Constellation: Collection of CMMI ® components that includes the model, its training materials and appraisal-related documents for an area of interest. CMMI models for development, services and acquisition
Model for development provides amplifications for the systems engineering, software engineering, and hardware engineering disciplines
“ Additions” used to expand constellations for specific additional content - CMMI ® Dev has one such addition (CMMI ® - Dev + IPPD) (In V1.1, IPPD was a discipline.)
Based on the initial efforts to maximize commonality among CMMI models, 16 of the 22 process areas of CMMI-DEV comprise the process improvement core for the three areas of interest currently being pursued: development, acquisition, and services.
