The purpose of the SEIR is to provide a forum for the contribution and exchange of information concerning process improvement activities. Registered members of the SEIR can exchange questions or tips and contribute experiences or examples to assist each other with their implementation efforts. As a by-product of contributing this information, SEIR members are building a knowledge base in this repository for their future use.
Use of the repository is free, but visitors will need to register and receive a password in order to view the information. The repository includes the following categories: General Information, FAQ/News Groups, Benefits/Case Studies, and Implementation (including Lessons Learned).
