About the CMMI Product Suite
The CMMI® Product Suite was developed by teams of government, industry and SEI experts. It is a collection of best practices that enables organizations to improve their processes. The CMMI Product Suite is widely recognized as the de facto standard used to guide process improvement across a project, a division, or an entire organization. The CMMI Product Suite consists of the well-established CMMI for Development (CMMI-DEV), its accompanying appraisal program, the Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI), and supporting training and education courses. The full product suite helps to integrate traditionally separate organizational functions, sets process improvement goals and priorities, provides guidance for quality processes, and serves as a point of reference for appraising current processes.
