Project Defined Process and Quantitatively Composed Process

Quality Management System (QMS) is composed of manuals, policies, procedures, guidelines, templates checklists etc. QMS is defined at the organizational level. It is usually termed as Organizational Set of Standard Process (OSSP). Referring the common OSSP projects defines or composes the process specific to its mode of operation. The OSSP includes a metric repository which is […]

    Is this tailoring..? Definitely not.. tailoring is not a way to escape from a difficult task. Tailoring enables one to execute the task via an alternate mechanism instead of the usual procedure. Tailoring doent mean to simply skip the current procedure/process. If the process is difficult , then one must find  some other […]

15 Misconceptions in CMMI implementation

In continuation to the earlier article Easily ignored certain key points in CMMI implementation,  this article talks more on misconceptions in CMMI implementation. Misusing the model results in unproductive or unnecessary process, waste of resources, loss of credibility towards upcoming process improvement events and finally frustration and dissatisfaction. These could be avoided through proper senior […]

Easily ignored certain key points in CMMI implementation

Proper interpretation and understanding of a model is a vital part in any new model implementation in an organisation. During the course of action, we have a tendency to over simplify things and thus ignore certain key aspects. And in certain cases there happen some misconceptions too. This article tries to clarify such ignored aspects […]

The gateway to CMMI assessment

CMMI Assessment is the process for evaluating compliance and measuring the effectiveness of Specific Practices (SPs) and Generic Practices (GPs) of Process Areas (PAs) in the CMMI Framework. Every assessment process starts with scope definition and finally leading to assessment and sustenance. These common procedures are well explained in Stages in an assessment/certification process . In […]

How does the Generic Practice recursively apply to its related Process Area(s)?

Some natural synergies exist between the generic practices and their related process areas as explained in Evidences supporting implementation of CMMI GPs. Here the ‘recursive relationships between generic practices and their closely related process areas’ are explained. For more information on required evidences for each generic practices, please refer Evidences supporting Implementation of CMMI GPs

Evidences supporting implementation of CMMI GPs

Many process areas address institutionalization by supporting the implementation of the generic practices. An example is the Project Planning process area and GP 2.2. To implement this generic practice we need to implement the Project Planning process area, all or in part. In the below table such related process areas ( which are supporting the […]

History of CMMI

CMMI was originated by SEI (Software Engineering Institute), sponsored by US Department of Defence. Later on SEI has transferred CMMI-related products and activities to the CMMI Institute, a 100%-controlled subsidiary of Carnegie Innovations, Carnegie Mellon University’s technology commercialization enterprise. The below pictures illustrates the evolution of CMMI When the era of computerized information systems started […]

Controlled Sub Process Vs Uncontrolled Sub Process

Sub processes are components of a larger defined process. For example, a typical development process may be defined in terms of sub processes such as requirements development, design, build, review and test. The sub processes themselves may be further decomposed into other sub processes and process elements. Measurable parameters are defined for these sub processes […]

15 common mistakes while baselining data

Baselines are derived statistically using performance data collected over a period of time. They are indicators of current performance of an organization. Hence proper attention must be paid while deriving baselines as an error can cause even a loss of a business. There are some critical, but common mistakes observed in the baselining process as […]
