Configuration Management Standards

Organizations should establish configuration management standards. Configuration management involves controlling project component changes in order to minimize project disruptions and ensure original objectives are addressed. Configuration management standards should require the identification of baseline configurations (original versions) of hardware, software, services, documentation, and project management plans. Standards should also be in place to ensure all changes to baseline versions are evaluated, approved, documented, and disseminated. Refer to the "Maintenance" section for additional configuration management details.
