With the reappraisal on three of our key company business units and the product development within those units, we are making sure that we have the processes in place so that our customers continue receiving the very best we have to offer.
Elbit Systems of America was appraised at a Maturity Level 3 through the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) Institute for our Airborne Systems, C4I/Homeland Security, and Ground Combat & Precision Targeting business units. This was a reappraisal for our programs, examining current company processes against CMMI best practices. The assessment found the company continues to perform at a prescribed Level 3 Maturity, with processes that are well characterized and understood. The company’s Maturity Level rating will be in place until 2024 for all three business units.
“Maintaining a Maturity Level 3 from CMMI is an important recognition for our efforts, said Tiffany Nesbit, Vice President of Engineering at Elbit America. “The Aerospace and Defense Industry is a highly regulated space, so it’s important for companies like Elbit America to have solid, defined processes in place. Not only does this ensure our work is done in a repeatable manner, but it also leads to higher quality work and more dependable solutions for our customers.”
