Demonstrating its commitment to quality and continuous process improvement, Tapestry Solutions announced it has maintained its Level 3 Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) certification for its Mission Planning software and services.
As a Boeing Company, Tapestry has achieved its CMMI Level 3 rating for the fourth consecutive time since 2009. The CMMI Institute-credentialed certifications are valid for three years.
“Achieving CMMI Level 3 recertification once again reflects our ongoing commitment to quality – and our passion to deliver best-of-breed solutions by meeting or exceeding the highest industry standards,” said Jens Pohl, Vice President of Engineering and Technology for Tapestry Solutions.
CMMI is a globally recognized certification and ratings system awarded to organizations that achieve the required standards for the planning, engineering and managing of the software development process.
Its compilation of best practices are designed to improve performance, enhance key capabilities and utilize critical business processes – while managing risks in software, product and service development.
Tapestry’s Mission Planning team has earned CMMI certification for all its programs and associated processes, including configuration management, software quality assurance and supply management.
Five levels of Maturity set standards and best practices for improved performance. An appraisal at Level 3 indicates that the organization is performing at a level in which processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools and methods that are tailored to each program.
During the Level 3 recertification process, auditors reviewed 18 process areas and 12 best practice areas. A total of 216 areas require evidence for compliance using work products, meeting notes, logs, presentations, etc. These were followed by interviews with key players.
