CMMI Methodology

Occam Solutions is a CMMI Level 2 (Development) rated company. On a daily basis, in both our internal and customer program operations, our skilled personnel leverage CMMI best practices, processes, and deliverables to provide a common, integrated vision for performance improvement. The ultimate benefit of improved performance is decreased costs, improved on-time delivery, improved productivity, and improved customer satisfaction. The CMMI Development model is a valuable guide for appraising current company processes, setting process improvement goals and priorities, and periodically assessing company adherence to quality management processes and, as necessary, the need for process adherence or improvement.

From day one at New Employee Orientation through Annual Refresher training, all Occam Employees receive initial and continuation CMMI training. Trained employees thereafter reference organizational and project standards and written process descriptions via Occam’s MS SharePoint portal. The portal serves as Occam’s repository of institutional knowledge and is referenced by both corporate and project assigned employees in their daily work to produce consistently high quality deliverables.

The intersection of Occam’s high quality people, processes, and deliverables is ExcellenceYour Goals. Our Mission.

What is CMMI?

CMMI is a proven approach to performance management with decades of results showing it works. Organizations using CMMI have predictable cost, schedule, and quality—business results that serve as discriminators among their competitors. CMMI is built with practices and goals seen in thousands of real organizations worldwide.

CMMI® (Capability Maturity Model® Integration) models are collections of best practices that help organizations to improve their processes. These models are developed by product teams with members from industry, government, and the Software Engineering Institute (SEI). The model that Occam bases its practices after is called CMMI for Development (CMMI-DEV), which provides a comprehensive integrated set of guidelines for developing products and services.

Occam is currently at CMMI Level 2, and has utilized this approach with the following processes: Configuration Management, Measurement and Analysis, Project Monitoring and Control, Project Planning, Process and Product, Quality Assurance, Requirements Management, and Supplier Agreement Management.
