General Dynamics Land Systems Achieves CMMI Level 3 Ranking

General Dynamics : 11 January, 2007  (New Product)
General Dynamics Land Systems Achieves CMMI Level 3 Ranking for Project and Systems Engineering
General Dynamics Land Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, has achieved a Maturity Level 3 rating on the Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) scale for Project and Systems Engineering. CMMI Level 3 focuses on the existence of a defined and managed organizational process.

The Software Engineering Institute (SEI), a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense and operated by Carnegie Mellon University, manages the CMMI appraisal process. SEI's CMMI standard provides a framework for improving processes that organizations use to develop and deliver high-performance, low-risk products.

General Dynamics Land Systems' processes were evaluated by a team from KAMO Consultancy. The team rigorously assessed General Dynamics Land Systems' Project and Systems Engineering processes against the system engineering disciplines of CMMI. After reviewing representative projects, the team determined that the proprietary Project and Systems Engineering processes achieved Maturity Level 3. This accomplishment complements the General Dynamics Land Systems' Software Organization's CMMI Level 5 rating achieved in June 2006.

The CMMI has become a standard for assessing and improving engineering processes and is organized into five maturity levels: initial, managed, defined, quantitatively managed and optimizing. The thoroughness, effectiveness and control of an organization's processes are shown to improve as an organization moves up through each level.
