CMMI is the acronym of Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI). CMMI has been defined by Carnegie Mellon's Software Engineering Institute' (see www.sei.cmu.edu/cmmi/) and has become a de-facto standard world-wide how software development processes are assessed.
In general "a capability maturity model delineates the characteristics of a mature, capable process. It identifies the practices that are basic to implementing effective processes as well as advanced practices. It also assigns to those practices associated maturity levels ranging from unrepeatable to a mature, well-managed process. Typically a path is recommended through the various practices for achieving higher levels of maturity and, therefore, improve an organization's processes." (see www.sei.cmu.edu/cmmi/)
Establishing CMMI-compatible processes is in general a massive cultural and organizational change. As CMMI is not in particular tailored to embedded software development and does not take modelbased development of embedded control systems into consideration, the aim is to adapt the relevant aspects of CMMI to state-of-the-art embedded software engineering.
The embeddedCMMI Project was supported by the FIT-IT Embedded Systems
initiative of bmvit.
The project started on April 1st, 2004 an ended as planned on Juli 31, 2006.
