the System Engineering Processes, Methods and Tools (SE PMT) support team in Airbus Safran Launchers, in particular for Requirements Engineering processes, System Verification and Validation processes, functional & avionic architecture modelling processes and System data Management processes. His team supports the Operational and Business directorates to define the processes to be used in the context of the development of complex systems and drives the parametrization of the corresponding COTS tools with the IM directorate.

He previously worked in former Airbus Defence and Space company in the development of a database to manage the flight data (from civil and military launchers). He also worked in the ATV program for which he was in charge of the test platforms & means configuration and of the support of the functional test engineering activities.

He contributed, at AIRBUS group, to the definition of policies and handbooks relative to System Engineering topics.

He collaborated with Gauthier FANMUY, in the frame of AFIS, to the writing of guidelines regarding Requirements Engineering and how to write effective stakeholder needs.


Nicolas GUEIT

Nicolas GUEIT started at Safran – Hispano-Suiza in the control systems architecture teams after a master in Systems engineering in Paris. He has worked on the control systems architecture of the SaM146 and Silvercrest engines for 6 years.

He is now in charge of the systems engineering methods and tools at Safran – Snecma and a systems engineering expert. He is deploying RBE and MBSE within the R&D teams.
