MTU Friedrichshafen has received an accolade from German consultancy Kugler Maag CIE for achieving process improvements in its electronics development section according to CMMI criteria. CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) is an internationally recognized maturity measurement model. It is used as a yardstick for determining how highly developed processes are and how well they are being practically implemented. The consultancy awarded a Level 2 certificate to MTU. "Achievement of CMMI Level 2 is the culmination of many years of process work and is a milestone in electronics development at MTU," said Dr Jens Kohler, head of the electronics development department.
Staff at the MTU electronics section in Friedrichshafen develop electronic control equipment for use in engine management. These include the ADEC (Advanced Diesel Engine Control) system that controls, adjusts and monitors all key engine functions, as well as the exhaust aftertreatment system. ADEC calculates, for example, parameters such as fuel injection timing and duration with the aim of achieving optimum fuel consumption and the lowest possible engine emissions.
