About the OMILAB Node

Hosted and Powered by Mines Saint-Etienne research centers, the French OMILAB Node is a collaborative platform for industrial and academics to develop together education material, proofs of concepts, and applied for research advances on digitalization and servitization for the industry of the future. While offering a strong background of expertise on Industry of the Future and Enterprise Modelling and Engineering methods, Mines Saint-Etienne has developed (i) specific Modelling methods to support the design of smart PSS as well as (ii) a set of educational tools and offers for industrial vocational training in the field of industry of the Future. Mines Saint-Etienne provides strong expertise and support to industrial in the field of industrial Business Model changes, to integrate the key added-value of the industry of the Future.

Competences

Enterprise Modelling and Engineering, Smart PSS Design and Engineering, Industrial Business Model Transformation

About the Hosting Organisation

Established in 1816, and part of the French « Grandes Ecoles » system the Ecole des Mines (EMSE) ensures 3 key missions: education, research, and dedication to economic development. Education is based on a well-balanced blend of scientific core subjects, engineering techniques, and economic and human sciences taught by professors closely related to the economic world. The graduates from EMSE have been at the forefront of technological progress in the whole industry, in France and abroad. EMSE has opened its horizons to international partnerships with 35 countries in Europe, Asia, North and South America. Today, École des Mines has more than 80 academic partners worldwide, 19 double-diploma agreements as part of its Executive Engineering degree program, and research partnerships with the world’s top universities.

  • 2 campuses: Saint-Étienne near Lyon and Gardanne near Marseille
  • 480 graduate students in 3 classes of the School’s signature diploma (Master degree of Science and Engineering)
  • 1,120 graduate students in 4 classes of the School’s specialized engineering diplomas
  • 180 doctoral students (40% from abroad)
  • Students from more than 20 countries
  • 300 scientific staff members

Through several national and international projects, EMSE is currently developing strong research expertise and strategy on Factory of the Future and develops integrated methodologies, modelling environment and decision-making supports for industry 4.0 in general and the transition towards PSS and industrial digitalization in particular.

NEMO Summer School

The NEMO Summer School Series focuses on addressing these challenges through modelling, both in theory and practice. How to define modeling with the ‘right’ level of abstraction and how to engineer suitable modeling tools is at the heart of the summer school. Teacher. Boucher regularly gives teaching at NEMO summershool, notably in the field of manufacturing systems and Smart Product Service Systems.
