  A good exposure and understanding of the structure of the Software CMM can be obtained to serve as 

     a prerequisite for a more elaborate treatment of the Software CMM framework 



This tutorial is a good introductory course to provide an overview of the SW-CMM framework. The SW-CMM framework helps an organization to build a robust change management initiative of its software development process. The SW-CMM orients itself toward building a strong foundation to support and sustain ongoing continuous process improvement by continuously exploring better ways of doing things. The framework is a staged approach to managing changes to the software development process by making "incremental changes" through a transition management approach. 


Some of the key areas addressed by the SW-CMM framework include project management, requirements management, change management, quality management, product engineering, inter-group coordination and defect prevention . When viewed as a staged model, at Level 2 the Repeatable Level, a sense of responsibility and effective management of processes is inculcated by building a foundation of process discipline to create a CULTURE OF COMMITMENT. At Level 3 the Defined Level, software engineering and management processes for development and maintenance are integrated into a coherent whole by establishing a process definition standard - called the Organizational Standard Software Process to create a CULTURE OF BEST PRACTICES. At Level 4 the Managed Level, product quality, service quality and performance measures are understood in statistical terms to support fact-based decision-making by institutionalizing quantitative management of engineering processes to create a CULTURE OF MANAGED PRACTICES. At Level 5 the Optimizing Level, change management is applied to a continuous process improvement program to establish a CULTURE OF CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT & EMPOWERMENT.   

This tutorial provides ample scope to gain a good understanding of these essential requirements of the SW-CMM to keep an organization vibrant and alive.
