    Six Sigma and CMM ?


    Does CMM maturity correlate to improvement in software product quality ?

    For example, the highest level of quality in current discussion is Six Sigma.

    Based on anecdotal experience I believe very little software has achieved Six Sigma level of quality.

    Is it possible to correlate product quality with CMM level, such as this:

    CMM Maturity Best Possible Quality
    1 One or two Sigma
    2 Three sigma
    3 Four sigma
    4 Five Sigma
    5 Six Sigma

    Re: Six Sigma and CMM ?

    These days, I'm in a training programm which include Six Sigma, and I've discovered some new things:

    - Six Sigma is a quality standard and an aproach for quality.
    - Six Sigma "methods" are used by some companies which doesn't completely adhere to Six Sigma. So you, could use Six Sigma "methods" without using the standards.
    - Six Sigma could be use in the same time with CMM. These two are not mutually exclusive.

    If you use CMM for your process, and Six Sigma as a measure of product quality, a company could have a CMM level of 5, but the quality of the products could be at the level of 3 Sigma. Of course, the opposite situation could be true.
