15Reality ?The Amazon's first captain, Robert McLellan, son of one of the owners, contracted pneumonia nine days after taking command, and he died at the very beginning of her maiden voyage. He was the first of three captains to die aboard her.John Nutting Parker, the next captain of the Amazon, struck a fishing boat, and had to steer her back to the shipyard for repairs. At the shipyard, a fire broke out in the middle of the ship.Her first trans-Atlantic crossing was also disastrous for her next captain, after she collided with another vessel in the English Channel near Dover, England. This resulted in the dismissal of the new captain.The most plausible explanations for her being abandoned are all based on the barrels of alcohol. Captain Briggs had never hauled such a dangerous cargo before, and did not trust it. The idea was put forth by the ship's major shareholder, James Winchester, and is the most widely accepted explanation for the crew's disappearance.Nine of the 1,701 barrels of alcohol in the hold were later discovered to be empty. They had been made of red oak, not white oak as the others. Red oak is more porous and thus more likely to emit vapor. This would have caused a buildup of vapor in the hold. Poorly-secured barrels could rub against each other, and friction between the barrels' steel bands could cause sparks. The possibility of explosion, however remote, might have panicked the crew into abandoning ship.Historian Conrad Byers believed Captain Briggs ordered the hold to be opened, resulting in a violent rush of fumes and steam. Believing his ship was about to explode, he ordered everyone into the lifeboat, failing to properly secure it to the ship with a strong towline. The wind picked up and blew the ship away from them. Those in the lifeboat would either have drowned or died of hunger, thirst or exposure.

17CMMI - delete Level Measurement 5 ‐ Optimized Entire organization is focused on continuous improvement.Organization has the means (metrics) to identify weaknesses andstrengthen the process proactively.4 ‐ Managed Metrics are established for products and processes to identifywhich variations are significant and which are “noise”. Risks ofintroducing new products, processes etc. are known and carefullymanaged and can be used to predict trends in process and productquality within the Quantitative bounds of these limits.3 ‐ Defined Level Standard processes are based on integrated into the developmentprocess as a coherent whole and help the team perform moreeffectively. Includes training, and tailoring the project’s approach toaddress the unique features of the project. Transparency to costs,schedule, requirements and quality.2 - Repeatable Level Policies for managing a development project and procedure to14‐ implement those policies are established and are institutionalized.Basic project and management controls have been installed(requirements, costs, schedules, problems & changes)1 ‐ Initial Level(Ad hoc, Immature)‐Does not provide stable environment for developing newproducts.‐ Performance depends on the “heroics” of individuals or teamsand varies with their innate skills, knowledge and motivations.(CMM , Kenneth Crow DRM Associates C2000
