 Capability Maturity Model Integration Project 

Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) Project

CMMI is a process improvement model used worldwide by organizations in diverse application domains to improve business processes for development (CMMI-DEV), services (CMMI-SVC), and acquisition (CMMI-ACQ). The current version, CMMI v1.3, was released in November 2010, improving the model architecture of all three constellations, strengthening the high maturity process areas to reflect industry best practices, and improving informative material to reflect current engineering practices and adding guidance for the use of Agile methods. 

The NDIA Systems Engineering Division was the industry sponsor for the CMMI project and provided CMMI Steering Group leadership from the inception of CMMI in the 1990’s up until its transition in 2013 from the Software Engineering Institute to the CMMI Institute as a mature technology with broad worldwide acceptance.

The NDIA Systems Engineering Division continues to advocate the use of CMMI-based improvement to achieve business performance value, as described in its position paper, and supports the ongoing improvement of the CMMI product suite through stakeholder groups and its NDIA CMMI Working Group.
