Sous-marin Naval Group MCO


In 2020, Naval Group is considering the future of the “SMSType” software. The software is embedded on military vessels (e.g. frigates and submarines) and is used to supervise the operation of the vessels.

the context

Given the relevance of the software and importance of the project, Naval Group is seeking to set up a fixed-price maintenance package and Apside was chosen to collaborate on the project. Naval Group delegates the development of updates and corrections to any incidents detected on the product.

the teams

The team in place is currently composed of a project manager and 2 to 3 developers (depending on the workload). The developers and project manager were already familiar with the object language and had some expertise on the subject. However, in order to meet the client’s requirements and apply best practices when working on the software, they had to train and get better on C# /.Net and WPF under Visual Studio. At the same time, in order to capitalise on the knowledge of the Naval Group ecosystem that our teams had already acquired and in order to respect the client’s development processes, a best practices memo was initialised and made available to the teams.

Our support

Following an initialisation phase performed within the Naval Group teams, the teams produced a replica of the client’s entire development environment in Apside’s offices in order to outsource the entire development of the application. Using an agile operating mode, sprint reviews were organised every two weeks in order to define the backlog.Once the developments have been completed with a performance-based commitment, the product was delivered to the client’s environment with all the elements linked to it (documentation, code and tests).
