Could the Software Engineering Institute be Wrong About Statistical Process Control?
Presented at the Systems & Software Technology Conference (SSTC) 2007

Jun 22, 2007
Summary: Statistical Process Control (SPC)—is it appropriate for a software development organization? If you're asking yourself this question, you're not alone. The application of SPC has a great track record in the arena of physical product manufacturing, but are these concepts as portable to engineering and digital product manufacturing processes as much published literature, and many consultants, would have us believe? This presentation will discuss a profound realization made during the road to CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integrated) maturity level 5 which was attained in October, 2005 at Lockheed Martin Integrated Systems and Solutions (IS&S). The presentation will also provide guidance on how to determine whether SPC is appropriate for a given process or not.
