SYE 6045 Process Assessment and Improvement

This course provides an operational understanding of the differences between process standards and assessment standards where the latter provide a formal and structured means of examining a specific process or focus area to determine process capability or process maturity in an enterprise. Both EIA/IS-731-1, "Systems Engineering Capability Model", and Capability Maturity Model® Integration (CMMISM) will be examined and the strengths and weaknesses reviewed with respect to consideration of use on projects.
