Process and workflow

I submit Fortinet booklet prints to Agile Administration for any changes and document QA verification records on product models, and indicate new prints when print stock is used up. After QA confirms correct interface information, I provide print-ready files for production release.

Feedback and design approvals are with Technical Document Writers, QA, Hardware/Software Product Managers, and VP of Product Management. Design assignments are tracked and assigned on Fortinet Product Management Database (PMDB) web portal.
