Marshall Space Flight Center Software Engineering Improvement Plan

The purpose of this plan is to define the implementation of MSFC software development process improvement effort and to document MSFC support of NASA Software Engineering Initiative Implementation Plan. In compliance with the NASA Engineering and Program/Project Management Policy NPD 7120.4, a major benefit that MSFC derives from the implementation of this initiative is improved software development and acquisition processes enabling MSFC to develop and acquire higher quality software. A major focus of this effort is to improve the processes and practices in use at MSFC by continually measuring the level of process maturity against the Software Engineering Institute’s Capability Maturity Model-Integration (CMMI) for development. In accordance with MWI 7120.4, this document adheres to the mandatory template for a MSFC Technical Standard document. Sections 1 through 3 of the center plan required content as defined in Appendix C of the NASA Software Engineering Initiative Implementation Plan are addressed in Section 1.1, Section 1.2, and Section 1.3 of this plan, respectively.
