After strongly embracing the concept of quality and getting certified in ISO 9001:2000 quality standard, iENGINEERING aimed for something higher, a certification based on a model designed specifically for the information technology industry; Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI). iENGINEERING started developing its processes based on CMMI Level 3 under guidance from a seasoned consultant on the model, Farhan Mirza, from Quality Assurance Institute (QAI). iENGINEERING staff worked aggressively and dedicatedly with Farhan to complete all the pre-requisites for the appraisal. This was a bigger challenge than ISO 9001:2000 certification since involvement of the whole organization was a must and every employee had a role to play. The whole culture of the organization was aligned with CMMI level 3 practices through extensive training sessions and mentoring. The hard work paid off and in November 2014, after three days of comprehensive Class A appraisal activity, iENGINEERING was awarded the CMMI Level 3 certification.
Comprehensive CMMI based process improvement procedures are part of the core software development cycle which have been thoroughly adopted by the company. iENGINEERING is motivated to implement the CMMI processes in order to:
- Develop high quality products
- Improve the schedule of the development cycle
- Achieve highest level of the customer satisfaction
- Enhance the team productivity
- Have better control over performance objectives
