|CMMI Level 2 Appraised
TSC has implemented Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) processes to further increase quality and process improvement. CMMI was developed by the Software Engineering Institute to help organizations perform engineering services in a predictable manner. In February 2012, TSC was formally appraised for and achieved a CMMI Maturity Level 2 rating for Development Version 1.3, and we expect to achieve Maturity Level 3 in this calendar year.
LifeCycle-ONE, offered by Technology Service Corporation (TSC), is a unique costing tool that supports oversight and encourages discipline in any acquisition decision-making process.
LifeCycle-One provides a common structure for Operating & Support (O&S) cost estimates based on user input of performance parameter values closely aligned with core logistics elements, such as supply support, maintenance planning and management, manpower and personnel, training and training support. The O&S costs produced are based on the design parameter values for the specific system being acquired. Pre-programmed numbers or industry averages are not used.
LifeCycle-ONE’s unique value proposition is that it links system design decisions made early in the acquisition cycle to their resulting system operating and support costs through system life. Management now has a tool which can help them meet both system performance and affordability objectives.
