Abstract : The Systems Engineering Capability Maturity Model (SE-CMM) is a result of the Enterprise Process Improvement Collaboration (EPIC), which includes the Consortium, as well as other industry and government systems engineering organizations. The SE-CMM includes 18 process areas which are organized into Project (Management), Engineering, and Organization process area categories. The model defines a base set of essential practices for each process area; the adequacy with which each base practice is performed is evaluated through a set of generic practices and is rated against a 6-level scale for each process area. This major update of the SE-CMM incorporates the results of many pilots since the release of Version 1.0 of the SE-CMM. It also expands the scope of the model slightly and incorporates additional feedback from review comments. With the release of Version 1.1 of the SE-CMM the official piloting phase for the SE-CMM by EPIC is complete.
