Configuration Management Definitions for Digital Computer Programs

2014-10-01
CURRENT
CMB4_1A
This Bulletin is intended for use as a guide and defines the terms and definitions to be used during the development, documentation, verification, and delivery cycles of new and modified computer software. It lists and defines the most common terms currently used in the world of computer software configuration management. There has been no attempt to compete with some of the more formal documents in use within the software programming community.

Configuration Change Control for Digital Computer Programs

2020-06-08
WIP
CMB4_4A

The very nature of configuration management is the control of the configuration. This was the initial premise under which the control discipline was established and, later, formalized in DoD-D-5010.19 (1969) into a statement which defined control as: "The systematic evaluation, coordination, approval or disapproval, and implementation of all approved changes in the configuration of a configuration item after formal establishment of its configuration identification."

What this definition does not impart is the scope and magnitude of the configuration change control task, or the rationale for configuration changes. The purpose of this bulletin is to describe the software change control process in the context of a structured programming environment.

Configuration Management Requirements for Subcontractors/Vendors

CMB5A
The role of CM, within any one company's organization, on the development and production of a product has been established by internal company needs or imposed by customer dictum. (As used hereinafter, in order to reduce any confusion, computer programs, components, software, hardware, firmware, etc., are included in the designation "PRODUCT".) The primary focus of this Bulletin is directed toward the Buyer and Supplier personnel who will be managing hardware products in the production phase and software products in the full-scale development phase. The trend in DoD is toward expanded use of standardized components and subassemblies, using competitive reprocurement. The DoD needs to know the full span of CM requirements which should be included in the production contract and the management tasks that will have to be accomplished.

Education in Configuration and Data Management

CMB6_10A
In today's high technology environment, a variety of management tools have been developed within government and industry to govern the fast changing technical environment. There is a particular demand in industry for formal education in the disciplines of Configuration Management and Data Management (CM/DM). Briefly, Configuration Management is the disciplined continuous identification of design and control of changes. Data Management ensures that the data (technical, financial, administrative) delivered as part of a contract comply with contractual requirements and are adequate to satisfy the intended use or functions (e.g. logistics, maintenance, reprocurement).

CMB6_2A
This training program is designed to introduce and examine the principles of Configuration and Data Management. The program will present an overview of the origin and evoluation of Configuration/Data Management and define the elements of identification, control, status accounting, audits and data requirements, tracking and monitoring. This program will also explore the relationship between Configuration/Data Management and other organizations/elements and their involvement in the system life cycle.

Configuration Control

CMB6_4A

The objective of this course is to provide an in-depth understanding of the concepts and principles involved in the configuration control process. It is intended for an individual who has completed a basic introductory course in CM and who requires the deeper knowledge of a CM practitioner rather than a superficial overview.

The overall objective of configuration management is to guarantee the buyer that a given product is what it was intended to be, functionally and physically as defined by contractual drawings and specifications, and to identify the configuration to the lowest level of assembly required to assure repeatable performance, quality, maintainability and reliability in all units of the same product.

Reviews and Configuration Audits

CMB6_6A

The objective of this course is to provide an in-depth understanding of the concepts and principles involved in the Review and Configuration Audit process. It is intended for an individual who has completed a basic introductory course in CM and who requires the deeper knowledge of a CM practitioner rather than a superficial overview.

Technical review and product audit practices described in this text are based on Government requirements. This emphasis is made because the Department of Defense DOD) represents a major customer of goods and services and because the referenced specifications and standards reflect good business practices refined over many years of usage. For commercial companies producing items for other companies or the public, many of these reviews and audits may not be formally implemented. They are, however, an integral and essential part of the systems engineering process.

This Interface Control Plan establishes a program for interface control among the major segments/equipments of a DoD program. This could be an airborne weapon system, Medium Launch Vehicle System, Space Launch Complex System, etc. The program is based on formal agreements between participating organizations, and includes (1) documentation to establish, define and control interface requirements and to detail interface design definition between system segments, (2) interface management under the purview of the Interface Management Boards (IMB) and (3) interface control, through Interface Control Working Groups (ICWGs). The plan establishes the IMB and ICWG policy and procedures. Furthermore, it sets forth the Government Agencies Program Offices, associate contractors and participating Government Agency responsibilities in support of the Interface Control Program and the conduct of interface management/control through the IMBs, and ICWGs.
