Quality has been of central strategic importance to CRITICAL Software since its formation in 1998. The continuous improvement of software development and systems engineering processes has allowed us to reach outstanding, internationally-recognised standards in organisational and process maturity.
Quality is embedded in attitudes, in the way we work, in software development processes and in methodologies.
Quality is embedded deep within our values and culture, providing a key framework for us to operate systematically, confidently and efficiently.
Our Integrated Management System (IMS) is certified according to CMMI-DEV Maturity Level 5, ISO 9001, EN 9100, NATO AQAP 2210 & 2110 and CyberEssentials standards.
- Our Quality Management System is inspired and based on the CMMI-DEV model, ISO 15504 (also known as SPICE - Software Process Improvement and Capability Determination), ISO 12207 - Software Life Cycles, ESA standards and proven PMI and Six Sigma methodologies
- We were selected by the European Space Agency to be pilot pioneers for SPiCE 4 Space (S4S) based on ISO 15504 – Process Assessment)
- We are a review committee member of the ESA-ECSS standards (e.g. IV&V)
