The CM process defines the sequence of activities that must be performed in support of the CM mechanisms. As with most activities in project management, the first stage in the CM process at Infosys is planning—identifying those items that need to be under CM (known as configuration items), locations to store them, procedures for change control, and so on. The project manager or the configuration controller (CC) of the project prepares this plan. Then the process must be executed, perhaps by deploying a tool (the use of which also must be planned). Finally, because any CM plan requires discipline on the part of the project personnel in terms of maintaining versions, storing items in proper locations, and making changes properly, monitoring the status of the configuration items and performing CM audits are therefore other activities in the CM process. This chapter discusses these three activities of the CM process at Infosys.
