General Dynamics Land Systems Achieves CMMI Level V Software Engineering Ranking
General Dynamics Land Systems Achieves CMMI Level V Software Engineering Ranking

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Land Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics , has achieved a Level 5 rating on the Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) scale for Software Engineering. Maturity Level 5 is the highest CMMI rating and focuses on optimizing process performance through incremental and innovative technological improvements.

Previously, General Dynamics Land Systems software organization achieved Capability Maturity Model (CMM) Level 5 status in December, 2002. The maturity focus of CMM is software; CMMI further embraces engineering interfaces and integration.

This CMMI Level 5 achievement represents the pinnacle of a 14-year journey of continuous software process improvements at General Dynamics Land Systems. In 1997, the company was the first ground combat systems manufacturer in the United States to reach CMM Level 3. Since that achievement, the General Dynamics Land Systems software organization has promoted continuous quantitative process improvement throughout all its software programs. The software organization has realized a measured growth of 20 percent improvement in schedule and cost performance since its CMM Level 5 achievement in 2002. Additionally, benchmark studies have indicated that the General Dynamics Land Systems software organization is 21 percent more efficient than defense industry averages, with 30 percent fewer defects per line of code.

The General Dynamics Land Systems software organization is a supplier of production quality software for various armored ground systems programs. Over the last 16 years, the software organization has developed more than 3.5 million lines of production software for such programs as the Abrams main battle tank, the USMC's Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV), and Stryker eight-wheeled armored military vehicle.

The Land Systems software organization is also the software supplier for three FCS Manned Ground Vehicle variants: the Mounted Combat System (MCS), Command and Control Vehicle (C2V) and the Reconnaissance and Surveillance (RSV) vehicle. General Dynamics Land Systems will integrate more than one million lines of company-developed software for these three variants with more than 20 million lines of software from other suppliers on the FCS program. The success of this highly complex software integration effort requires the high maturity CMMI processes of a Level 5 organization.

This external appraisal was conducted by KAMO Consultancy.

General Dynamics, headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia, employs approximately 72,700 people worldwide and had 2005 revenue of $21.2 billion. The company is a market leader in mission-critical information systems and technologies; land and expeditionary combat systems, armaments and munitions; shipbuilding and marine systems; and business aviation.
