Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement


Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement

The Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) is the official SEI method to provide benchmark-quality ratings relative to CMMI models. SCAMPI appraisals are used to identify strengths and weaknesses of current processes, reveal development/acquisition risks, and determine capability and maturity level ratings. They are mostly used either as part of a process improvement program or for rating prospective suppliers. The method defines the appraisal process as consisting of preparation; on-site activities; preliminary observations, findings, and ratings; final reporting; and follow-on activities. [cite book

Class A, B, and C Appraisals

The suite of documents associated with a particular version of the CMMI includes a requirements specification called the "Appraisal Requirements for CMMI" (ARC), [cite paper

] which specifies three levels of formality for appraisals: Class A, B, and C. Formal (Class A) SCAMPIs are conducted by SEI-authorized Lead Appraisers who use the SCAMPI A "Method Definition Document" (MDD) [cite paper
