The essay is a continuation of my essay titled "Traceability: A Radical Approach Based on User Involvement".   Part three discusses the nine components of customer involvement which will be assessed in the model.  I am catching up to cleaning up the blog and posting the essay, I had a problem with my email system that required my full attention.

Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) CMMI is a process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements of effective processes that ultimately improve their performance. CMMI can be used to guide process improvement across a project, a division, or an entire organization. It helps integrate traditionally separate organizational functions, set process improvement goals and priorities, provide guidance for quality processes, and provide a point of reference for appraising current processes. CMMI in software engineering and organizational development is a trademarked process improvement approach that provides organizations with the essential elements for effective process improvement. It can be used to guide process improvement across a project, a division, or an entire organization.
