Practical Support for CMMI®-SW Project Documentation:
Using IEEE Software Engineering Standards
John Walz, The Sutton Group
The slide presentation from this meeting is available in an Acrobat file.
Software Engineering Institute (SEI) has created the popular Capability Maturity Model Integrated for Software CMMI-SW in 2002. While the requirements and guidance are over 600 pages, software engineering companies have freedom on the content and format of typical software engineering project documents. IEEE software engineering standards codify industries best practices for all critical software engineering processes and their outputs. This presentation will describe the steps that software engineering companies can take to implement CMMI along with critical project documents supported with IEEE standards best practices.
About the Presenter
John Walz has been involved in the IEEE software engineering standards development process for the past decade. His experience in both standards development and practical implementation led to the 2005 book "Practical Support for CMMI-SW Software Project Documentation Using IEEE Software Engineering Standards".
