The CMMI provides a framework for establishing the crucial elements of effective processes to:

  • Improve delivery of performance, cost, and schedule
  • Provide competitive world-class products and services
  • Implement an integrated enterprise business perspective

A long-established premise is that the quality of the processes used to manufacture a product has a major influence on its quality. This is highly visible in major corporations such as Toyota and through the CMMI; the same concept can be applied to systems and software engineering.

The CMMI is a “gold” standard that leverages and continues to leverage off the experiences of leading global organisations. By investing in CMMI, you are preparing for the future and leveraging off best-in-class.

To cover the end-to-end engineering life-cycle phases, CMMI is available as three constellations

  • CMMI for Development
  • CMMI for Services
  • CMMI for Acquisition

CMMI for Acquisition

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link and the CMMI for Acquisition provides a framework for initiating and managing the successful acquisition of products and services.

It provides expert guidance on:

  • Sourcing and selecting suppliers
  • Developing, negotiating and awarding supplier agreements
  • Managing the acquisition of both products and services
  • Oversight of supplier activities

CMMI for Development

With its origins dating back to the Software CMM, the CMMI for Development provides a framework of world best practice that can be applied to the engineering of software and systems.

It provides expert guidance on:

  • Eliciting and analysing product requirements to ensure the “right” product is developed
  • Developing alternative solutions to determine the best design to implement.
  • Integrating and assembling components, both software and hardware, to ensure the final product behaves properly and meets the end-user needs.

CMMI for Services

Extending the benefits of CMMI for Development, the CMMI for Services provides a framework for delivering quality services to customers and end users.

Whilst CMMI for Services targets the support and sustainment phase of a product life-cycle, it can also be applied to any industry that provides services such as finance, health care, retail or hospitality.

It provides expert guidance on:

  • Delivering standard services and developing strategic services
  • Introducing or upgrading a new service whilst maintaining the current levels of service
  • Resolving and preventing incidents
  • Continuing services during catastrophic events such as fire or flood
  • Managing the availability and capacity of services

All three constellations are unpinned by a core of practices including:

  • Managing requirements and risk
  • Planning, monitoring and controlling projects and work
  • Staff development and training
  • Measurement programs
  • Quality assurance
  • Formalising decision making
  • Establishing an infrastructure for managing and sharing knowledge
  • Predicting service performance and product quality
  • Introducing new technologies and innovation
