CMU/SEI Report NumberCMU/SEI-94-HB-001
The Software Process Framework (SPF) is a document that provides information contained in the Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model (CMM) for Software V.1.1 in a format suitable for process definition and improvement. The SPF allows users to determine if their organization's software process documentation is consistent with the recommendations made by the CMM. When organizational software process documentation is found to be inconsistent with the CMM, the SPF provides the ability to make informed decisions regarding the applicability of specific CMM recommendations.
