SAMSUNG SDS, Asia's first official PSP

In the midst of MOIC's (Ministry of Information and Communication) active efforts to train professionals that can improve software processes, official instructors that can systematically support the attainment of the highest S/W quality management level 'CMM 5' have been produced.


SEI (Software Engineering Institute), an auxiliary research center under Carnegie-Mellon University, has been providing guidance for international standards concerning software quality management capabilities. SEI has established a process for personal S/W operation and has officially granted the PSP (Personal Software Process) certification for distributing these processes to three Samsung SDS employees for the first time in Asia. Samsung SDS said that through these people employees within the company would receive all types of training provided by SEI.


In the early 1990s, the Department of Defense of the United States requested the Software Engineering Institute(SEI) of Carnegie-Mellon University for the development of a solution to achieve the highest 'Level 5' of CMM(Capability Maturity Model), which is a method for software quality management evaluation. PSP (Personal S/W Development Process) is a set of systematically arranged processes that enable this solution to be applicable by individual. PSP fundamentally improves the operation process of S/W manpower by dividing the level into 4 steps, which are ▶ PSP Level 0 - Personal data collection ▶ PSP Level 1 - Task and schedule planning, ▶ PSP Level 2 - High quality module production ▶ PSP Level 3 - High quality final product production.


The Samsung SDS employees who received the Asia's first official PSP certification from the SEI are three in total, two manager level and one assistant manager level employee. They will use all the training materials provided by the SEI to give lectures within the Samsung organization on PSP for Engineers, Managing PSP-trained Engineers, PSP Executive Seminar, and Introduction to Personal Process. Also, along with the PSP lecturer community, which consists of two hundred some PSP lecturers throughout the world, they will give joint training sessions and build an international alliance for exchange.


Using as a basis this occasion of obtaining the PSP certification, Samsung SDS is planning on establishing a master plan to improve S/W quality management capabilities and enable S/W development personnel to produce products of high quality, and thus, present a concrete quality improvement method for each module.
In addition, Samsung SDS is planning on conducting a scrupulous analysis on the characteristics of S/W related organizations and individuals, and develop a training course in accordance by the first half of next year, and make the training a required course. Samsung SDS is aiming on concentrating their corporate efforts onto the strengthening of future SI (System Integration) project quality management.


Joon-sung Park, Managing Director of Advanced Technology Software Engineering Center, Samsung SDS, commented, "While CMM defines what must be done to produce high-quality software, PSP presents the individual solution for achieving 'CMM Level 5'", and added, "The obtainment of the PSP certification is the first in Asia, and has the significance of presenting the direction for Samsung SDS to achieve S/W quality management."
