The SEI stands for?

The acronym SEI in software engineering contexts is usually employed to refer to the "Software Engineering Institute."  This organisation was created at Carnegie Mellon University (http://www.sei.cmu.edu).  I believe it was created under funding from the U.S. Department of Defense.  Amongst its celebrated contributions is the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) of the early 1990s (http://www.sei.cmu.edu/cmm).

An article concerning the creation of the SEI may be located here:

In "System Development and Ada", (Proceedings of CRAI Workshop on Software Factories and Ada, Capri, Italy, May 26-30, 1986), A.Nico Haberman and Ugo Montanari (eds), no. 275 in Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Springer-Verlag, 1986, pp.233-248.
