An American software engineer, key thinker in the discipline of software engineering, and often called the "Father of Software Quality", he headed the IBM team that introduced the first software license. He founded the Software Process Program at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University, which was aimed at understanding and managing the software engineering process and resulted in the development of the Capability Maturity Model. This inspired the later development of the Personal Software Process (PSP) and the Team Software Process (TSP), the goal of which was to "improve quality and productivity in software development and to ease what was called the 'Software Crisis'."
