Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute and Lockheed-Martin to Host Process Improvement in Multimodel Environments Workshop

 

Pittsburgh, PA, March 27, 2008 – All effective businesses face challenges to achieving and sustaining competitive advantage while complying with regulations. To meet these challenges, the highest performing organizations apply reference models, standards, and improvement technologies. Typically, this creates an environment where several improvement initiatives are concurrently implemented at different hierarchical levels and across organizational functions – leading different parts of an organization to champion the technologies that best address their problems.

The Carnegie Mellon® Software Engineering Institute (SEI) believes there can be a more comprehensive way to achieve the integration of multiple technologies for process improvement within an organization. The SEI approach is to harmonize the process improvement models and will develop harmonization methods through the SEI-led project called Process Improvement in Multimodel Environments (PrIME). 

In advance of the project, Lockheed-Martin and the SEI are co-sponsoring the workshop Hard Questions for Process Improvement in Multimodel Environments to share current research and methods for multimodel process improvement and to gauge the current state of the practice in commercial, government, and defense organizations. Lockheed-Martin is an example of a business that has seen benefits from successfully organizing multiple models for process improvement.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

What:

Hard Questions for Process Improvement in Multimodel Environments                          

When:

8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on May 8, 2008  (Time is approximate.)

Where:

Registration:

The workshop is free, but you must register.  

Workshop participants will

  • learn about current thinking and relevant developments in process improvement in a multimodel environment
  • strengthen their knowledge about the challenges, options, and solutions currently facing organizations today and what still needs to be investigated by the community
  • network with people interested in multimodel issues
  • gather ideas for immediate use
  • provide information that influences the SEI's research agenda
