CMMI is comprised of a collection of best practices designed to promote improved performance and is considered a global standard for efficiency.

An appraisal at Maturity Level 3 indicates Sparton DLS is performing at a level where processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods. Sparton's set of standard processes, which is the basis for Maturity Level 3, is established and has improved over time.

Sparton DeLeon Springs, LLC, a leader in the design, development, and manufacture of sonobuoy systems for the U.S. Navy, is at the forefront of technologies that align with the Defense Department’s Undersea and Ground Warfare Technology roadmaps.

The original principle underlying the IPC’s ionic cleanliness requirement was that the mobility of surface ions, detectable from SIR measurements, would correlate to a maximum value of detectable ionic elements permissible on the circuit surface. The industry required a test that was both fast and accurate for process control. Thus, a simplified ion chromatograph that was able to detect ionic elements without differentiation was created.
