Abstract

The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is developing the Measurement and Analysis Infrastructure Diagnostic (MAID) method. MAID is a criterion-based evaluation method that facilitates the examination and evaluation of data quality issues linked to how the organization implements measurement and analysis practices.

This document presents the set of criteria used during a MAID evaluation. The criteria serve as a checklist for an evaluator to use to rate the quality of an organization’s measurement and analysis practices and the quality of the measurement information that results from the implementation of those practices.

The evaluation itself is carried out by a team following the MAID method. The MAID method is described briefly in this document. A full description of the method will be published in a separate document in 2010.
