Our Business Excellence (BizEx) approach incorporates the Capability Maturity Model® Integration model (CMMI), which was developed by the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University and describes the principles and practices underlying process maturity. It is intended to help organizations improve the maturity of their processes through discipline. OST maintains multiple libraries of our intellectual property which we seek to leverage in every engagement, thereby extending our value to our clients.
OST's Process Asset Library
There is no need to initiate a new process for each engagement. The processes for both management and engineering activities are documented, standardized, and integrated into standard software processes for the firm. Our clients win when OST delivers higher quality software in a timely manner.
OST Best Practices Library
OST does not lose sight of the fact that Best Practices serve as minimum standards for high-performing organizations to improve quality and enhance client services. OST stores and reuses Best Practices gleaned from prior engagements and through vigorous research into industry Best Practices worldwide.
OST Engineering Library
OST's Engineering Process discipline is in place to repeat earlier successes on projects with similar applications. OST maintains a number of engineering components such as Metrics, Estimation, Tools, and Standards. Our Engineering Library contributes to tooling that, when combined with Best Practices, produces world-class results through repeatable and reliable processes.
