Engineers, new technologies and working methods – InformatiqueNews


Two out of three engineers work part of their time outside of a traditional office or as the site and 14% devote a quarter of their time.

This is what reveals the 2015 edition of the survey IESF (Engineers and Scientists of France) that shows how work patterns have changed in recent years with the availability of new technologies

Two populations can be distinguished:.
– those who work well over 75% of their working time outside making it an outsourced function, the working time is then in line with the average of engineers
– those who devote 33% of their working time in addition to their “traditional” activity. In this case, remote working is no longer an alternative method but a means to extend the hours of work in less restrictive conditions. The time spent at work well beyond the average. This population occupies significantly higher hierarchical positions.

Paradox, remote working to bring engineers additional freedom partially (48%) and partly a control (51%). For those who have a definite opinion, freedom outweighs the control (40% against 8%). It is mainly engineers belonging to the middle management that position more often bondage before freedom. High and low ends of the hierarchy, freedom outweighs clearly.

The feeling of freedom is not apprehended in the same way as the position occupied. The higher up the hierarchy, the greater the efficiency factors are highlighted: stress-free travel, better management of working time. Less was more management responsibilities and it favors the balance between work and private life, as well as fatigue avoided in transport.

Little unemployment among engineers

The job market is favorable to the engineers, college graduates are hired quickly and the level of unemployment is two to three times less than the average in France. Overall 100,000 engineers were recruited in 2014. If their pay is more than satisfactory, it is nevertheless a question undervaluation of technical expertise in France.

Familiar new technologies, they show that the transformation of work patterns they create freedom is experienced as a factor in balancing an intense professional life and personal life to which they are attached. Feminization is running. They are 28% in the last promotion when they were only 6% in 1973. A woman under 30 today 13 times more likely to be an engineer in 2014 that in the 80

Currently Representing 4% of the population, with a million engineers and scientists and 200 000 researchers, combining specialized expertise, rich and excellent, the engineer is able to succeed in an original way and lasting the profound changes coming by uniting our talents.

Only 4% of engineers are self-employed. Younger are more willing than their elders to create or acquire a business. 96% of employed autoentrepreneurs have prior experience. The experience of entrepreneurship is satisfactory for 85% of engineers.

Among the 37,000 engineers out of last promotion, the proportion declaring engineers seeking employment (18%) reflects a rapid integration of young people into working life.

A few months after graduation, 80% of these new engineers are employed. Unemployment remains around 2% for the exits promotions between 1995 and 2010. By contrast, that of seniors, relatively high, reaching a maximum of 7% between 55 and 60.

The starting salaries are relatively concentrated. Wage differentials increase with age, both in absolute terms and in proportion.

The median salary triple during working life, from € 35,000 in the 20-24 age 60 € 000 between 35 and 39 years, reaching € 100,000 per year at retirement.

In 2015, 120,000 engineers (nearly 16% of engineers) working abroad. More than half of these jobs overseas are based in Europe (57%). The leading trio of countries in Europe is the same as last year: Switzerland (13.3%), Germany (10.6%) and Great Britain (10.2%). Outside Europe, the United States (10.4%) remain a popular destination as well as Asia (13.9%) which retains great potential attractiveness. The starting motivations changed little: a little less than a third of the engineers go abroad at the request of their business (31% in 2015 vs. 30% in 2006)

. Survey Methodology

The 26th IESF National Survey on the situation of engineers was conducted in March and April 2015. 175
associations of engineering graduates have invited their members to respond to the detailed questionnaire that was offered to them through the Internet. In addition to the traditional sections on training, employment, innovation, compensation and motivation, engineers have responded in great numbers to optional specific issues.

Nearly 55,000 responses collected this year. The representativeness of the survey is unparalleled, she made a broad overview of the situation of engineers in business and provides reference information in France on this subject.


New technologies. The GreenGT drove at Le Castellet – Ouest-France

It looks like a LMP2. A different LMP2 other since, in addition to having a big wing on the back of the body, it has a wing in front. Which gives him a strange look of hammerhead … First feature. The most visible, the most spectacular … but the least interesting. For the true feature of this car, real rolling laboratory, is to issue a slight hiss, as if it were called upon to take off!

Powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, so devoid of any battery, this car has made its first laps Saturday noon, on the Castellet circuit. After two years of research engineer Jean-François Weber and his team of ten people.

“The stage is set”

“After two years of research, this car is near a GT racing. It is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell 340 kilowatts, which corresponds to 465 horsepower. Its range is 50 minutes, “ was first stated JFW. Before recalling “as it’s been over 50 years as aerospace became interested in hydrogen fuel cells. It is logical that the automotive world also interested. Would that for environmental, safety, reliability, power to weight ratio, resistance to vibration and acceleration … “

The result is there. After 35 days of rolling, 4,500 kilometers, this car which refuels in three minutes is ready to face other challenges. “The stage is set,” as likes to say Jean-François Weber. Before specifying “This laboratory car is not for the competition. It is especially the proof and demonstration that there are other alternatives that the combustion engine and electricity to power a car. But until there is no hydrogen stations … “

The opinion of Olivier Panis? “I enjoy driving this amazing car, really surprising. There are no speed to pass. She is silent. She is not yet ready to be aligned in competition. But the result is already conclusive. “

Will we see one day this prototype at Le Mans, as desired by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest? Not sure. “My goal is to demonstrate that hydrogen is an alternative. Not to compete, provides JFW. For now, I know that the big manufacturers do not. And yet … “

In the world of motorsport, we already knew the” Yellow tea pot “(the first Renault F1 turbocharger which regularly broke his engine in its infancy). He now has it the “GreenGT tea pot”, the car that rejects water as a vapor! “And there, it’s only water. This is not a head gasket problem! “ likes to say Jean-François Weber.

Agriculture. New technologies are implanted on farms – Western France Businesses

Thursday, June 25, the sector were invited farmers on the land of Jean-Marc Guérif of Gaec Valley at a place called the Besniauds to Sixt-Sur-Aff. The objective is to introduce methods and innovative ways along the lines of the technical, economic, social and environmental farms.

All day, industry farmers discovered these technologies. In the morning, a panel of nearly thirty farmers listened attentively to the presentations of the various stakeholders.

A drone for aerial image taken

These new technologies, the use of a drone is the most recent. The presentation, conducted by David Leclerc consultant in agronomy at the Chamber of Agriculture of Loire-Atlantique, allowed farmers to discover the various benefits associated with its use. Precision, speed, quality, autonomy and security

The drone allows direct diagnosis of the condition of the plant, taking account of potential mineralization plots and determines the protein option to increase the chances to meet the quality criterion “ says David Leclerc.

The general idea is to fertilize the most productive plots to better use them and to ensure not leaving too much nitrogen in the soil. Farmers, obviously very interested, then attended a demonstration performed over a parcel of Jean-Marc Bruno Guérif Couilleau, drone pilot and responsible crop at the Experimental Farm of Derval (44).

Diesel vehicles: new technologies – Auto News

With 63% of new registrations in 2014, diesel vehicles are still in the majority. While their supremacy gently tends to disappear in favor of gasoline and hybrid vehicles, the fleet continues, he, his dieselisation, with an average fleet age of 8 years and a half. In addition, the diesel vehicle users making more kilometers, it seems logical that the workshops entries continue to be predominantly diesel.

However, given the constraints of the environment, diesel engines had change significantly to meet, among others, the new emission standards. In 2017, a gasoline vehicle and a diesel vehicle will have substantially the same thresholds for emissions. This regulation has accelerated the emergence of new technologies like:

• Particulate filters. All new diesel vehicles are equipped since 2011 (Euro5 standard).

• low pressure EGR systems, SCR, NSR (Euro 6).

The treatment requires certain failures very specific knowledge. The large number of vehicles requires mastering to achieve quickly and effectively manage the flow of vehicles entering. For the proper functioning of a workshop, it is essential that service technicians are trained as well:

 - For the maintenance of engines and diesel emissions control systems

- In the control and replacement of components of injection systems and pollution control.

 -. In the diagnostic systems

This is to allow this comprehensive knowledge of the activity that the GNFA offers a training course covering all aspects of the diesel. A 14-day training for two days a month for 7 months.


New technologies for food distribution menu – Aquitaine Objective

When you know that 46% of French practice online purchase food, food distribution can only bow to the new technologies that capture the everyday life of each. Optimiam, Wynd and costs here have understood this and have been winning thanks to their innovative concepts.

