Introduction

The National Defense Industrial Association Systems Engineering Division is pleased to announce the 12th Annual CMMI® (Capability Maturity Model Integration) Technology Conference & User Group. The purpose of the conference is to exchange ideas, concepts and lessons learned concerning the continuing evolution, adoption and use of the CMMI® and its associated appraisal methods. This conference brings together CMMI® adopters, users, developers and appraisers, as well as those with general interest in process improvement.  It provides a forum for the free exchange of ideas and affords a unique  opportunity to meet with the sponsors, developers and stewards of the CMMI®, as well as those offering CMMI® training and implementation assistance.  Emphasis will be placed on CMMI® implementation methods and strategies, return on investment and program/project performance benefits.

BACKGROUND

The CMMI® was developed in cooperation with commercial and defense industry, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the Software Engineering Institute and has become the de facto standard for integrated process improvement across multiple disciplines and areas of interest within commercial and defense industry, and governments, worldwide. This conference addresses all categories of users and applications and seeks to help provide a better understanding of CMMI® implementation worldwide for all adopters and users. CMMI® has clearly demonstrated real and tangible benefits to users, including defect containment, earlier detection of defects, improved delivered product quality and overall improved product development performance. This conference will consider the effects the latest CMMI® version 1.3 product suite has had on improved business performance.
