Hydroid Appraised at CMMI V2.0 Maturity Level 3

Thursday, May 30, 2019

Marine robotic systems manufacturer Hydroid, a subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime, announced Thursday it was appraised at Maturity Level 3 of the CMMI Institute’s Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) V2.0.

The appraisal was performed by JFR Consulting and included a comprehensive examination of Hydroid’s business and development processes for its autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and marine robotics products. Hydroid had been previously appraised in 2016 at Maturity Level 3 using the CMMI V1.3.

“Always looking to optimize our business performance, we are pleased to have received this appraisal result,” said Duane Fotheringham, president of Hydroid. “Having been independently benchmarked by an authorized Lead Appraiser, it reaffirms our willingness to continually and consistently meet our performance commitments with confidence. Additionally, unlike many organizations, Hydroid has taken it a step further and adopted the CMMI to improve processes across program management, operations and all engineering disciplines.”

CMMI is a capability improvement framework that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve company performance. The level 3 appraisal indicates that Hydroid is performing at a “defined” level. At this level, company processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools and methods. It also means that Hydroid’s set of end-to-end product development processes, which is the basis for maturity level 3, is established and improved over time.
