capability maturity model
Originally developed by DoD's Software Engineering Institute (SEI), the Software CMM (SWCMM) was extensively used for disciplined software process improvement efforts. While references to it are still encountered, a more comprehensive and integrated process model—the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)—has replaced the SW-CMM. The SW-CMM was retired effective Dec. 31, 2005, and all SW-CMM ratings expired Dec. 31, 2007.
