In SCAMPI appraisals, the FIDO Database manages all appraisal data, reports, and presentations and is highly-rated by appraisal teams. With a FIDO Database, teams spend less time organising data and have more time available to analyze the data and prepare findings.
The Appraisal Requirements for CMMI (ARC) defines the requirements considered essential to appraisal methods intended for use with Capability Maturity Model Integration CMMI models. In addition, a set of appraisal classes is defined, based on typical applications of appraisal methods. These classes are intended primarily for developers of appraisal methods to use with CMMI capability models in the context of the CMMI Product Suite.
The Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) is designed to provide benchmark quality ratings relative to Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) models. It is applicable to a wide range of appraisal usage modes, including both internal process improvement and external capability determinations. SCAMPI satisfies all of the Appraisal Requirements for CMMI requirements for a Class A appraisal method and supports the conduct of ISO/IEC 15504 assessments as well.
