Home / Methodolog / CMMi / Capability Maturity Model Integrated - Dev  

CMM was the initial model laid down by Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, which underwent several revisions based on the feedback received from the industry. CMM based on these revisions has transformed into an upgraded model called CMMI – Dev (Ver 1.2), where CMMI stands for Capability Maturity Model Integration.

CMMI Maturity level 3 requires an organization to have a defined set of standard processes and its institutionalization throughout the Organization. Every level of CMMI has got some Process Areas which need to be institutionalized to achieve that Maturity level. To achieve any Maturity level process areas falling under that level as well as the process areas that fall under the level(s) below need to be fulfilled. There are 18 Process areas (7 – Level 2, 11 – Level 3) which must be fulfilled by an organization in order to achieve level 3. All 18 Process Areas falls under different categories as Process Management, Project Management, Engineering and Support process Areas.
