“Continuous improvement is embedded in our Service Delivery Framework, and achieving an appraisal at CMMI Maturity Level 3 validates our Quality Management philosophy,” AMERICAN SYSTEMS’ President and CEO Peter Smith said. “It’s a testament to our commitment to our customers and their national priority missions. It also speaks to the quality of our people and processes, ensuring repeatable and predictable outcomes.”

The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) is a capability improvement model that can be adapted to solve any performance issue at any level of an organization in any industry. The Model provides guidelines and recommendations for helping an organization diagnose problems and improve performance. A successful CMMI® appraisal is required by manyDoD and U.S. Government contracts, especially for software development.
