Abstract:

Computers and software have permeated every aspect of the military. The Department of Defense DoD faces an ever-increasing demand on systems and software engineering to solve the complexities of an interconnected battlespace. Capability Maturation ModelR Integration CMMI is a process improvement approach that help organizations to integrate disparate functions and legacy systems. Many DoD contractors advertise high levels of process capability or organizational maturity as measured by either the Continuous or Staged representations of Capability Maturity Model Integration, yet from the perspective of acquisition program managers on some high visibility individual programs, strong systems engineering and project management practices still appear to be lacking. This briefing looks at the issues plaguing DoDs attempts at smooth integration and how CMMI version1.2 had act as part of the solution.
