September 20, 2013
Washington, DC - CSSI, Inc. announces that it has met the requirements of the Software Engineering Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 2. This achievement demonstrates CSSI’s ongoing commitment to product and service quality as well as the use of process management and software development best practices.
The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense and operated by Carnegie Mellon University. CMMI ratings assist customers in selecting reliable and low-risk suppliers of software products and services.
According to SEI documentation, some characteristics of an organization operating at a Level 2 rating include the following:
- Customer requirements are managed and processes are planned, performed, measured, and controlled
- Projects are performed and managed according to their documented plans
- Status of the work products and the delivery of services are visible to management at defined points
- Commitments are established among relevant stakeholders and are revised as needed. Work products are reviewed with stakeholders and are controlled
“The CMMI Level 2 rating highlights not only our ongoing efforts to ensure quality for our customers, but also the significant efforts of our staff, said CSSI CEO Cynthia Castillo. “This appraisal is a component of a broader quality management system, which is designed to enhance the integrity of our process management and software development approaches.”←Go Back
