Day by day more and more organizations are moving towards quality management using different standards like ISO, Prince2, and CMMI etc. Out of these standards, CMMI is based on industry best practices and proven techniques. With popularity of CMMI, confusion related to CMMI implementations is also wide spread in the industry.
One of the most common confusion among CMMI Implementers arises while creating CMMI compliant QMS (Quality Management System). They generally ask question about mapping of the CMMI Process Areas with Organizational Processes – whether to map a Process Area with a single Process or to merge different Process Areas into one Process.
As far as CMMI is concerned, it does not provide any input on this. It is up to the CMMI Implementers to decide the best route of creating more Processes out of the CMMI Processes or creating Processes after merging CMMI Process Areas into few Processes.
You have to study carefully about the integration and collaboration of different teams and activities while deciding about the Processes. For small organizations you can merge different CMMI Process Areas into single process and in Medium to Large organizations it can be other way round.
