Improved schedule adherence, quality and productivity? Do your markets demand a certain maturity level of your engineering processes? Global competition is increasing and the entry hurdles into established markets is getting easier. It is expected that systems with increasing complexity are developed at shorter time and with high quality. Models such as CMMI, Automotive SPICE and ISO 15504 help in improving engineering and management processes. However, they must be well-understood and implemented to provide tangible benefits rather than ending as academic exercises.

Our Solution

  • Training and coaching of projects and management in CMMI and SPICE
  • Official introduction to CMMI with CMMI Institute (previous SEI) certificate

Reference Project

Initial Situation

A Fortune 100 company with globally distributed development was looking for a lean approach to improve engineering processes and enhance its capability to deliver. The objective was to gain tangible improvements that sustainably enhance efficiency in their various product lines.

We implemented individually tailored improvement projects for each of the business units in order to address their respective challenges, needs and products. Improvement objectives and milestones were derived from business objectives. They were realized with incremental improvement steps to avoid overly long cycles with no measurable results. CMMI served as a tool to orchestrate improvements and to get orientation with suitable industry benchmarks.

With our incremental approach the company could reduce their field failure rates by 10-20% on a yearly basis while at the same time reducing their cost of non-quality by over 20% per year.
