G-SCOP is a multidisciplinary laboratory which has been created to meet the scientific challenges imposed by the ongoing changes within the industrial world. The scope of the laboratory goes from the products conception to the production systems management and is based on strong skills in optimisation. The laboratory offers platforms, softwares and technical tools for the experiences, amongst which the creation of the MEXICO program by the G-SCOP Integrated Conception pool (previously linked to the Grenoble 3S laboratory), with the aim of providing the researchers of this team with « experimental tools for collaborative engineering».
In its current form, MEXICO offers collaborative work tools as well as solutions for the observation and the recording of multi-actors situation on present mode (several people in the same room) or from a distance through the internal network.
In parallel, the GI-Nova platform is used as a tool by companies, laboratories and training organisms to optimise and value their technical and research skills. The platform thus offers an extremely useful support to students, teachers and industrials in Grenoble.
