What are the major differences between CMMI Development V2.0 (CMMI-DEV), CMMI Services V2.0 (CMMI-SVC), and CMMI Supplier Management V2.0 (CMMI-SPM)?

The CMMI is an integrated set of best practices that improve performance and key capabilities for the following current and potential CMMI Institute predefined model views:

  • CMMI Development V2.0 (CMMI-DEV), based, in part, on the CMMI for Development v1.3 model for improving processes and performance for developing better products and services.
  • CMMI Services V2.0 (CMMI-SVC), based, in part, on the CMMI for Services v1.3 model for improving capabilities and processes for providing better service performance
  • CMMI Supplier Management V2.0 (CMMI-SPM), based, in part, on the CMMI for Acquisition v1.3 model for improving processes and performance for optimizing the supply chain

CMMI Development, CMMI Supplier Management, and CMMI Services are domain views of the CMMI V2.0 Model.

Organizations can implement practices across domain views. In the future, customized views can also be created and used to address any given challenge, issue, or improvement opportunity. This leverages the entire set of best practices to improve organizational performance and key capabilities.
