CMMI, Capability Maturity Model Integrated for Systems Engineering/Software Engineering

CMMI is a developed capability maturity model based on the CMM integrated into system and software engineering. The actual level of maturity statement within a software process evaluation can proceed in two model representation lines: staged representation (determination of maturity based on fixed key processes) and continuous representation (determination of maturity of every key process). Basically, the CMMI is compatible with ISO IEC TR 15504.

Coaching

Couching is a process of directing individuals or groups using appropriate methods so as to unblock their perception of the system, or the role attitude and to initiate self-organisation processes. A coach himself/herself should be able on his/her own or with his/her associates to develop his/her abilities to solve problems and better manage work requirements or the application of methods. Coaching occurs in two forms:

Code

In a sense, a code is a source code representing logic, data structures of software component development and documented commentaries in a programming language so that further processing is enabled using a translator (e.g. Assembler, Compiler).

Communication

Communication between business partners usually has a form of a personal interview; however, information and data exchanges via electronic media, e.g. telephone, fax, e-mail or data transmission from one CAQ system to another are increasingly frequent.

Communication system

See Routing-System.
