GPX® Concept - In order to address your challenges, we capitalize on 3 complementary means:

  • Guess- the ability of the experts to propose, anticipate, imagine… some routes or performances
  • Predictive Simulation – for a better understanding of your process to anticipate issues and make rational decisions
  • eXperimental data – the hard foundation of the project, which needs to be well targeted, structured and analyzed.
