An appraisal at a maturity level 5 indicates that the organization is performing at an "optimizing" level. At this level, an organization continually improves its processes based on a quantitative understanding of its business objectives and performance needs. The organization uses a quantitative approach to understand the variation inherent in the process and the causes of process outcomes.
The re-appraisal is testimony to the organization's efforts towards excellence in streamlining process improvements, encouraging a productive, efficient culture that decreases risks in software, product and service development. The new CMMI Level 5 status is valid for a stipulated time frame.
