The registered appraisal was performed on the division’s operations in Melbourne, Florida, against the CMMI® for Systems Engineering and Software Engineering (CMMI®-SE/SW) criteria. The appraisal measured process and product excellence using an integrated set of processes applied across the division’s functional organizations.
