Configuration Management System

We all know that changes are likely to happen to the project scope. How these change requests are submitted, reviewed, their status tracked, and approved are part of the configuration management system. This system, established early in the project, defines how stakeholders are allowed to submit change requests, the conditions for approving a change request, and how approved change requests are validated in the project scope. Configuration management also is in charge of several activities:

• Documenting the functional and physical characteristics of a product or component

• Controlling changes to any of a product's physical characteristics

• Recording changes to the product's physical characteristics and the conditions surrounding the changes

• Contributing and supporting the audit of a product or component for quality
