Capabilities Maturity Model
<software> (CMM) The Software Engineering Institute's model of software
engineering that specifies five levels of maturity of the processes of a
software organisation. CMM offers a framework for evolutionary process
improvement. Originally applied to software development (SE-CMM), it has been
expanded to cover other areas including Human Resources and Software
The levels - focii - and key process areas are:

Level 3 Defined - Engineering Process - Organisation Process Focus, Organisation
Process Definition, Peer Reviews, Training Program, Inter-group Coordination,
