CMMI for Development is a framework for any organization that builds products and/or services. Organizations that are involved with developing may include hardware and software companies, aerospace or automobile manufacturers, defence, telecommunications, etc.
CMMI-DEV applies to all organizations that must consider design and engineering during the development of a product or service.
An organization would benefit from employing CMMI-DEV when the guidance is needed to become more efficient due to customer demand to provide better products more rapidly and less expensively. The speed of technology and constant updates and introductions of new products has created a knowledgeable consumer who expects more with less.
However, this demand coupled with more complex products and services places a burden on organizations that must be able to manage this process which often involves integrating and acquiring products from a large network of providers.
CMMI for Development Process Areas
CMMI for Development includes process areas that encompass four categories: Engineering (this category is specific to CMMI for Development), Process Management, Project Management, and Support. These areas contain the specific practices expected to contribute to institutionalization. CMMI for Development Maturity Level 3 contains 18 Process Areas:
CMMI Development v3.0
CMMI Development V3.0 focuses on performance improvement requirements and key capabilities for companies that develop products, components, and services. Business problems like late delivery, poor quality, stretched resources, constant firefighting, inexperienced personnel and missed deadlines are common when building complex products and services. Managing and controlling the product development lifecycle has become more difficult in recent years.
Focusing on best practices, CMMI Development V3.0 improves an organization’s capability to develop quality products and services that meet the needs of customers and end users, improves time to market, improves product quality (and reduces defects), lowers costs, improves planning and budgeting.
