ALC Software Team Achieves Highest Level of Capability
Meeting and exceeding standards for software development helped the 309th Software Maintenance Group and 516th Software Maintenance Squadron achieve a Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), Level 5 rating on March 26, 2015."I am extremely happy with the 309th SMXG process improvement efforts. It is a real tribute to our team to achieve 100 percent green across all elements with no identified weaknesses. This is just the beginning and will translate to improved software quality, lower cost and better schedule predictability across our products," stated Karl Rogers, group director. During the appraisal out-brief, the SMXG displayed a slogan which read, "CMMI is the AFSC Way!" This is more than a slogan, however, because the best practices of CMMI align perfectly with the AFSC Way. And to that end, SMXG leaders use CMMI and the AFSC Way in parallel.
