TECHSOFT Assists General Dynamics in Sustaining CMMI® Maturity Level 3

Niceville, Florida - TECHSOFT has assisted General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems, Niceville Operations in its sustainment of a CMMI for Development, Maturity Level 3 rating. The CMMI Maturity Level 3 (ML3) success was announced following a formal SCAMPISM appraisal conducted in March 2012.

During the Final Findings Briefing, Tony Gonzalez, General Manager of the Niceville Operations, stressed that he was very proud of everyone’s hard work and their continued efforts in process improvement initiatives which include CMMI, ISO and Lean Six Sigma. Gonzalez also stated that they would not be where they are today and would not have doubled their yearly sales from 2006 were it not for their efforts to standardize processes and put into place new processes required by CMMI.

General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems is a business unit of General Dynamics specializing in the design, development, and production of warheads for tactical missiles, rockets, ammunition, and bombs.

TECHSOFT began assisting the Niceville Operations with their CMMI program in June 2006, providing onsite mentoring, training, oversight, and appraisal services. As a result, the GD facility met its aggressive process improvement goals of achieving CMMI Maturity Level 2 by December 2007 and CMMI ML3 by March 2009. The most recent effort enabled the Niceville Operations to retain their ML3 by meeting the SEI’s requirement of successful re-appraisal every three years.

The SCAMPI appraisal was conducted by SEI-certified Lead Appraiser Orris E. Burns III, who was assisted by four appraisal team members. During the SCAMPI, the appraisal team reviewed 972 unique artifacts and conducted formal interviews with 26 General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems executives, project leaders, and process area practitioners.

During the Final Findings Briefing, Burns praised the GD team for a smooth appraisal, thanks in large part to the prior data collection and CMMI mapping efforts of Cara Smith, one of TECHSOFT’s senior process engineers. The appraisal went so smoothly that it was completed a half-day early.
