Capability Maturity Model (CMM) READ.ME Instructions on downloading CMM material The CMM notebook consists of two technical reports: SEI-93-TR-24 M.C. Paulk, B. Curtis, M.B. Chrissis, and C.V. Weber, "Capability Maturity Model for Software, Version 1.1" Software Engineering Institute, CMU/SEI-93-TR-24, February 1993. SEI-93-TR-25 M.C. Paulk, C.V. Weber, S. Garcia, M.B. Chrissis, and M. Bush, "Key Practices of the Capability Maturity Model, Version 1.1" Software Engineering Institute, CMU/SEI-93-TR-25, February 1993. The various ways of obtaining these technical reports are described in the file CMM_cover_letter.ascii This file, READ.ME, provides instructions for downloading ASCII, Postscript, RTF, or MacWord versions of the technical reports, as well as various other items that may be of interest. The files are contained in various subdirectories: ASCII Postscript MacWord RTF Misc In the initial net version some files had an index specifically for that section (e.g., ml2.ps had a Level 2 index at its end), which were used in building the master index in the TR-25 Appendices. They were originally left in for the use of people who might only want, for example, the Level 2 key practices. They were not, however, actually a part of TR-25 as distributed in hardcopy. These led to so much confusion for some people that the files were updated with those indices removed, so there have been two versions of CMM v1.1 available by Internet. The current version corresponds to the hardcopy as distributed by the SEI. = = = ASCII versions contained in subdirectory "ASCII" The ASCII text of "Capability Maturity Model for Software," SEI-93-TR-24, consists of one file: tr24.ascii The ASCII text of "Key Practices for the Capability Maturity Model for Software," SEI-93-TR-25, consists of the following files and should be printed in this order: tr25-overview.ascii overview of key practices and how to read them tr25-ml2.ascii KP's for ml2 tr25-ml3.ascii KP's for ml3 tr25-ml4.ascii KP's for ml4 tr25-ml5.ascii KP's for ml5 tr25-appendices.ascii the appendices to TR-25 (references, glossary, abridged practices, change history, index, change request form) You are warned that the ASCII text version of the report is very difficult to read because of the loss of formatting in going from Mac Word 5.0a to ASCII. These files were updated on 12 March 1993 due to the update to the RTF files giving us a version without embedded index entries, which may make them easier to use. = = = Mac Word 5.0a versions contained in the subdirectory "MacWord" The primary electronic version is a set of Mac Word 5.0a files, which have been compressed and formatted for net distribution using StuffIt and BinHex. The archives are: tr24.sit.hqx tr25.sit.hqx Since the last shareware version of StuffIt was 1.5.1, for wider compatibility the StuffIt archives are in that version. The Mac Word files use Palatino and NewCenturySchoolbook font, and you should use Word 5.0a to get the right spacing. = = = Postscript versions contained in the subdirectory "Postscript" The Postscript versions are in files tr24.ps tr24-title.ps title page for TR-24 and tr25-0-title.ps title page for TR-25 tr25-1-overview.ps tr25-2-ml2.ps tr25-3-ml3.ps tr25-4-ml4.ps tr25-5-ml5.ps tr25-6-appendices.ps release.ps contains the copyright page and release letter for the reports. WARNING: The first line in the Postscript file may have to be edited to be %! (Adobe version number removed) to work correctly when moving from Mac to Unix systems. If you have problems printing any .ps files, check this. Please don't contact me with Postscript problems; I'm not a Postscript expert. Also the Postscript files tend to be very large because of the fonts that are downloaded with them. There is a file called probs.postscript that has some of the e-mail I have received that may be of some use to the Postscript users. I have updated the Postscript files as of 7 May 1993 to correct (I hope) some of the problems, including the very large size of the files (by not including the font definitions). They should work better now... >> Binary versions of MS-Word files contained in the subdirectory "Binary" For those who can't handle StuffIt and Binhex, there is a binary version of the files in this subdirectory. Remember to set binary mode when downloading! = = = RTF versions contained in the subdirectory "RTF" For the PC users in the world, there is an RTF version of the files (as created from Word 5.0a) in subdirectory RTF. tr24.rtf tr25-1-overview.rtf tr25-2-ml2.rtf tr25-3-ml3.rtf tr25-4-ml4.rtf tr25-5-ml5.rtf tr25-6-appendices.rtf These files were updated on 12 March 1993. The RTF version lost all index entries, which meant that the "important terms" were missing from that version of the TRs. When this was reported, we removed the index entries and generated a version of CMM v1.1 that has no hidden text. This may have implications for table of contents, pagination, and the index, but should make the RTF version usable. We updated the ASCII version, which included the hidden text, as another effect of this update. = = = Letters to the Correspondence Group in subdirectory "CG_letters" These are in ASCII and named by date. = = = Working material for ISO JTC1/SC7/WG10 will be stored in "wg10" This is for working group use only, please. = = = Miscellaneous items contained in subdirectory "Misc" There is a change request template in the file CMM_change_request.ascii which you may use for electronically submitting your comments and suggestions. Please address them to firstname.lastname@example.org You may also use the Postscript version of the form in CMM_change_request.ps There are two bibliographies of papers and books relevant to process in the files biblio.short biblio.long They are provided for your information and are not SEI products. Comments and suggestions are welcome. There is an ascii copy of the 1987 maturity questionnaire in the file mq.v0 There is a mapping of the 1987 maturity questionnaire to CMM v1.0 in the file mqv0_cmm.map We will update this to v1.1 later, and there will be a new map when the new questionnaire comes out. There is a Postscript version of a paper entitled "Software Process Assessments: Issues and Lessons Learned" presented at ISQE92 in SPA-Lessons-Learned.ps There is a Postscript version of the CMM Tutorial given at the 5th SEPG National Meeting in Costa Mesa, CA, in April 1993 in CMM-tutorial.ps There is a Postscript version of a paper entitled "U.S. Quality Advances: The SEI's Capability Maturity Model" to be presented at the Third European Conference on Software Quality in Quality_Adv.ps Abstract The Software Engineering Institute has developed a five-level Capability Maturity Model for Software that describes how software organizations mature as they improve their software process. This model has evolved since its initial publication in 1987 to a reasonably detailed description of software engineering and management processes. This paper describes the evolution of the model in terms of its focuses at each maturity level and discusses some of the issues that may influence its future evolution. Changes from CMM v1.1 to v1.0.
