Evaluating and Improving Your Efforts

Organizations run on data. They use it to manage projects and the enterprise, make decisions, and guide improvement. In the quest to beat the competition by making products and processes better, faster, and cheaper, having and using high quality data and information is an input to every key decision.

But how reliable is the data you collect and use?

SEMA is developing the Measurement and Analysis Infrastructure Diagnostic (MAID) method to help you assess your measurement and analysis infrastructure and evaluate the quality of your data. MAID is intended to help you answer these questions:

  • How good is our data?
  • Are we doing the right things in terms of measurement and analysis?
  • Are we doing them well?
  • How good is the information we generate?
  • How can we improve our measurement processes and improve information quality?
  • How can we meet the CMMI-based goals associated with measurement and analysis?
