Fundamentals of Configuration Management
Call for Tuition Information
This one-day workshop presents the fundamentals of configuration management: where configuration information comes from, how to develop a management view of a system, how to address the key issues in configuration control and how to tailor CM processes to a development program. It focuses on the practical and includes several exercises during the day to practice the techniques taught in the class.
Configuration Management has been a crucial aspect of managing system viability since the birth of the systems engineering and systems management professions in the mid-20th century, when it played a crucial role in the success of the Apollo program. This course provides both lecture and practical work on the use of configurations to maintain the integrity and viability of a system.
