Braxton Achieves CMMI Level 2 Process Maturity Rating

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Braxton Technologies, LLC today announced achievement of their Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 2 rating. CMMI is a framework for business process improvement that a company may apply to its standards, processes and procedures to implement practices that have proven successful worldwide. The CMMI process is gradual, and companies achieve level ratings as they institutionalize their processes.

“We were successful in quality improvement because everybody pitched in and helped.”

Braxton COO, Ken O’Neil, is justifiably proud. “This is Braxton’s first step of several to come in the area of process improvement that allows us to compete and team with larger contractors as an equal partner, not just an average small business,” Ken explains. “The entire Braxton organization remains focused on, and excited about, maintaining effective processes and continuously improving on them.”

The march toward the Level 2 assessment began over a year ago with a decision to work toward a Level 2 rating in developing engineered solutions. The challenge was to improve the existing processes unique to Braxton’s culture, processes that were mission-focused and prototype-driven. A team was assigned to coordinate the effort via an Engineering Process Group (EPG) and, across the company, employees assisted as needed. “It was a lot of work,” EPG chair, Rob Whitt, concedes. “We were successful in quality improvement because everybody pitched in and helped.”

Braxton is already looking forward to the next step. Ken O’Neil points out, “Braxton continues to grow our business communication and practices as we move toward the next CMMI rating, Level 3. We are also in the process of obtaining additional certifications through other standards organizations, like ISO. We want our customers to be confident that we will routinely and reliably deliver the technical solutions they need for mission success.”
