SEI ARC-Class B appraisals allow you to determine process gaps in preparation for a formal SCAMPI Class A appraisal.

ISD recommends the ARC-Class B appraisal for organizations that need in-depth determination of process gaps and weaknesses without the establishment of a formal maturity or capability level rating. An ARC-Class B appraisal is also used to measure improvement progress, providing more in-depth verification-and-discovery methods than ARC-Class C appraisals provide. They are therefore most appropriate for organizations continuing their of CMMI-based process improvement journey.

ISD will conduct your ARC-Class B appraisal using our own Comprehensive Appraisal Method (CAM). Our approach results in a scaled down, lower-impact version of the same basic steps outlined in the full SCAMPI Class A appraisal method:

Guided by an ISD Team Leader, your appraisal team will apply CMMI industry best practices to your organization to produce valuable, actionable items for process improvement.
