Overview of Level 5

We will now look at the Specific Goals and Specific Practices in Maturity Level 5.

The three Process Areas in level 4 are in blue. There is a green box for each of the Process Areas that contain the Specific Goals which must be met to achieve the Process Area.

The achievement of all previous test process improvement goals at Levels 1 through 4 of TMMi has created an organisational infrastructure for testing that supports a completely defined and measured process.

At TMMi Maturity Level 5, an organisation is capable of continually improving its processes based on a quantitative understanding of statistically controlled processes.

Improving test process performance is carried out through an incremental and innovative process with associated technological improvements.

The testing methods and techniques are optimised and there is a continuous focus on fine-tuning and process improvement.
