The CMMI Project has released version 1.1 of the CMMI model for public use. This model is available in both staged and continuous representations, each containing material to address both systems engineering and software engineering disciplines.  Versions of the model to address Integrated Product & Process Development (IPPD) and Supplier Sourcing (SS) are also available.

In addition, a description of the SCAMPI assessment method is available.

The following PDF documents are available for download from the SEI website:

Although the various versions of the model cover many disciplines, organizations may elect to apply the model only to their software engineering work.

Current users of CMM® for Software will find Volume II of the staged representation easiest to use. The SEI has announced that the SW-CMM will be phased out over the new few years, and organizations have been encouraged to begin their transition.  Many organizations began their transitions about a year ago.  Click here to obtain information on conducting a Transition Readiness analysis.

Current users of the SE-CMM or EIA/IS 731 (SECM) will find Volume I of the continuous representation easiest to use.

Deciding which model representation is right for you is a difficult task.  If you would like help understanding the various models, or would like a Transition Readiness analysis for your organization, please contact us.
