Course DescriptionThe Introduction to Capability
Maturity Model-Integrated - SE/SW, Staged Representation
course introduces participants to the CMM-Integrated Model and
its fundamental concepts. The course discussion emphasizes
understanding of the five maturity levels and the grouping of
process areas (PAs). The course in based on version 1.1 of the CMMI.
This three-day course describes a framework that
organizations can use to determine their ability to develop
and maintain systems; it is a model for organizational
improvement. The course is composed of lectures and class
exercises with ample opportunity for participant questions and
Introduction to CMMI helps prepare participants to make
valid judgments regarding an organization's implementation of
the process areas. The course is helpful in identifying issues
that should be addressed in performing process improvement as
structured by the CMMI model.
Course TopicsTopics covered in this course include:
- CMMI overview
- Engineering process maturity - CMMI principles
- Maturity levels and process areas of the CMMI Model
- Linking the process areas together
- Interpreting CMMI
- Application of CMMI
Course ObjectivesThe course will help participants
- Understand the importance of having defined processes
within an engineering organization and the rationale for
- Comprehend the architecture of the CMMI models (maturity
levels, process areas, goals, and generic practices).
- Gain a sufficient understanding of PA components to
function on a CMMI-Based Appraisal team member.
- Be able to apply the CMMI principles to meet the needs
of systems engineering and software engineering
PrerequisitesParticipants must have knowledge of
systems engineering, software engineering, and management,
including exposure to quality assurance, configuration
management, and basic management principles. This course can
fulfill one of the prerequisites for CMMI-Based Appraisal
