*CMMI® (Capability Maturity Model® Integration) is a process improvement model for the development of products and services. It consists of best practices that address development and maintenance activities that cover the product lifecycle from conception through delivery and maintenance, and has become a world de facto standard.
Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPISM) is designed
to provide benchmark ratings relative to the CMMI models. It is applicable
to a wide range of appraisal usage modes, including both internal process
improvement and external capability determination. SCAMPI satisfies the
Appraisal Requirements for CMMI (ARC) of a Class A appraisal method and
supports the conduct of assessments compliant to ISO/IEC 15504.
