Capability Maturity Model Integration
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The Capability Maturity Model® Integration (CMMI) was created by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) as a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes. It can be used to guide process improvement across a project, a division, or an entire organization. 
The CMMI helps integrate traditionally separate organizational functions, set process improvement goals and priorities, provide guidance for quality processes, and provide a point of reference for appraising current processes.
The CMMI supersedes the Capability Maturity Model (CMM), its predecessor, and organizations using the CMM are encourages to upgrade to the CMMI.
