Honeywell Receives Highest Recognition in Software Development
March 13, 2014
Honeywell’s Building Solutions and Process Solutions businesses have been appraised at Maturity Level 5 of Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), the highest and most prestigious level of global recognition in software development that a company can achieve. About 6 percent of the more than 6,000 organizations with published appraisals results have achieved this status.
CMMI is a process improvement appraisal framework administered by the CMMI Institute to determine the maturity of an organization's software and development processes. By reaching CMMI Maturity Level 5, Honeywell's Building and Process Solutions businesses have shown superior and well-defined, standardized software development processes. Honeywell's longstanding commitment to Six Sigma and continuous process improvement provides the culture, tools, methodologies and skills to enable the development and use of high-maturity practices for software development.
"To be appraised at Maturity Level 5 is a significant accomplishment that few companies have achieved," said Dan Sheflin, chief technology officer, Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions. "The CMMI rating is the highest form of third-party validation that we can receive in software development, and our rigorous processes have led to as much as a 25% improvement in development cycle time for complex software projects. We are honored to achieve this recognition."
