      To promote software process improvement (SPI) activities throughout Toshiba Group, we organized a Corporate Software Engineering Process Group in April 2000. For over 10 years, we have been constructing Toshiba's SPI framework on the basis of the SPI framework that we proposed and promoting process improvement activities using it. As a result, maturity levels were improved in many development departments, and the applicability of the SPI framework has been confirmed.
