The appraisal was performed successfully by Paul Byrnes of Integrated System Diagnostics (ISD) at CERTON’s headquarters in Melbourne, FL. Dan Rice, CERTON’s Corporate Quality Manager, stated, “The CMMI Level 3 rating of all the appraised process areas marks a major milestone in CERTON’s evolution as a premier provider of software life-cycle management, design, development, automation, and independent verification and validation solutions for the safety critical industries. CERTON is now among an elite group of small businesses to be successfully rated at CMMI Level 3 in all appraised process areas."
What is CMMI?
CMMI is the result of more than 20 years of ongoing work at Carnegie Mellon University by members of industry, government, and the SEI. Powered by Carnegie Mellon, the CMMI Institute is working to build upon CMMI's success, advance the state of the practice, accelerate the development and adoption of best practices, and provide solutions to the emerging needs of businesses around the world. Level 3 is characterized as sets of defined and documented standard processes established and subject to some degree of improvement over time. These standard processes are in place and used to establish consistency of process performance through all aspects of the organization, in this case being CERTON.
CERTON would like to thank Paul Byrnes and ISD for their help as the external appraisal company. Paul played an instrumental role in training and assisting CERTON to accomplish this amazing accomplishment in such a short period of time.
