Track: Advancing Your Capability

Presentation Title: Flexible and evolutionary measurement mechanism of software development in advancement from ML2 to high maturity levels

Presentation Summary: An organization's measurement capability represents to some extent its degree of development process maturity. Measurement & Analysis (MA) is a key process to support the improvement from fundamental maturity to high maturity levels of CMMI. A well-design MA mechanism can help organization to collect process performance data systematically and support a variety of information needs for different maturity levels. This paper presented an empirical solution from the perspective of high maturity to establish a flexible and evolutionary MA mechanism from maturity level 2. It can help organization to adopt high maturity more efficiently and effectively.
