Trying to write a paper where I have to compare process improvement models to implement for a hypothetical avionics software development company.
From researching, it seems that CMMI and SPICE are pretty similar and both derived from CMM. The problem I'm having is I'm finding it difficult to distinguish when you would recommend one over another.
So far I've managed to find out that:
- SPICE is slightly cheaper than CMMI
- SPICE is recognised more in Europe
- CMMI is recognised more in US and required for US military contracts
- CMMI takes longer
Is there anything better that can distinguish between these?
