Many companies already have great successes and good processes, however, the advantage of considering these processes through new information, even valued by the aspect of research, seems to be a wise approach.
The main problem with working with a research team is the complexity of maximizing the benefits of collaboration. It is very important to find the right expert (s), find the right way, based on a research-oriented methodology to work together.
The Scientific Advisory LAB is the link between your company and French researchers. The French Research Academy (Inria, the CNRS, the universities ect.) Brings many solutions and concrete methodologies to improve the industrial product. However, without this relevant link, all this aspect is lost. And the big companies (Orange, Nokia, Airbus, Engie etc.) have understood very well the interest of working in this way.
