CMMI for Development is the exact same content as CMMI for services:
CMMI for Development (CMMI-DEV) offers a possibility to eliminate or avoid these barriers, problems faced by many organizations worldwide. CMMI for Development comprises of best practices that address development activities applicable to products and services developed by an organization. It also comprises practices that include the product’s lifecycle covering from beginning to delivery and maintenance.
CMMI for Development is defined as a reference model that includes activities meant for developing both products and services. Many organizations including software, hardware, aerospace, banking, defense companies and others uses CMMI for Development for process improvement activities.
CMMI for Development includes software industry best practices that comprise project management, process management, systems engineering, hardware engineering, software engineering, and other supporting processes used in development and maintenance of software products and projects. CMMI-DEV contains 22 process areas – out of these 16 are core process areas, 1 is a shared process area, and 5 are development specific process areas.
CMMI Maturity Level 1: Initial
CMMI Maturity Level 1 is the most lowest or initial maturity level.
At CMMI Maturity Level 1, organizations have following characteristics:
- Processes are usually in ad hoc and disordered mode
- There is not environment for processes or process improvement
- Projects are generally over budget or have schedule overrun.
- These organizations are people centric and success is dependent on their skills.
- They are specialized in few kind of activities/projects.
- They are not able to repeat success with surety.
There is no Appraisal for CMMI Maturity Level 1. As per SEI all organizations not having Maturity
Levels from 2 to 5 are at Maturity Level 1.
CMMI Maturity Level 2: Managed
At maturity level 2, organizations have certain processes and projects are executed according with
At CMMI Maturity Level 2, organizations have following characteristics:
- There are no central processes and projects are free to use processes for their projects.
- Project scope, estimations, schedules are more realistic as compared to CMMI Maturity Level 1.
Changes to requirements are managed.
- Project Management is done effectively.
- Supplier management is managed at this level.
- Skilled people are engaged with the project who have adequate knowledge and experience to
produce desired and controlled outputs
Even after following processes in different projects, results of each project may vary to a large
extent, because there is not Process Management focus at CMMI Maturity Level 2, which is a
focus area at CMMI Maturity Level 3.
CMMI Maturity Level 3: Defined
At maturity level 3, all processes are well defined and understood at organizational level. , There is a
central repository, QMS consisting of standards, tools, procedures, and methods. And over time, the
organizational processes and standards are improved. Tailoring guidelines can be applied by
projects to establish its defined processes by tailoring the organization’s set of standard processes.
At CMMI Maturity Level 3, organizations have following characteristics:
- There is a central repository of Processes, Standards, Guidelines, Templates and other required
artifacts. Projects use same templates across organization.
- Processes are updated regularly. Projects also share learning and other important items like risks
database, estimations etc.
- A Process Improvement Group is functional at Org Level.
- Organizational Training Planning and execution is an important aspect.
- Engineering activities are more focused.
- There is more integration between Project Management, Engineering and Support activities.
At maturity level 3, the processes related to the maturity level 2 process areas are further improved
by the organization. To achieve maturity level 3, Generic practices related to with generic goal 3 are
applied that were not addressed at maturity level 2. CMMI Maturity Level 3 contains maximum
number of processes.
CMMI Maturity Level 4: Quantitatively Managed
At maturity level 4, quantitative objectives are established for quality and process performance by
the organization and projects used them as criteria in managing projects. Quantitative objectives are
generally defined on the basis of the needs of the customer, organization, end users, and process
implementers. Quality and process performance is managed throughout the life of projects.
At CMMI Maturity Level 4 i.e. Quantitatively Managed level, the organizational focus is on the
Quantitative Management of controlling the project and processes performance through the use of
At CMMI Maturity Level 4, organizations have following characteristics:
- Projects and Processes are managed using Statistical Tools
- Project and Org Data collected at CMMI Maturity Level 3 is utilised to generate Process Capability
Baseline and Process Performance Models. All projects follow these models to predict and control
- Variations in performance are analysed and corrective actions are planned and applied.
- Focus is to improve the processes in terms of quantitative control and narrowing down on
variations, leading to improvement in productivity, least cycle time, less defects and issues etc.
CMMI Maturity Level 4 enhances the organization capability to predict and then to control
variations in performance.
CMMI Maturity Level 5: Optimizing
An organization frequently develops its processes at maturity level 5. Process development is
based on a measurable perceptive of business goals and its presentation requirements. A
quantifiable method is used by an organization to recognize the deviation essentials in the process
and to the bases of route effects.
At CMMI Maturity Level 5 i.e. the Optimizing level the focus of the organization is to find the causes
of variations and then to take corrective action for those variations, leading to the removal of causes
of variations and optimizing the output that means continuous improvement. Process Improvements
are also enforced through usage of a new tools, technology and technique.
At CMMI Maturity Level 5, organizations have following characteristics:
- Innovations are implemented in tools, technology or techniques for continual improvements
throughout the organization.
- Defects are collected from various sources for analysis, root causes are identified and corrective
actions are planned and implemented.
This way CMMI Maturity Level 5 led the organization on the way to the continuous improvement
through optimization of different activities.
