The process rating is then presented as a preliminary finding to the sponsor and preferably also to the persons assessed to ensure that they agree that the assessment is accurate. The process assessment model PAM is the detailed model used for an actual assessment. January Learn how and when to remove this template message. List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards.
The initial International Standard was recreated in 5 parts. With new parts being published, the process categories will expand, particularly for IT service process categories and enterprise process categories.
The process assessment model in part 6 is based on the process reference model for systems: The rating is based upon evidence collected against the practice indicators, which demonstrate fulfillment of the process attribute. SPICE is still used for the user group of the standard, 15504- the title for the annual conference. The issued standard now specifies the measurement framework and can use different process reference models. This section’s factual accuracy may be compromised due to out-of-date information.
In a few cases, there may be feedback requiring further assessment before a final process rating is made. Target process profiles are particularly important in contexts where the organization for example, a government department is required to accept the cheapest qualifying vendor.

The simplest comprise paper-based tools. Please update this article to reflect recent 15504- or newly available information.
Following this improvement programme is not mandatory and several alternative improvement programmes exist. ISO standards by standard number. The actual method is not specified in the standard although the standard places requirements on the method, method developers and lso using the method. Assessors write down the assessment results and notes supporting the assessment judgment.
Computer programming Requirements engineering Software deployment Software design Software maintenance Software testing Systems analysis Formal methods. The list of processes covered grew to cover six business areas: In general, they are laid out to incorporate the assessment model indicators, including the base practice indicators and generic practice indicators.
Computer science Computer engineering Project management Risk management Systems engineering. An organization considering outsourcing software development needs to have a good understanding of the capability of potential suppliers to deliver.
Views Read Edit View history. This was expanded to cover all related processes in a software business, for example project managementconfiguration managementquality assuranceand so isk.
The capability of processes is measured using process attributes. In addition there are methods available that adapt its use to various contexts. An assessor can collect data on a process by various means, including interviews with persons performing the process, 1554-5 documents and quality records, and collecting statistical process data.
This also enables suppliers to identify gaps between their current capability and the level required by a potential customer, and to undertake improvement to achieve the contract requirements i.
The organization can determine a target capability for suppliers, based on the organization’s needs, and then assess suppliers against a set of target process profiles that specify this target capability.
There are five general and industry models in use. This was proposed from Japan when the TRs were published at Retrieved from ” https: One of the requirements is to use a conformant assessment method for the assessment process. The assessor validates this data to ensure it is accurate and completely 155504-5 the assessment scope. Each process attribute consists of one or more generic practices, which are further elaborated into practice indicators to aid assessment performance.
The reference model defines a process dimension and a capability dimension. This article may require cleanup to meet Wikipedia’s quality standards. The international standard defines nine process attributes:.
The assessor assesses this data using his expert judgment against a process’s base practices and the capability dimension’s generic practices in the process rating step. This is an elaboration of the process reference model PRM provided by the process lifecycle standards.
Process rating requires some exercising of expert judgment on the part of the assessor and this is the reason that there are requirements on assessor qualifications and competency.
The 7th part is currently in an advanced Final Draft Standard form  and work has started on part 8.

Safety extension van Loon, H. There exist several assessment tools. This page was last edited on 12 Juneat Work on extending the value of capability determination includes a method called Practical Process Profiles – which uses risk as the determining factor in setting target process profiles. The specific problem is:
