Trillium is the result of a partnering project between Bell Canada, Northern Telecom and Bell-Northern Research.
The goal of the Model is to provide a means to initiate and guide a continuous improvement program. The Model is
used in a variety of ways:
The Trillium model is based on the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute's (SEI) Capability Maturity Model (CMM) v1.1.
- to benchmark an organization's product development and support process capability against best practices in the industry,
- in self-assessment mode, to help identify opportunities for improvement within a product development organization, and
- in pre-contractual negotiations, to assist in selecting a supplier.
The following table provides a high level indication of the alignment of
Trillium levels with key industry indicators and the standards
which it encapsulates.
