September 2008 NJ SPIN Meeting Announcement


CMMI® Constellations for Development, Acquisition, and Services


The presentation briefly explores the development and evolution of CMMI constellations for development, acquisition, and services.

After a short reminder of the CMMI-DEV, primarily as a reference, a brief overview of the CMMI-ACQ is given, including a history of its evolution, comparison with the CMMI-DEV, components in the ACQ product suite, authorization, and status.

Subsequently, the presentation covers the CMMI constellation for services as currently configured, showing differences with the CMMI-DEV and status of its development.

Finally, the vision for the future evolution of these three constellations is discussed.
