The ISO 9001:2015 Standard

Centauri has been an ISO 9001 quality certified organization since 2015. The ISO 9001:2015 standard is based on a number of quality management principles, including a strong customer focus, the motivation and commitment of top management, the identification and mitigation of risks and continual seeking of opportunities for improvement. The goal of the ISO 9001 quality certification is to ensure that Centauri’s Government and commercial customers receive consistently high-quality products and services.

Certification required that Centauri work closely with BSI – an accredited third party auditing organization – to thoroughly review the company’s internal quality management system processes to ensure we are capable of consistently delivering products and services that meet customers’ needs and expectations.

Through continual improvement of our quality and company processes and attention to customer mission and requirements, we aspire to deliver innovative solutions and achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction.​

CMMI Maturity Level 2

What does Centauri’s CMMI maturity level 2 rating mean for our customers?

  • Centauri’s work and processes have received the highest form of third-party validation.
  • Centauri manages projects with an established set of practices.
  • Centauri is dedicated to continuous improvement and producing great work that makes a difference.

Centauri achieved a rating of CMMI Maturity Level 2 for its Software Development team.  The appraisal was performed by ACE Guides and resulted in the determination on 16 November 2017.  This confirms that Centauri’s software development programs have ensured requirements are managed and that processes are planned, performed, measured and controlled.

CMMI is a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performance.  An appraisal at maturity level 2 indicates the organization is performing at a “managed” level. At this level, projects have ensured processes are planned and executed in accordance with policy; the projects employ skilled people who have adequate resources to produce controlled outputs; involve relevant stakeholders; are monitored, controlled and reviewed; and are evaluated for adherence to their process descriptions.

David J. Dzaran, President and CEO of Centauri, commented: “The CMMI level 2 appraisal is an important reaffirmation and validation of Centauri’s total commitment to the success of our customers’ missions by enhancing our performance at the organizational level for our software programs. The CMMI Level 2 appraisal compliments Centauri’s focus on continuous quality improvement as an ISO 9001 registered organization and enhances our well-known reputation for excellence with the customers we support.”
