NOVEMBER 12, 2019 (WASHINGTOIN, DC) – Alion Science and Technology, a global industry leader in the design and delivery of complex engineering solutions for Defense and Intelligence agencies announced today that its software development and services practices have once again been appraised at Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) Level 3. The rating applies to CMMI Development (CMMI DEV) as well as CMMI Services and Service System Development (CMMI SVC + SSD). The appraisal was performed by the Software Quality Center, LLC and measured Alion’s modeling and simulation solutions ranging from interactive training to decision support, along with custom software and services that can enhance enterprise IT operations.

“Alion is committed to providing our customers with the highest level of quality and best value. Receiving CMMI Level 3 appraisal validates that our teams are dedicated to industry best practices and apply continuous improvements to exceed expectations and deliver top quality solutions to our mission partners,” said Katie Selbe, Alion Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Cyber Network Solutions Group.

An appraisal at maturity level 3 indicates the organization is performing at a “defined” level. At this level, processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. The organization’s set of standard processes, which is the basis for maturity level 3, is established and improved over time. The CMMI appraisal process provides a standard industry benchmark to measure an organization’s capability and performance. The CMMI DEV model is used primarily by software engineering activities, while the CMMI SVC+SSD model is used by organizations that provide on-going services of a highly technical nature. Alion has previously been appraised at CMMI level 3 for CMMI DEV and CMMI SVC+SSD in 2016 and 2013.
