The CMMI® for Development provides guidance for applying best practices in a software development organization. It can also be applied to software maintenance and enhancements. For software support services it may be useful to rather consider CMMI for Services. CMMI stands for Capability Maturity Model Intergration.
There are essentially 3 services that is provided with the CMMI for Development
- The CMMI for Development V1-3 model which contain all the best practices
- 3 Day Introduction to CMMI for Development training services
- SCAMPI (Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement) appraisal method that is used to assess an organisation’s practices against the CMMI model’s set of best practices
This three-day course introduces managers and practitioners, appraisal team members, and process improvement teams to fundamental concepts of the CMMI. The CMMI for Development (CMMI-DEV) model is a tool that helps organisations to improve their ability to develop and maintain quality products and services. The course is composed of lectures and class exercises, with ample opportunity for participant questions and discussions.
After attending the course, participants will be able to describe the components of the CMMI-DEV model and their relationships, as well as the process areas in the CMMI-DEV model, and locate relevant information in the model.
Demix uses the CMMI Institute's SCAMPI (Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement) to conduct our appraisals. In the standard SCAMPI appraisal there are 3 classes of appraisals, listed below. Demix have added one more type, the Class-D, to cater for our online appraisals.
The output of a SCAMPI (A, B and C) is a strength and weaknesses report on the selected process areas of the best practice model that are being used (CMMI for Development, CMMI for Acquisition, CMMI for Services, People CMM, ITIL, TOGAF or other).
To understand a company’s performance against the CMMI for Development, various approaches can be followed
