Configuration Management Training, managing Equipment, Systems, Ships,  Submarines, Carriers, and Shore Activities

Configuration Management Training course covers all the configuration Equipment, Systems, Ships,  Submarines, Carriers, and Shore Activities.

Configuration Management (CM) is the application and best program practices to establish and maintain consistency of a product’s, system’s or system of systems (SoS)’s attributes with its requirements and evolving technical baseline over its life.

Configuration management is a management discipline provides visibility into and to control changes to performance and functional and physical characteristics applied over the product’s life cycle. Improper configuration management could result in incorrect, ineffective, and/or unsafe products being released.  Configuration management is a key systems engineering practice that provides visibility of a true representation of a product and attains the product’s integrity by controlling the changes made to the baseline configuration and tracking such changes. Configuration management ensures that the configuration of a product is known and reflected in product information, that any product change is beneficial and is effected without adverse consequences, and that changes are managed.

CM reduces technical risks by ensuring correct product configurations, distinguishes among product versions, ensures consistency between the product and information about the product, and avoids the embarrassment cost of stakeholder dissatisfaction and complaint.

CM involves interaction among government and contractor program functions such as systems engineering, hardware/software engineering, specialty engineering, logistics, contracting, and production in an Integrated Product Team (IPT) environment.

The Program Manager (PM) is responsible Configuration Management (CM) on their project or program. The program manager should use configuration management to establish and mature the technical, functional and Acquisition Program Baseline throughout the acquisition and system life cycle. The Program Manager shall also assume the control of the initial product baseline at the Critical Design Review (CDR) for all Class 1 configuration changes.

Learning Objectives

This course provides guidance to DoD managers assigned the responsibility for configuration management on how to ensure the application of product and data configuration management to defense materiel items, in each phase of their life cycle.

Acquisition practices, including the manner in which CM is specified in a contract, and the
process of monitoring contractor application are evolving as the result of two interacting transitions.
