Measurement and Analysis in Capability Maturity Model Integration Models and Software Process Improvement

Please note that current and future CMMI research, training, and information has been transitioned to the CMMI Institute, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Carnegie Mellon University.

Abstract

The explicit incorporation of measurement and analysis as a distinct process area in the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) provides management with the visibility and focus that organizations need to guide the use of measurement in their process improvement efforts, which was missing in previous models. This article reviews the content and rationale behind the new process area and describes how the ideas introduced there are further elaborated and evolved throughout capability maturity model integration models.
