SIMETRI, Inc. announced that it has been appraised at level 3 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)®. The appraisal was performed by Process Improvement Company, LLC.

CMMI is a capability improvement framework that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their 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 are the basis for maturity level 3, is established and improved over time.

“Growth demands optimization,” said Edward Stadler, SIMETRI’s vice president of engineering. “This benchmark of CMMI level 3 not only represents a dedicated SIMETRI team working toward and achieving a goal that started over a year ago, but it also provides our customers with confidence that our products are being developed with mature management and engineering processes. We’ve built so much momentum adapting and enhancing our processes, I can’t wait to see where we’ll be in a few short years.”

Trevor Ellis, a SIMETRI mechanical engineer whose work was vital to the appraisal’s outcome, expressed, “It’s validating to see our efforts pay off, but it’s even better to know that as our customer base and projects expand, our capabilities are rapidly evolving to match them.”

SIMETRI intends to build on their current CMMI appraisal by continuing to prioritize key capability optimization throughout its current expansion. The company expects to surpass level 3 in future appraisals.
