    During the process assessment it is determined if the given methods and project standards are adhered to when certain activities are realized. The assessment may be for SD, QA, CM and PM activities.


    Process assessments should be defined particularly for activities CM3 - Change Management (Configuration Control) or CM4.4 - Data Backup since deviations from the defined procedure might have very critical consequences.

    In case process assessments are defined for the QA activities themselves, then it is important that the implementor of the QA activities and the assessors are sufficiently independent of each other; this can be achieved by allocating appropriate roles.
