Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) helps organizations increase the maturity of their processes to improve long-term business performance. CMMI provides the latest best practices for product and service development, maintenance, and acquisition.
SEMA techniques help you meet the requirements for the measurement
& analysis-related process areas of CMMI. SEMA researches the most
effective ways to implement measurement and analysis processes, from
the Measurement and Analysis Support Process Area at maturity level 2
to the high maturity techniques needed for maturity levels 4 and 5.
CMMI includes a description of measurement and
analysis activities with specific practices that guide projects and
organizations in aligning measurement needs and objectives with a
measurement approach that will provide objective results. To find out
more about the role of measurement and analysis in CMMI, consider
High Maturity Methods
More and more organizations are striving for and reaching high
maturity status, yet there is still an insufficient shared
understanding of which measurement and analysis related practices are
appropriate for high maturity organizations. SEMA is conducting a
series of high maturity workshops to allow high maturity organizations
to share best practices and case studies. Proceedings of these
workshops will be available as technical notes. The first report has
been published: CMMI High Maturity Measurement and Analysis Workshop Report: March 2008.
More information about high maturity methods can be found on the CMMI and Six Sigma page.
