ATEXIS offers services that cover the complete lifecycle of technical systems – from concepts, planning and development up to customer support and dedicated transformation plans. We provide cost-efficient, on-time, and right first time product support. Our range of services includes Technical Documentation, Maintenance Engineering, Manufacturing Support, In-Service Support, Technical Training and RAMS. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of the ALTEN Group, our international group provides services through work packages, service contracts and temporary projects in the aerospace, naval, energy, medical technology, automotive and railway industries.

Our core competence is high-quality Technical Documentation. Technical Documentation is essential in any engineering environment because it enables technicians, operators and end users to be autonomous and efficient in the management of complex systems and equipment. Our highly skilled and specialized engineers, certified pilots, certified maintenance technicians and linguists are our foundation for success in the Technical Documentation segment. The diverse backgrounds of our teams and our advanced quality assurance system ensure that we provide high-quality documentation for both mechanic and electronic components.

The ALTEN and ATEXIS Groups are among the “Airbus Group E2S preferred A supplier for engineering services” that the Airbus Group has selected on a worldwide basis. In the aerospace and defense industries, which account for more than half of ATEXIS’ business revenue, as well in all other industrial sectors, our customers benefit from the management of complete documentation processes or dedicated sections of the process. This allows our customers to focus their efforts on their core business, avoiding costly interfaces along a broken supply chain comprising several suppliers.

Our services:

  • Development of Guidance Documents
  • Operational Documentation (FOM, AOM, QRH, POM, MSCOM, etc.)
  • Preventive Maintenance and Repair Documentation (AMM/CMM, SRM, WDM, ASM, etc.)
  • Illustrated Parts Data (IPC, IPD, IPL, TCI, LAR)

The ATEXIS Group has a strong international organizational structure with nearshore and offshore affiliates in Romania and India that are secured by a well-established front and back office structure in France, Germany, and Spain. We have the capacity to take on full responsibility and ensure the efficient management of structured, international and large-scale projects in accordance with the applicable standards, including ATA iSpec 2200, ASD S1000D/2000M, ATA 100, GAF.TO, Machinery Directive, and many other industrial norms. We customize our services to your requirements and seamlessly adapt to your tooling environment (i.e. Adobe Suite, Arbortext Editor, SAP, Oxygen, etc.), whether you require modularized documentation such as an XML authoring environment or any other form of documentation.

The size and flexibility of our teams enable us to create more than 6,000 maintenance tasks and to document over half a million spare parts every year, accompanied by well over 25,000 2D and 3D illustrations.

Provisioning the necessary spare parts and materials is critical to avoid disruption in the operation of any system. From the accurate documentation of part numbers, which allows the user to identify the requisite spare part and its characteristics, up to the management of modifications or stock management in a shop, the supply chain is essential for ensuring that customers have the required material at the right time. We document, analyze and manage our customers’ material data and optimize their material provisioning chains in order to reduce costs and improve time management. At the ATEXIS Group, we document more than half a million spare parts every year in a variety of standards, including ATA, ASD S2000M and NATO Codification. Among the multitude of software we use for managing spare parts, SAP, Windchill and AMOSS are some of the most frequently used tools.

Our expertise covers the following services:

  • Illustrated Parts Data (IPC, IPD, IPL, TCI, LAR)
  • Initial Provisioning Lists (IPL)
  • Technical Illustrations
  • NATO Codification
  • Stock Management
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Component Obsolescence Management

We assist you in the selection and implementation of documentation software. This includes all of the tools and functions needed to create, manage and maintain your technical documentation.

Backed by our vast experience and wide range of engineering and technical documentation projects, we are always up-to-date with the state-of-the-art knowledge about innovations in the market and use our extensive experience for benchmarking to find the best solution for you.

Depending on your requirements, your new documentary system can consist of general databases, workflow management tools, illustration software, editors and authoring software, content management systems, product lifecycle management software, and other tools.

ATEXIS supports you in three key steps:

  • Definition of the requirements, scope and scale of your documentary system. In close cooperation with you, we accomplish this by auditing your documents and processes while ensuring compliance with your guidance documents and business rules.
  • Selection of the documentary system that optimally covers your requirements, based on agile methods such as SCRUM. The selected tool can be an “off-the-shelf” solution, a customization, or the development of new software, including features such as comprehensive search, online updates and intelligent archiving functions for storing complementary documents.
  • Implementation, use, management and maintenance of the software.

ATEXIS is experienced in both the technical and educational aspects of training, and we cover the full spectrum of training services. From the assessment of knowledge and the Training Needs Analysis Report that will drive the training process up to the development of courses and the actual instruction, our experienced trainers apply a variety of training methods and standards, such as EASA Part-147 for Technical Training in the aerospace industry.

Depending on your needs, ATEXIS provides training on-site at your premises or in our own facilities. We support you in various ways, from managing your own training process to a one-stop shop solution, where we supply training concepts and equipment as well as the trainers. Managing your complete training process, we customize our services to your needs and requirements while ensuring cost efficiency at the same time. Using tools such as Adobe FrameMaker Suite, Courseware, Storyboard and Erudis, we provide high-quality training and make it interesting and appealing.

ATEXIS supports the design, management and development of highly complex systems in various safety-critical industries. RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety) Studies ensure the optimal level of performance of a system and predictable in-service costs. Our engineers analyze how to guarantee the operational reliability of a system as well as its availability; they define ideal maintenance concepts and how to ensure safety when using the system. Our engineers cover a variety of RAMS standards, including NPRD95, MIL HDBK, FIDES, RDF 2000 and the UTEC standards, by using tools such as Item Toolkit and Relex.

To make certain that our customers’ service performance objectives are achieved, ATEXIS engineers utilize RAMS methods during the entire lifecycle of a system. The results of each dedicated analysis help improve the system’s performance.

We work closely with our customers’ design and engineering offices, both on-site and at ATEXIS, and are experienced in a wide range of services, including:

  • RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Safety) Studies
