GLOBAL Mission Systems, a division of Global Strategies Group (North America) Inc., has attained a Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Maturity Level 3 rating in a Class A appraisal. The Maturity Level 3 designation affirms GLOBAL Mission Systems’ status as a leading integrator of C4ISR systems and technology for the national security community and opens the door to contracts requiring that rating. The rating is also indicative of institutionalized standard engineering processes and a culture of continuous improvement focused on customer satisfaction.
The CMMI is internationally recognized as a standard of improvement and assessment of product and service development practices. CMMI appraisals are conducted to determine and inform customers of how an organization’s processes compare to industry best practices and identify areas where improvement can be made. The standard was developed by the members of industry, government and the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute (SEI) as part of the CMMI project, for sponsors including the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and the National Defense Industrial Association.
GLOBAL North America President & CEO John Hillen commented, “Achieving the Maturity Level 3 rating demonstrates not only our commitment to technological excellence in our missions systems division, but also our dedication to the work of our customers. This rating is part of our on-going goal to improve our operations and become a larger and even more capable mission partner for our national security community customers.”
