TECHSOFT Assists General Dynamics Division in Seattle, WA with Achieving CMMI® Maturity Level 3
Bothell, Washington - TECHSOFT has assisted General
Dynamics Ordance and Tactical Systems (GD-OTS), Seattle Operations in achieving
a CMMI Maturity Level 3 rating following a formal SCAMPI℠ appraisal conducted
in May 2013. The appraisal evaluated 4 major GD-OTS programs in their
engineering development and production departments against the 18 process areas
that encompass CMMI ML3.
This process improvement effort began with TECHSOFT conducting an onsite Gap
Analysis of GD-OTS’s processes in fall, 2011. Once a plan was approved in
January, 2012, the team revised numerous GD-OTS processes to be more consistent,
logical, and understandable. TECHSOFT’s familiarity with GD-OTS Seattle’s sister
site in Niceville, Florida was a tremendous help in understanding their process
needs and quickly reaching effective solutions.
The SCAMPI appraisal was conducted by Mike Knox, TECHSOFT’s Director of Process
Services. During the SCAMPI, the appraisal team reviewed over 875 unique
documents and conducted formal interviews with 30 General Dynamics Ordnance and
Tactical Systems executives, project leaders and process area practitioners.
The GD-OTS team commended TECHSOFT for their professionalism, methodology, and
customer service during the initiative.
