Custom Software Design and Development
As our company name suggests, a central focus of our business is the design and development of small computer systems application software. Over the years the definition of "small computer" has expanded significantly and the MA&D Operation has developed software for numerous microcomputers, workstations, and mini-computers working in virtually all major operating systems and languages as indicated in the table below:
Silicon Graphics Workstation
Windows 95/98, 2000, Windows NT, MS DOS, LINUX
C, C++, C#, Pascal, FORTRAN, Visual Basic, JAVA
In addition to software development, the MA&D Operation is also known for testing. Because we have roots in the areas of ergonomics and human factors, we maintain close contact with the state-of-the-art in human-computer interface design issues. These skills are applied to the design and testing of MA&D Operation software.
At Alion's MA&D Operation, software documentation is a central part of the software design and development process. In addition to standard hard-copy documentation for both programmers and users, the company has pioneered the development of on-line user's guides through the use of hypermedia.
