The comprehensive CMMI Level 5 approach to quantitative management is based on practical experience gained from performing concurrent, multi-baseline system development in both commercial development and in government contracting roles. Metrics are reviewed regularly with Leadership. Root causal analysis procedures, combined with system monitoring tools used in fault identification and diagnosis are used to address and prevent future occurrences of problems encountered during development and in the operational environment.
