BANGALORE: The founder of Software Process Program, Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University Watts S. Humphrey today visited the Texas Instruments (India) facility.

Humphrey highlighted the importance of India's focus on quality and process in software development and the high caliber of software work undertaken here in the country.

During his visit to the Texas Instruments’ Humphrey spoke extensively on two emerging trends, Personal Software Process (PSP) and Team Software Process (TSP). He highlighted how applying CMM principles to software has matured the Software engineering discipline. His concepts have made software engineering teams work in collaborative manner across geographies and achieve consistent, uniform and predictable results.

Humphrey devised the CMM model during his time at the Software Engineering Institute, or SEI, where he has worked since 1987. The Capability Maturity Model, or CMM, created a structured way for people who design software to do so in a predictable fashion. It has helped software developers deliver quality products efficiently and on time. Mr. Humphrey's model can also be applied to the world outside of the software industry, to map out the progress of a large team of people working on a complex project.
