Abstract:

The Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement SCAMPIService Mark is designed to provide benchmark quality ratings relative to Capability Maturity Modelregistered Integration CMMIService Mark models. It is applicable to a wide range of appraisal usage modes, including both internal process improvement and external capability determinations. SCAMP satisfies all of the Appraisal Requirements for CMMI ARC requirements for a Class A appraisal method and can support the conduct of ISOIEC 15504 assessments. The SCAMPI Method Definition Document describes the requirements, activities, and practices associated with each of the processes that compose the SCAMPI method. It is intended to be one of the elements of the infrastructure within which SCAMPI Lead Appraisers conduct a SCAMPI appraisal. Precise listings of required practices, parameters, and variation limits, as well as optional practices and guidance for enacting the method, are covered. An overview of the methods context, concepts, and architecture is also provided.
