CAE’s Mission Solutions group achieves high status
Jan. 7, 2013, Montreal - CAE today announced that its Mission Solutions group has achieved Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 5 certification, the highest quality standard possible for software engineering.
The CMMI Level 5 rating for CAE's Mission Solutions group was achieved after a rigorous, third-party evaluation of business processes to ensure they are consistent, predictable, and focused on continuous improvement throughout the lifecycle of a program.
"CMMI Level 5 is an outstanding achievement for our Mission Solutions group and can serve as a discriminator for CAE because we are one of only a few organizations in Canada to achieve Level 5," said Pietro D'Ulisse, CAE's Vice President and Military Business Leader – Canada. "This demonstrates the ongoing commitment we have to the on-time delivery of quality products and services to our defence customers."
Originally developed by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) of Carnegie Mellon University and now administered by the CMMI Institute, the CMMI process helps advance software engineering and related disciplines to ensure the development and operation of systems with predictable and improved cost, schedule, and quality.
CAE's Mission Solutions group provides comprehensive lifecycle and in-service support solutions, including avionics software upgrades, integrated logistics support, systems engineering and data management services for the Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 fleet. In addition, the Mission Solutions group leverages CAE's modeling and simulation technologies and expertise to deliver decision support solutions such as the CAE Augmented Visionics System (AVS), CAE Volume-Based Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (VISR) system, and commercial Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) ISR services.
