CMMI: Capability Maturity Model Integration

Request an CMMI Guideline document


What CMMI is: A process improvement model that provides a set of industry-recognized practices to address productivity, performance, costs and stakeholder satisfaction in the systems engineering and software development process.

  • Helps your organization examine the effectiveness of your processes
  • Establishes priorities for improvement
  • Helps you implement these improvements

How CMMI is different: The CMMI provides an integrated, consistent, enduring framework for enterprise-wide process improvement and can accommodate new initiatives as future needs are identified. Unlike single-discipline or stove-pipe models that can result in confusion and higher costs when implemented together.

Who it is for: Those providing systems and software engineering products and services to organizations who transform customer needs expectations, and constraints into products, and supporting these products throughout their life. If you manufacture, code, analyze, maintain or document a product, you need this!

CMMI Maturity Levels:

A maturity level is a well-defined evolutionary plateau toward achieving a mature software process. Each maturity level provides a layer in the foundation for continuous process improvement.

In CMMI models with a staged representation, there are five maturity levels designated by the numbers 1 through 5 whereby 1 is the lowest level of maturity and 5 the highest. The five levels are actually:

  1. Initial
  2. Managed
  3. Defined
  4. Quantitatively Managed
  5. Optimizing

CMMI Implementation Benefits

  • More explicitly link their management and engineering activities to their business objectives
  • Expand their visibility into their product life cycle and engineering activities to ensure that their products and  services meet customer expectations
  • Incorporate lessons learned from additional areas of best practice (e.g., measurement and risk management)
