Document Management in EADS Astrium Crisa: Success Story

"We managed to increase the control of documents in circulation, besides the economic benefits of not printing on paper." 

This is how the people at CRISA, one of the most important Spanish companies in the aerospace engineering field describe the help Athento has provided them. 

CRISA group is part of Astrium Ltd., a subsidiary of the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS) which employs over 15,000 people at its headquarters in France, Germany, UK, Netherlands and Spain and has a turnover of 4.8 billion euros, over $ 6.5 billion. 

To produce all kinds of aeronautical equipment, such as satellites, CRISA needs to comply during all their manufacturing processes to strict security. This control goes through the review and approval of technical documents such as technical drawing designs and other. 

By 2011, this revision was done on paper. The technical documentation was printed, reviewed and then signed with manually stamped signatures of those responsible for approving these documents. Once signed, the first page is scanned and attached to the original digital document. 

This process was error-prone, and it also also meant printing paper costs that could be eliminated. That's what ​​Athento achieved. 

Review and approval workflows for technical documentation were created in Athento. At the end of these workflows, documents could be completely digitally signed. 

What did CRISA gain with Athento? 

  • Greater control over technical documentation
  • More efficient and automated processes
  • Savings of more than € 14,000 in paper printing each year
