Ames Intelligent Systems Division Renews CMMI Maturity Level 2 Rating

The Intelligent Systems Division successfully completed a SCAMPI A appraisal and renewed its Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Maturity Level 2 rating, first achieved in 2010 and first renewed in 2013. The appraisal preparation was a collaborative effort involving personnel from Codes TI and RD (the Mission Design Division), and the Ames Office of the Chief Engineer.

BACKGROUND: CMMI is a process model for software engineering first established by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), and is similar to ISO-9001, AS-9100, and other industry process standards. NASA Procedural Requirement 7150.2 for Software Engineering requires all organizations developing Class B software and above to have a CMMI Maturity Level 2 rating. A Maturity Level 2 rating means that the organization has satisfactorily met all the specific and generic goals defined by the SEI in the areas of Project Planning, Requirements Management, Project Monitoring and Control, Configuration Management, Measurement and Analysis, Supplier Agreement Management, and Product and Process Quality Assurance. The Standard CMMI Appraisal Methodology for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) is the SEI-defined methodology for appraising an organization’s software development processes and for determining whether the level of process implementation is sufficient to award the organization a particular CMMI rating.

PARTICIPATING SOFTWARE PROJECTS: Resource Prospector Rover Flight Software; EuCROPIS PowerCell Flight Software, and Generic Software Architecture for Prognostics (GSAP)
