Organizational Process Assets are the documentation that is related to the CMMI Implementation in a CMMI Compliant Organization. Process Assets in organizations are known in following variants like Process Assets Library (PAL), Process Database (PD), Process Repository (PR), Software Process Database (SPDB) etc. Process Asset in an organization plays an important role in the CMMI Compliance and most importantly Continual Improvement in the organization.
Documents in a Process Asset Library include process documentation, project documentation for closed projects, lessons learnt, risks database, estimation sheets, metrics data (project and organizational), training material etc. Documentation to be placed in the Process Assets Repository are selected based on their importance to the project teams in reducing the rework, better estimation, lesser defects, better project management and process improvement activities in the organization.
