Using CMMI for Improvement at GSFC

By now, you've probably heard of CMMI, but aren't quite sure what it is or how it might affect you. This presentation will give you a brief overview of what CMMI (Capability Maturity Model, Integrated) is and how it will be used as a model for improving software and systems engineering practices across Goddard (GSFC). Discussions will include the goals, scope and schedule for improving software, as well as the phased implementation approach which began with a series of benchmarking appraisals. Results of these initial appraisals have been used to determine our current software implementation approach that includes process development, and deployment, training and acquisition improvements. Similar activities using the CMMI model for evaluating systems engineering will also be discussed.



Ms. Sally Godfrey has been with NASA for over 25 years, during which she has managed the development of many large flight dynamics software ground systems. She has also been involved the software process improvement as a member of the Software Engineering Laboratory at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) for over 10 years. Currently Ms. Godfrey is a member of the NASA Software Working Group, an Agency advisory group for recommending software engineering policies, standards, and best practices. Ms. Godfrey is the Software Process Improvement Project Manager for GSFC as well as the Center's Engineering Process Group Lead. She has also recently completed the SCAMPI (Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement) Lead Appraisers training class.
