The Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) is designed to provide benchmark quality ratings relative to Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) models and the People CMM. The SCAMPI Method Definition Document (MDD) describes the requirements, activities, and practices associated with the processes that compose the SCAMPI method. The MDD also contains precise descriptions of the method's context, concepts, and architecture.
