In this tutorial, let’s learn about different CMMI Levels. The capability Maturity Model defines five different maturity levels. CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration) is a quality standard and process improvement model. It helps organizations to improve their performance and strive for continuous improvement.
Quality Assurance Models:
The CMMI Levels are as follows:
- CMMI Level 1 -> Initial
- CMMI Level 2 -> Managed
- CMMI Level 3 -> Defined
- CMMI Level 4 -> Quantitatively Managed
- CMMI Level 5 -> Optimizing
CMMI Level 1
This is the initial level. Process followed by the organization is chaotic and uncontrolled or poorly controlled. The process followed by the organization is undocumented and the environment is unstable.
CMMI Level 2
The process followed by the organization is managed to some extent, it is undocumented. The process is generally reactive. and little effort is made to control or assure quality.
CMMI Level 3
The process followed by the organization is managed, efforts are made to control and assure quality. Risks in the organization are managed. Incidents are resolved and prevented from reoccurrence.
CMMI Level 4
The process followed by the organization is measured, controlled, and documented. Quality is controlled and assured, incidents are prevented. The organization also emphasizes customer satisfaction.
CMMI Level 5
The main focus for the organization at this level is on optimizing the process. The organization strives to continually improve the process.
