Capability Maturity Model (CMM) : 

Capability Maturity Model (CMM) CMM was developed at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie-Melon University in Pittsburgh, PA, funded largely by the U.S. Defense Department. CMM is design to measure, and thereby improve, the process of software development. SEI establishes standards; it does not perform evaluations of individual firms. Evaluations of firms are done by third parties; these third-party evaluators have varying degrees of expertise and creditability. The highest level of CMM is Level Five; less than a hundred organizations in the world are certified as Level Five. CMM is similar to ISO 9000 and 9001; but while CMM focuses primarily on improving performance, ISO 9000 and 9001 focus on establishing and maintaining careful documentation, procedures, and standards.

Capability Maturity Model (CMM) : 

Capability Maturity Model (CMM) What are the Five Levels of CMM? Initial – poorly controlled; ad hoc; difficult to repeat successful activities; dependent upon the skills of the individual developers Repeatable – disciplined processes; can repeat successful activities and tasks; developers learn from each other Defined – standard, consistent processes; a database of development “best practices” is created and maintained; these “best practice” are readily available and understood Managed – all development activities follow these corporate “best practices”; compliance with these development standards is mandatory Optimizing – continuous process of seeking out best practices from around the world; active, continuous improvement Computer Information Systems • Robinson College of Business • Georgia State University
