Capability Maturity Model Integration CMMI
IQC-The ISO Pros
The business has its ins and outs, and it’s actually one of the most diverse and the most difficult industries known to man. Because of the complications, it has when it comes to the improvement and the development of businesses, a lot of techniques and strategies have been put into place.
One of which is the Capability Maturity Model Integration or the CMMI. This model is a business model that is created to help businesses, companies, and organizations in carrying out process development tasks that would lead to the reduction or the overall eradication of risk in a system or a software – originally.
The original CMMI version was tailored to be applied to systems and software, which made it ultra-specific to a certain industry. In its latest version, however, the CMMI can now be applied even in hardware, as well as all other service development projects across other business industries.
The CMMI – Simplified
Many people are not aware of it, but the CMMI model is both considered as a behavioral model and a process and it can be utilized by companies, businesses, and organizations in managing and enhancing the performance of their operations by determining and distinguishing certain standards. Part of the main goals of the CMMI is to create and to invent business environments where all of the services, personnel, products, and departments are all efficient and effective.
Levels of CMMI
The CMMI is not a process or a behavioral model that is done one-time big time; it takes time and it goes through a couple of levels first before it arrives at the final point of maturity. Each level is defined as the “maturity level” and it’s a plain where it looks to achieve a more mature software process every level given.
Basically, each maturity level would have an added layer in the foundation for the continuity of the improvement of the processes – each of the CMMI levels is outlined in the hierarchy as (1) Initial; (2) Managed; (3) Defined; (4) Quantitatively Managed; (5) Optimizing.
Level 1 – Initial
Organizations that are under level 1 maturity often are categorized as the companies that offer services and products that operate and function well, but they usually go over the allocated budget and do not meet the given schedule.
Level 2 – Managed
Level 2 maturity of the CMMI is known to be the processes that are known and characterized by projects that are responsive. More often than not, everything in this level of maturity is studied and managed. This is where the status of work products meet the specific objectives and goals but are not well-managed enough.
Level 3 – Defined
In this maturity phase, everything from the smallest processes, the parts, and materials, even the personnel have all undergone a specific set of characterization and standardization. What’s missing in the 2nd level of maturity is usually what’s seen in the third level. All processes, work, products, and services are served in better detail and in a wider scope of understanding.
Level 4 – Quantitatively Managed
From the smallest detail to the largest of sets, everything is included and is done to better cope with the requirements of the standard. This is the phase where an organization is able to master the processes; where they’re able to deal with problems and obstacles efficiently and effectively.
Level 5 – Optimizing
Mastering everything is not the endpoint of it. As a matter of fact, it is not even half of it. Part of learning and improvement is what’s needed in this phase and the 5th level of maturity, optimization is where everything lies. This calls for the continuous and overflowing improvement of the business processes to come up with a better and more improved product or service without sacrificing costs and expenses for the company.
