This is a three-day public course introduces system and software engineering managers and practitioners, appraisal team members, and the engineering process group (e.g. SEPG, EPG) members to CMMI® fundamental concepts. CMMI model is a collection of best practices and can be used as tools that help organization improve their ability to develop and maintain quality products and services. CMMI models are an integration of best practices from proven discipline-specific process improvements models, including the CMMI® Software, EIA 731, and the Integrated Product Development CMM.
Introduction to CMMI
Who should attend this course?
- Product developers and process implementers,
- Members of CMMI appraisal teams who require the official SEI authorized training,
- The software and the system communities,
- Managers involved in the development or maintenance of software ,
- Anyone interested in improving quality, productivity or competitiveness through a process approach.
Software engineering managers and practitioners, appraisal team members and engineering process members will be able to describe the fundamentals of model-based process improvement and introduce CMMI model content.
Successful completion of this course will enable participants to:
- Describe the fundamentals of model-based process improvement,
- Illustrate the benefits of process improvement,
- Introduce CMMI model content.
The course contains the following topics:
- Model-based process improvement,
- Overview of CMMI components,
- Process areas of CMMI models,
- Structure of the continuous and staged representations,
- Next steps.
- Reading homework is required the first and second evenings of the course,
- Successful completion of this course requires that participants actively participate in classroom discussions and exercises in all three days, not missing any classroom time.
Students completing this course will be able to:
- Understand the benefits of defining an organisation’s processes ,
- Learn about the internal CMMI structure, the concepts and the terminology,
- Understand the possible use of CMMI for the software and/or the system (operations and support) departments,
