Abstract:

Capability Maturity Model Integration CMMI is a process improvement approach that provides the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve organizational performance. It is estimated that over 1,200,000 people worldwide work in organizations that have conducted process appraisals using CMMI. Early versions of the CMMI paid little attention to architecture, agility, product lines, and other modern engineering practices. A significant change to the CMMI V1.3 models released in November 2010 is the new emphasis on the role of architecture in the design process. This presentation will address the basics of architecture-centric engineering and show where and how these practices are now reflected in the CMMI models. Topics will include process improvement and CMMI structure of the CMMI models essential architecture-centric engineering practices architecture-centric engineering practices in CMMI V1.3 additional modern engineering practices in CMMI V1.3.
