Huntsville, AL, March 21, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Tec-Masters, Inc. is pleased to announce the achievement of Maturity Level 3 of the Capability Maturity Model Integration ® (CMMI) for its Development Group. Tec-Masters has successfully maintained a CMMI rating since 2007.
As stated by the CMMI Institute, Organizations using CMMI have more predictable cost, schedule, and quality, with business results that serve as discriminators among their competitors. CMMI is required by many DoD and U.S. Government contracts, especially software development. CMMI can be used to guide process improvement across a project, division, or an entire organization.
The appraisal team was led by Jeff Dutton of BreakPoint Consulting Group. John Broyles, Tec-Masters Vice President of Operations, served as the sponsor, and Bob Lewis, Quality & Process Manager, coordinated the effort.
Tec-Masters has been ISO-9001 registered since 2000 and has successfully combined many of its ISO and CMMI processes to enhance their effectiveness. These two efforts share a number of assets and processes and are used throughout the company to build better products and provide better services. Tec-Masters also works in Government-sponsored Mentor-Protégé efforts to a number of smaller companies and provides effective training and supports their efforts to become registered in these processes where appropriate.
Tec-Masters recently added to its existing Six Sigma capabilities through a cooperative effort hosted by Raytheon, a major Prime Contractor. This latest training makes approximately fifty (50) Tec-Masters personnel and their protégés, who have received Six Sigma training over the last few years. Bob Lewis noted, “These three initiatives provide us with a unique set of skills and processes seldom found in a small business the size of Tec-Masters, Inc.” John Broyles added, “This unique skill set enables us to offer higher quality products and faster responses to accommodate changing customer needs.” He continued, “These integrated capabilities make Tec-Masters, Inc. a partner of choice when teaming with others, especially with large Prime Contractors.”
