Company: Scyform
Project Length:  4 months
Desired start date: ASAP
Location: Laval, QC
No. of Positions: 1
Preferences: Without any precise order : Civil Engineering (Road design, construction, inspection and maintenance), Industrial engineering (New process, Numerical Command, Drones), Computer engineering (Algorithms, Automation, Imaging), Operational Research (Construction process, Alignments optimization: Costs, ROI, Cut and Fill, Resource Allocation, Transportation, etc.), Software ergonomics.

About the Company: 

ScyForm specializes in analysis, deployment and customization of 3D CAD and PLM information systems (Life Cycle Management ) and solutions. Our goal is to help businesses modernize how they create, share and maintain data and processes related to engineering in data intensive industries such as civil engineering/construction, industrial equipment and transportation.  As a Dassault Systems partner, we are distributor of a comprehensive portfolio of solutions that support key business and engineering processes, and that accelerate innovation through collaboration and enhanced user experience.

Project Description:

The project will be within or in connection with a new workbench for 3D road design in CATIA developed by ScyForm. The areas referred require road modeling and related works such as railway tracks and pipelines. Note that the tool enables solid modeling from design to as-built through all the intermediate stages for accurate calculation of quantities at each stage. In doing so, it allows project and lifecycle management.

Research Objectives:

  • Enhance the experience, either by adding new functionality or by coupling the tool to other systems related to research in construction optimization. (Wiki: Lean Construction is a combination of operational research and practical development in design and building with an adaptation of lean manufacturing principles and practices to the design end-to-end process and building)


  • We favor virtual experiments taking advantage of the workbench to get accurate quantities.

Expertise and Skills Needed:

  • Engineering
