Raytheon Business Awarded Renewal Of Capability Maturity Model Integration Level 3 Certification

GARLAND, Texas, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has renewed its Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI ®) Level 3 certification rating for Development at the company's Intelligence and Information Systems (IIS) business. This CMMI Level 3 certification enables IIS to further drive customer success across all sites through efficient program execution built on integrated common processes.

"This is a huge achievement that demonstrates our continued focus on disciplined execution while ensuring we deliver quality products and solutions to meet our customers' needs," said Lynn Mortensen, vice president of IIS Engineering.

IIS first attained CMMI Level 3 for Systems and Software Engineering for all sites in 2006. The business expanded on this achievement by attaining CMMI Level 3 for Development and Integrated Product and Process Development in 2009. This achievement was recertified in October 2012 using CMMI-Development v1.3.

In 2012, IIS reached a CMMI Level 3 benchmark that only 52 percent of all U.S. appraisals recorded by the CMMI Institute at Carnegie Mellon University meet. IIS is a leading provider of intelligence and information solutions to the government.

About the CMMI InstituteThe CMMI Institute, based in Pittsburgh, is a 100 percent-controlled subsidiary of Carnegie Innovations, Carnegie Mellon University's technology commercialization enterprise. The Institute is dedicated to elevating organizational performance through best-in-class solutions to real-world challenges. It is the home of the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), a process improvement framework that guides organizations in software and systems development, acquisition, and service delivery to create high-performance, high-maturity cultures. The CMMI Institute Product Suite also includes the People Capability Maturity Model for workforce development and the Data Management Maturity Model.

CMMI is recognized worldwide as the standard by which businesses can measure the maturity of their technical and managerial processes. The levels indicate an organization's ability to provide predictable quality while managing and controlling project risks. CMMI helps integrate traditionally separate organizational functions, set process improvement goals and priorities, provide guidance for quality processes, and provide a point of reference for appraising current processes. CMMI is registered in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office by Carnegie Mellon University.
