Abstract: Reading Time: < 1 minute Leverage CMMI L2 Systems Engineering (Radar & Radio Navigation Systems).

The german R&D facility of an internationally leading technology company had the challenge to establish CMMI Level 2 system engineering processes for their radar, radio, and navigation systems development.

Five development projects were chosen within a gap analysis as pilots for improving the following process areas:

  • project management, planning and monitoring (PP, PMC),
  • quality management (PPQA),
  • requirements management/engineering (RD, REQM).

For these five pilots, my assignments as the CMMI consultant on-site were:

  • coordinate the on-site improvement activities with the international, corporate, CMMI program;
  • design, implement, and roll-out the local improvements: artefacts, roles, processes;
  • train and coach all team members in the new procedures.
