What does PSP mean?

Personal software process
The Personal Software Process is a structured software development process that is intended to help software engineers understand and improve their performance, by using a "disciplined, data-driven procedure". The PSP was created by Watts Humphrey to apply the underlying principles of the Software Engineering Institute’s Capability Maturity Model to the software development practices of a single developer. It claims to give software engineers the process skills necessary to work on a Team Software Process team. "Personal Software Process" and "PSP" are registered service marks of the Carnegie Mellon University. PSP has been likened to applying Six Sigma toward Software Development.