Focus on the winners

Limit waste was the major concern of Raodath Amiou, founder of Optimiam and winner of the digital service. This is a mobile application that connects via geolocation local shops that sell fresh and perishable products to consumers around them to sell their surplus food on time. Optimiam should eventually encompass a keyword search engine, a system of smart rating and sponsorship, data management, and a behavioral analysis of consumers. A native of Ile-de-France, the creator of Optimiam count 3,000 traders hope by 2017 to 210,000 consumers in the application.

For commercial management platform Wynd (Ile-de- France), winner of the connected object, saving time between order and delivery to the customer is what motivated the creation of the Wynd Terminal, a connected object by directly connecting restaurants and their customers in real time. Professionals can view and edit the same time commands the client consults the process the order. The founders of the Wynd Terminal hope digitize tens of thousands of outlets worldwide in the coming years.

Selling fresh local products price “fair” is the objective costs of Here, winner of Concept store prices. Located in Portet-sur-Garonne (31), food retail brand allows consumers to purchase more than 2,500 products from 70% of the Midi-Pyrenees region. The brand hopes to capture 4 to 5 million in revenue on each store and open 5-6 new stores in France by 2016.

Towards an explosion of food sales

“46% of French practice food online purchase”, is what emerges from the report of the Obsoco following a survey conducted online by Respondi (from 13 to 23 March 2015) among a sample of 971 people, aged 18 to 70, taking into account their socio-economic group and region. Seduced by e-commerce in general, the French could become many experimenting buying food online even if the share of e-commerce in this sector remains very marginal, representing only 3% of the market share.

Among the users of e-commerce-food, the 24-34 years are over-represented, suggesting that the report “daily” of this “generation Y” to new technology has an influence in the adoption of this logic of purchase. Intermediate occupations are also the majority among shoppers in the food sector. The ease with new technologies and the financial comfort incite them to practice food sales.

From mass market segmentation?

In contrast to the mass market war boom, the trend is segmentation according to the various and diverse needs of consumers. Time saving, environmental responsibility, quality products and good deals are causing this segmentation of food sales made through the drives, the producer directly, group purchases, subscriptions and private sales.

Conquering the Great West?

Among the different regions to conquer, the great West seems to be the first region on the list with 54% of large western population already practice and already food online purchase in the last 12 months, 9 points higher than people in the rest of France. A little surprising finding when we know that the online marketplace associated with the drive achieves his greatest success in this region. In addition to the drives that have earned notoriety with 40% of large Western users, private sales (20%) and the producer directly (14%) do not let down.

Although 95 % of French are fans of e-commerce pure players like Amazon and Cdiscount are not expected on the market in the food sector in France. Nearly 25% of non-buyers prefer the direct experience of the circuit producer in the coming months as the segment penetration rate in France is only 13%. This rate is 33% for the inhabitants of the great West.

HNWIs adopt new technologies – Boursorama

Even the rich want now manage their fortunes on the Net, and require private banks and wealth managers, far more traditionalist, a radical technological shift. This is one of the conclusions of the latest report on wealth in the world published by Capgemini.

“We see that the population of younger millionaires, and that less than 45 years, more and more Many do not have the same attitude as their responsibilities vis-à-vis new technologies elders “observes Jean Lassignardie, director at Capgemini. Some appointments each year in the beautiful rooms of their private banker no longer enough for them.

automated management solutions proposed by robots

They want a permanent personalized monitoring where that they are in the world, and across all channels, including digital, as well as tools to follow their own business, they often fall -and more than the generations précédentes- their assets among several asset managers.

This appetite for technology explains the emergence of new competitors for private bankers. Younger generations of millionaires are not hostile to such automated management solutions, generated by bots (robots advisors), which begin to develop in the United States. But if wealth managers have fallen behind technologically, new players can help them fill it.

More fickle

Thus, the United States, where in Silicon Valley, Hearsay Social, offers them a customizable tool they can use to “push” information at the right time to their customers, and how to use social networks to recruit young prospects under 35 years.

A revolution to take even more seriously than rich under 45 years are more likely than other older leave their wealth manager if they are not satisfied.
