1. 1, SCAMPI is a combination of appraisal techniques from the CBA-IPI and EIA 731-2 appraisal methods. These methods were created at different times, to support appraisals of two distinct disciplines (software and systems engineering), based on models with divergent architectural structures (staged and continuous). Nonetheless in many respects, these two appraisal methods are very similar. They both address three types of source informationartifacts, instruments, and interviewsbut in varying ways and with differing emphasis.

Process users are typically resistant to process change, particularly if they do not perceive added value. Integration of processes to be compliant with multiple frameworks can be viewed as change for change's sake. The time lost to training and gaining experience with new tools and processes creates resistance among many process users. There are several ways to mitigate this risk. A recognized approach is having process users who have influence within their organizations participate in the needed process definition and redefinition.

From Discovery to Verification The integrated CMMI models combine the materials from three legacy models; the disciplines addressed include software, systems engineering, and integrated process and product development. Therefore, it is no surprise that the size of the integrated model, an amalgam that covers all three areas, is larger than any one of the single-discipline legacy models. With a larger model, there is more to review during an appraisal. One of the primary objectives of the SCAMPI development was to maintain the quality of the legacy appraisals but at the same time keep the cost of a CMMI SCAMPI appraisal lower than the combined cost of multiple 42 Part II: SCAMPI Appraisals Part II: SCAMPI Appraisals 43 single-discipline appraisals.
