Hi!

I work in a software company and my company wants to be a CMM company. So how to become a CMM level (1,2...5) company?
What are the basic pre-requisite a company should possess? (like ISO..etc)
To whom we should approach?
Cost & time involved?

I know it is too hard to explain the above most basic questions. But i require your help. Please give me your inputs.

Thank You!

There are a number of discussion here on CMMI (formerly CMM). As far as I am aware there is no specific pre-requisite.

Time and cost depends upon company size, existing systems, etc. so it's hard to give an estimate without some background information.

Have you visited the CMMI website?

If you do not have someone in your company who is "CMMI Literate" you are probably looking at some serious $$$ in consulting fees.

Hi singusingu!

CMMI certification can be gained with an "appraisal" process, in normal conditions it is a SCAMP appraisal.
I would suggest to find the nearest partner of SEI and contact them for further details.

The maturity level level driven appraisal is the most common, and you should define prior the appraisal your target.
In order to understand the type of representation and target level profiles, I would suggest, to read Part One from the recent revision of CMMI for Development:
http://www.sei.cmu.edu/library/abstracts/reports/10tr033.cfm

CMMI is challenging and I would only consider the formal appraisal process if it inevitable origins from customer request, any other situation I would only build inhouse expertise and use the principles in process improvement of CMMI inhouse.

If your company not ISO certified yet I would not look first for a CMMI certification, however it is depend of course on several factors.

The cost is very much depends on the level you target and the relevant knowledge you have in the company, and of course the management commitment as well as your company awareness.

I heard, nowadays CMMI Certificate is not issuing to the organizations which organization is going to take CMMI Level 1, 2, 3 & 4. Organization eligible to get CMMI Certificate if they for for CMMI Level 5. Other can get only a confirmation letter.

Is it correct.

Re: CMMI Certificate

I am not sure, but sounds like a gossip.
Level 5 is only a top of the iceberg, I would very much surprised.
Nevertheless, we have for one division on ongoing one.
