Quality certification demonstrates CALNET’s dedication to delivering customer value.
CALNET, Inc. announced today that the firm has earned the CMMI DEV Level 3 Certification for improving processes for developing better products and services. The CMMI-DEV model provides guidance for applying CMMI best practices in a development organization. Best practices in the model focus on activities for developing quality products and services to meet the needs of customers and end users. The CMMI-DEV, V1.3 model is a collection of development best practices from government and industry that is generated from the CMMI V1.3 Architecture and Framework.1 CMMI-DEV is based on the CMMI Model Foundation or CMF (i.e., model components common to all CMMI models and constellations) and incorporates work by development organizations to adapt CMMI for use in the development of products and services.
The appraisal was led by Concept QA Labs and the record of CALNET’s' CMMI Dev 3 rating is available through PARS.
CALNET wants to deliver products and services better, faster, and cheaper. At the same time, in the high-technology environment of the twenty-first century, nearly all organizations have found themselves building increasingly complex products and services. It is unusual today for a single organization to develop all the components that compose a complex product or service. More commonly, some components are built in-house and some are acquired; then all the components are integrated into the final product or service. Organizations must be able to manage and control this complex development and maintenance process. CMMI® for Development (CMMI-DEV) provides an opportunity to avoid or eliminate these stovepipes and barriers. CMMI for Development consists of best practices that address development activities applied to products and services. It addresses practices that cover the product’s lifecycle from conception through delivery and maintenance. CALNET’s emphasis is on the work necessary to build and maintain the total product.
“CALNET has made continual corporate investments in our Quality Management System (QMS) to increase value and improving results for our federal customers,” said Kaleem Shah, President & CEO. “It shows that we have truly embraced continuous improvement for our own sake and more importantly, for our customers.”
