About us


Consultancy firm specialising in industrial project management and improving process performance

Our convictions

Optidia was founded in 2009 and works on behalf of industrial companies and organisations on the basis of the following principles:

  • Providing pragmatic advice, with results that can easily be managed and implemented by our clients: simple, shared tools; concise, prioritised action plans
  • Working with our clients in a relationship of trust and encouraging long-term relationships based on listening to the client’s specific needs and providing support while making proactive suggestions
  • Achieving consensus about the methods used and the results obtained, not only with decision-makers but with everyone involved in an industrial project or process: the goal is to ensure long-term success for the methods and proposals we contribute to the organisation.

Our modes of operation

First, all our operations are carefully prepared in advance with the decision-maker(s) in order to optimise the mission in terms of the results expected, the schedule to be respected and the resources to be deployed.

Industrial project management:

We intervene on an occasional basis, at key points of your projects (definition, design, implementation) to optimise your industrial projects: 1 to 5 days of intervention, leading a working group that will typically be the project team. This intervention may be supplemented with interviews.

We also provide support throughout the project in the form of assistance to the contracting party.
Process performance optimisation

Our performance improvement, lean management and change management missions are tailored to your needs. In the preparatory phase, we work together to set the duration and terms of our operation to suit your objectives and your corporate culture. We operate by leading working groups and conducting interviews.

The Optidia solution

To meet your needs, the Optidia solution focuses on three themes:

Project optimisation

  • Value Analysis
  • Needs Analysis
  • Project Review

Risk management

  • Operation and process (HAZOP, FMECA)
  • Project
  • Implementation and construction
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Process improvement

  • Audit
  • Support for the implementation of improvement actions (Progress Plan)
  • Functional Analysis
  • Change management
Each operation is personalised to meet your needs in full. Support in these areas is provided via working groups or interviews and takes account of the optimisation of internal resources required for these studies.
