Base Measure

Base Measure: A distinct property or characteristic of an entity and the method for quantifying it. Prácticas Básicas: En la representación continua, todas las prácticas específicas con un nivel de capacidad de 1.

Base Practices

Base Practices: In the continuous representation, all the specific practices with a capability level of 1. Prácticas Básicas En la representación continua, todas las prácticas específicas con un nivel de capacidad de 1.


Baseline: The term baseline is normally used to denote such a reference point. A baseline is an approved snapshot of the system at appropriate points in the development life cycle. A baseline establishes a formal base for defining subsequent change. Without this line or reference point, the notion […]

Equivalent Staging: Equivalent staging is a target staging, created using the continuous representation that is defined so that the results of using the target staging can be compared to the maturity levels of the staged representation. Estadificación Equivalente: La estadificación equivalente es una estadificación objetivo, creada mediante la representación […]

Exit Criteria

Exit Criteria: States of being that must be present before an effort can end successfully. Criterios de Salida: Estados de ser que deben estar presentes antes de que un esfuerzo pueda terminar con éxito.

Expected CMMI

Expected CMMI:CMMI components that explain what may be done to satisfy a required CMMI component. Model users can implement the expected components explicitly or implement equivalent alternative practices to these components. Specific and generic practices are expected model components. Componentes CMMI esperados Componentes: CMMI que explican qué se puede hacer para […]

Functional Analysis

Functional Analysis: Examination of a defined function to identify all the sub functions necessary to the accomplishment of that function; identification of functional relationships and interfaces (internal and external) and capturing these in a functional architecture; and flow down of upper level performance requirements and assignment of these requirements […]
