MetroStar today announced that it has been appraised at Level 3 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI). CMMI is a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve our performance. An appraisal at maturity level 3 indicates the organization 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. With this CMMI Level 3 appraisal, MetroStar can continually maintain a leadership position in this competitive market space.
