CD 101: Interpreting CMMI®-DEV Engineering Practices for Testing Organizations

Duration: 120 Minutes
Submit Inquiry


A suitably organized and executed test process can contribute to the success of a product line organization. Testing is used to identify defects during construction and to assure that completed products possess the qualities specified for the products. These activities are sequenced and scheduled so that a test activity occurs immediately following the construction activity whose output the test is intended to validate.

However, when an organization performs only testing related activities for externally developed products, the focus is different. CMMI® for Development (CMMI®-DEV), which is based on time tested maturity model for process improvement, can be extremely value adding to such organizations to improve their operations in a structured and well-defined manner. 

The objective of this webinar is to provide an overview to the participants on the implementations of engineering practices of CMMI®-DEV model to purely Testing Projects.


The webinar will help the participants:

  • Understand the testing lifecycle and implementation of the process areas of CMMI®-DEV v1.2
  • Understand the need of CMMI®-DEV in context of testing projects

Webinar Outline

The webinar would cover the following main areas:

  • Overview to different types of testing projects and their Lifecycle
  • Implementation overview to CMMI®-DEV v1.2 for Testing Projects (especially Engineering Areas)


This webinar would be useful for:

  • Quality Team
  • Process Improvement Team
  • Test Delivery Managers
  • Practitioners who will be participating in the CMMI®-DEV journey


  • Familiarity with CMMI®-DEV v1.2 model structure (basic understanding of Maturity Levels and Process Areas at all Maturity Levels)
  • Basic understanding of Testing Concepts
