Gauthier FANMUY is a Systems Users Experience Director at Dassault Systemes ( He is in charge of a Systems Engineering tools portfolio.

He previously worked in a consulting company ADN where he created and developed a department on Systems Engineering consultancy and tools reselling. He has worked in the past years in the Automotive Industry at PSA Peugeot Citroen where he has deployed Requirement engineering and DOORS. He also worked in the Aeronautic Industry at Dassault-Aviation where he managed several projects such as integration of electro-optics sensors on military aircrafts, development of complex system functions and re-engineering of MMI in object oriented approaches.

He represents Dassault Systemes at AFIS (French association on Systems Engineering). He also serves as AFIS Deputy Technical Director and represents AFIS at AFNOR. He was previously chairman of Global processes Technical Committee of AFIS and also managed during 10 years of this organization the Requirements Engineering Working Group.

He represents Dassault Systemes at the Corporate Advisory Board of INCOSE (International Council On Systems Engineering). He is co-founder of the SPECIEF association for the promotion of Requirements Engineering in French and is porting within this association the overall IREB certification scheme in French speaking regions.

Mr. Stefan Aeschbacher

Stefan Aeschbacher (Vice-President of the Swiss INCOSE chapter)

Stefan Aeschbacher is a consultant for Systems Engineering and Project Management in the transportation business.

He received his master degree in computer science in 2001 from the Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne Switzerland. After his studies, he started his own company and consulted various railway and bus operators with respect to their on-board systems. His main areas of work are customer information, transport control systems, e-ticketing and communication systems. Over the past years he has worked in most of the Systems Engineering subjects, from requirement engineering to integration. Notable projects in which he participated were, the creation of a new architecture for information systems in trains for the Swiss Federal Railway which has become a standard in Switzerland and the creation of a concept for a nation wide interaction free electronic ticketing system.

In 2011 he was part of the group that founded the Swiss INCOSE chapter, the Swiss Society of Systems Engineering (SSSE). As its Vice-President he helped developing the chapter in an active organization with frequent presentations and networking events. In 2013 he acquired his CSEP certification. He participates in the working group for moderate complex systems. His current principal area of interest in Systems Engineering is the application of agile methodologies to systems containing software and hardware.
