CMMI was developed by a group from industry, government, and the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at CMU. CMMI models provide guidance for developing or improving processes that meet the business goals of an organization. CMMI-DEV provides guidance for process improvement across a project, department, or organization that will lead to lower costs, improved quality, and on time delivery of products and services. CMMI-DEV guidance covers the life cycles of products from conception through delivery and maintenance. These best practices are flexible enough to apply to a variety of industries.
CMMI ML2 V1.3 certifies that NVR has adopted best practices in processes from planning to quality assurance, from requirements management to service delivery.
ISO/IEC 20000 is the first international standard for IT service management, and was originally developed to reflect best practice guidance contained within the ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) framework, although it equally supports other IT service management frameworks and approaches. ISO/IEC 20000-1:2011 includes "the design, transition, delivery and improvement of services that fulfill service requirements and provide value for both the customer and the service provider.
ISO/IEC 20000-1:2011 certifies that NVR takes an integrated process approach as a service provider, and plans, establishes, implements, operates, monitors, reviews, maintains and improves a service management system (SMS).
The ISO 9000 family addresses various aspects of quality management and contains some of ISO’s best known standards. The standards provide guidance and tools for companies and organizations who want to ensure that their products and services consistently meet customer’s requirements, and that quality is consistently improved. ISO 9001:2015 sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the family that can be certified to.
ISO 9001:2015 certifies that NVR has adopted a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.
