APPENDIX C

Planning Procedure

Purpose

The objective of the CM planning procedure is to develop required guidance for the deployment of the configuration management procedures. This procedure involves the identification of the project configuration controller, developing the CM plan and ensuring its integration with the overall project plan.

Term

Definition

1

Configuration Item (CI)

An aggregation of work products that is designated for configuration management and treated as a single entity in the configuration management process.

2

Baseline

The configuration information formally designated at a specific time during a product's or product component's life. Configuration baselines, plus approved changes from those baselines, constitute the current configuration information. Usually, the baseline term describes how different CIs are related to each other and how this CIs are related to project’s milestones.

3

Configuration Management Audit

An audit conducted to verify that a configuration item conforms to a specified standard or requirement.
