MSF CMMI process template 5

Oct 17, 2011 at 4:46 PM

I really appreciate the resources that Rangers team has put and thanks for all this hard work and nice and easy reading tutorials.

I need went through the whole exercises and should admit that I learned a lot about the agile process. However, did the Rangers team has similar documentation/resources for the MSF CMMI process 5 ? If not, are you aware on any resources or books that can educate a new comer for the CMMI process template.


Thanks in advance

I'm also looking for CMMi guidance resources. Any thoughts?

Hi TFSRocks.

The VS ALM Ranger Requirements Engineering Guidance tried to address requirements practices at a methodology agnostic point.  There are many levels of requirements that are derived and traced through the course of developing a project, but there are 3 main levels that I think can address most needs;  Business Level, derived as a result of business analysis, then System Level, which is usually addressed as a result of functional and technical analysis of the business requirements, and then Implementation Level, which are derived as a result of project planning (tasks), Analysis and Design (design components), and Test Planning (test cases).

If you think in those three concepts, you should be able to apply the hands on labs in either of the out-of-box process templates; MSF Agile, MSF CMMI, and VS Scrum.

I hope that helps.  If not, the process guidance is available in a project created by each process template.

Here is a link in msdn where links to each of the process templates guidance is located:

Also, for more process improvement related knowledge on the CMMI, here is a link to the SEI's site on the topic:

I hope this helps.
