Product quality, process performance, and service quality are understood in statistical terms and are managed throughout the life of the processes. Institutionalization occurs via: Satisfying the factors for institutionalization at Levels 2 and 3 Establishing and maintaining quantitative objectives for product quality, service quality, and process performance Establishing and maintaining a statistically stable and predictable process performance Establishing and maintaining a statistical understanding to determine whether the process is capable of achieving these goals Maturity Level 4 focuses on using metrics to make decisions and to truly measure whether progress is occurring and the product is improving.
The Generic Practices for Capability Level 2 in the continuous representation also include statements for the same things — planning, managing changes, ensuring quality, and tracking progress. Generic Practices are used to determine whether generic goals have been satisfied. Generic goals must be satisfied to achieve a level — either a Capability Level or a Maturity Level. What this means is that, because an organization is expected to implement the Generic Practices, an organization using the continuous representation and selecting separate process areas to focus on, must in reality also satisfy the basic concepts of Maturity Level 2 in the staged representation.
Capability Level 0: Incomplete An incomplete process does not implement all of the Capability Level 1 specific and generic practices. This is tantamount to Maturity Level 1 in the staged representation. Capability Level 1: Performed A Capability Level 1 process is a process that is expected to perform all of the Capability Level 1 specific and generic practices. Performance may not be stable and may not meet specific objectives such as quality, cost, and schedule, but useful work can be done. This is only a start, or baby-step, in process improvement.
