Projects

ADDLabs designs projects, computer systems and cutting-edge technology for the fields of oil, management and the Internet. While remaining dedicated to pure research, the laboratory always associates academic and scientific pursuits with the needs and demands of its partners and investors. Since we first entered into partnership with Petrobras, the administration and technical quality of our projects have undergone semiannual evaluations with the management committee, composed of managers from the company.

The evaluation meetings involve discussions about future projects and areas where the laboratory may be able to serve the company. These meetings encourage constant improvement on the part of the laboratory’s project managers and drive ADDLabs’ commitment to diligent commitment to the highest quality research and products.
