Workshop Overview

CMMI®-DEV (Capability Maturity Model Integration for Development Version 1.3) is a well known industry recognized model to propel process improvements in systems engineering and software engineering. The model provides a well structured path to process improvement leading to process excellence which in turn leads to delivery excellence and customer satisfaction.

The overview to CMMI® for Development Ver 1.3 course introduces participants to the model philosophy, structure and its fundamental concepts. The course discussion emphasizes understanding of the five maturity levels and the 22 Process Areas (PAs) of the model. The course details two representations, namely: Staged and Continuous representation. The course also focuses on the difference between version 1.2 and version 1.3.

Workshop Benefits

The workshop will help the participants to:

  • Understand the CMMI® framework
  • Understand the detailed requirements of the process areas in the CMMI®
  • Understand the difference between ver 1.2 and ver 1.3
  • Make valid judgments regarding the organization’s implementation of process areas
  • Identify issues that should be addressed in performing process improvements using the CMMI®

Who Should Attend

  • Organizations planning for CMMI® for Development journey
  • Organizations planning for transition from current CMMI®-DEV ver 1.2 to CMMI®-DEV ver 1.3
  • Process Group Team (EPG/ SEPG)/ Quality Assurance Team (QA/ SQA)/ Appraisal Team Members

Workshop Format

The workshop follows lecture supplemented with illustrations. The instructor maintains a high level of student interaction and discussion to satisfy the student’s needs in their work environments. Extensive experiential learning and cases studies will be integrated in the workshop proceedings.
