SEMA is a technical initiative at the SEI that provides guidance and expertise in the field of software measurement and analysis. SEMA techniques have helped numerous Department of Defense (DoD) and commercial organizations improve software processes, better predict costs and schedules, and track organizational performance. SEMA provides development and analysis guidance, information resources, and practices that assist the DoD and industry suppliers of software-intensive systems in quantitatively managing and improving their projects, processes, and organizations.
Related Products and ServicesSEMA members are leading the way in applying Statistical Process Control, Six Sigma, Goal-Driven Software Measurement, and other useful measurement techniques. SEMA also provides support for the measurement and analysis process areas of the CMMI® models.
To accomplish this mission, SEMA produces technical reports, tutorials, courses, and online resources related to software measurement. SEMA also collaborates with organizations that wish to establish or improve their measurement activities, investigate the use of innovative analytical techniques on their data, and study the effects of process and technology innovations on software engineering performance.
SEMA courses and workshops include:
