SBD Achieves CMMI For DEV V2.0 ML3 for its Systems Engineering & Software Development Unit.
Vienna, Va. – August 12, 2021 – Solutions By Design’s (SBD) Systems Engineering & Software Development unit proudly announces the achievement of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)® For Development (Version 2.0) Maturity Level 3. The appraisal #54267 was conducted from June 24th to June 29th with the help of ANTS Corp, an Elite CMMI Institute Appraisal Partner and this marks the successful upgrade from CMMI® v1.3 to v2.0. As a reminder, SBD’s IT Services unit achieved its CMMI For SVC v1.3 ML3 in July of 2020 and plans on upgrading to v2.0 in 2023.
In preparation for the Benchmark Appraisal, SBD QA & PMO reviewed practice implementation evidence and performed gap assessments on four Development projects namely- CMS Health Insurance Oversight System (HIOS), CMS Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS), HUD Active Partners Performance System (APPS) and NCUA Information Technology Support Services Task Order #4 (ITSS TO4).
At the organizational level, SBD QA & PMO worked with the senior leadership team to assess organizational practice areas such as Governance (GOV), Implementation Infrastructure (II), and Organizational Training (OT). Additionally, QA & PMO reviewed Process Management (PCM), Process Asset Development (PAD), Managing Performance and Measurement (MPM) and Organizational Process Quality Assurance (PQA) practice areas in preparation for the Benchmark Appraisal. During the gap assessment, an internally developed assessment tool was utilized to assess the projects and organizational practice implementation against the requirements of CMMI® v2.0.
SBD would like to thank ANTS for providing guidance throughout the internal assessment phase and conducting a readiness review prior to the appraisal. Earlier at the start of the internal assessments, ANTS also conducted a CMMI Overview Training highlighting the changes in the version 2.0 model.
The appraisal at maturity level 3 indicates that SBD is performing at a “defined” level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools and methods. The organization’s set of standard processes, which is the basis for maturity level 3, is established and improved over time.
