Technological challenges and Alten added value

Globalisation and new technologies have resulted in industrial manufacturers having to seriously overhaul their Product & Service supply. Adapting to local needs, every shorter product-to-market times, cost control throughout product life cycles, innovation and technological breakthroughs: highly complex parameters for which ALTEN deploys its Engineering Consulting and Technologies services (ICT).

The flexibility of our organisation and project methodologies, assessed to CMMi level 3, is able to speed up product development at competitive prices in a process of continuous improvement in the fields of onboard electronics, control/command and mechanics.

Though mainly positioned in the studies and design areas, with our teams of senior engineers we also deploy specialised supply in the areas of PMO, industrialisation (Manufacturing Engineering) and series life (customer support, maintenance plans, technical documentation) to optimise manufacturer performance and the total cost of ownership (TCO) for the end customer.

Our operations in 16 countries mean we can support the international growth of our customers, either by providing local support to their R&D teams or by managing transnational projects.

These assets are why ALTEN has become the technological partner chosen by the largest European companies in the fields of ground transportation, aviation/aerospace/defence, energy and life sciences, and telecommunications.
