To develop large-scale complex systems, many organizations have attempted to improve the processes specified in systems engineering (SE) and project management (PM) by adopting CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration). On the other hand, most domestic organizations that already acquired CMMI level 3 have focused on SE&PM practices while providing less investment in building up the environment for institutionalizing those processes. In such organizations, the process maturity without advancing to institutionalization can be neither enhanced nor maintained. To resolve the problem, the following remedies can be suggested. A standard process should first be defined to meet the business mission of the organization and to carry out the process successfully, the people should be properly trained and the appropriate tools be provided. In this study, a maturity model to accomplish institutionalization was examined based on the aforementioned P-P-T (Process-People-Tool) concept. The model proposed would be useful in developing strategies and plans for process institutionalization when the organizations are in the preparation stages for a CMMI certificate or have already acquired one.
