This chapter provides an overview of the Capability Maturity Model for Software (CMM VI.1). CMM Vl.l describes the software engineering and management practices that characterize organizations as their processes for developing and maintaining software mature. This chapter stresses the need for a process maturity framework to prioritize improvement actions;(More)
The capability maturity model (CMM), developed to present sets of recommended practices in a number of key process areas that have been shown to enhance software-development and maintenance capability, is discussed. The CMM was designed to help developers select process-improvement strategies by determining their current process maturity and identifying the(More)

lows: The effort range values can be used in the schedule equation, EQ 6., to determine schedule range values. Software development trends towards reuse, reengineering, commercial off-the shelf (COTS) packages, object orientation, applications composition capabilities, non-sequential process models, rapid development approaches, and distributed middleware(More)
R apid change in information technology brings with it a frequent need to undo the effects of previous culture change efforts. This process, while often challenging and frustrating, offers numerous rewards for success. Organizations can change from slow, reactive, adversarial, separated software and systems engineering processes to unified, concurrent(More)
