Our Process

Our Proven Product Development Process

At ALTEN Technology, providing our clients with world-class service is at the heart of everything we do. We’ve honed the product development process we use to serve our clients over decades. The result is a collaborative process that reduces risk, is agile enough to meet changing product needs, and ultimately leads to superior product development in demanding industries.

For instance, our Denver delivery center has a quality management system (QMS) certified to AS9100/ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016. The processes we use at this delivery center are focused on putting strong project planning and product definition at the beginning of every project to ensure it is set up for successful execution. However, we recognize that the purpose of product development processes is to ensure a successful project outcome. That’s why we rightsize our processes for each project, so you can enjoy quality outputs without your project getting bogged down by unnecessary rigor.


When you need someone to round out your project team, we’ll either pull from our existing staff or recruit and hire an engineer with the right skills to work at your site under your direction. You guide the engineer’s day-to-day activities while we handle the personnel management, full benefits, and mentorship. The stability we provide our engineers allows us to attract and retain top talent of all levels and expertise.

Team Package

If your project would benefit from the ongoing support of a dedicated team of engineers that can adjust as necessary, we’ll assemble a development team with the right skills for the job. You provide the technical direction while we provide project management support. This team can integrate with your existing project team and is ideal for projects where the scope requires some flexibility.

Work Package

For statement-of-work-based projects with a clearly defined set of deliverables, we’ll create a project team to execute those deliverables. The project team will work under our technical direction at our site while you get regular status updates to keep you appraised of the project’s progress.
