A CMMI Constellation may concentrate on area of knowledge. For example, CMMI, now, has got three constellations – CMMI-DEV, CMMI-SVC and CMMI-ACQ. DEV stands for Development (suitable for software and systems development companies, etc.), SVC stands for Services (suitable for companies delivering services like IT Services, Helpdesk services, Staff-augmentation services, etc.), ACQ stands for acquisition and is for those companies interested in large scale procurements of product and product components. There are common elements that exist in these three constellations. For a graphical representation of common elements and linkages, refer to the graphic below:
