SINGAPORE EXCHANGE MAIN BOARD-LISTED STRATECH SYSTEMS SUCCESSFULLY APPRAISED AT CMMI LEVEL 3

Singapore, 30th August 2004 – Singapore Exchange Main Board-listed Stratech Systems Limited ("Stratech") announced today that the emerging world-class Advanced Technology and e-Systems developer has joined the ranks of leading IT organizations with its successful appraisal at Maturity Level 3 of Capability Maturity Model-Integrated (“CMMI”).

Stratech is one of the first Singapore IT solutions companies to achieve this process maturity level after an independent IT capability evaluation involving extensive review and analysis of Stratech’s IT solutions and processes.

The CMMI is a model from Software Engineering Institute (“SEI”) for improving and appraising the performance of organizational processes. It includes process performance appraisal in four major areas: project management, engineering management, process management and support processes management. The model provides an extensible framework for process improvement with multi-disciplinary approach towards Stratech covering software engineering, systems engineering and supplier sourcing.

“The appraisal of Stratech at Maturity Level 3 demonstrates the rapid strides achieved by Stratech to develop its technologies and processes to the highest international standards. We have succeeded in explicitly aligning management and engineering activities to business objectives, and improve project life cycles activities to better meet customer demands”, said Dr David K.M. Chew , Executive Chairman of Stratech.

“We look forward to be a leader in the industry by constantly ensuring world-class quality standards in the process methodology and practices. Now that we have demonstrated process compliance to CMMI maturity Level 3, we are working aggressively towards attaining the highest Level 5 possibly by middle of next year,” he said.

Stratech was first awarded ISO 9002:1994 in 1996, followed by an upgrade to ISO 9001:1994 in 1998 and then to ISO 9001:2000 standard in 2002.
