About this Course

The course content will address the full standard including associated DID’s and DD Forms. Each student will receive a licensed PDF copy of the latest version of "SAE EIA-649-1 Configuration Management Requirements for Defense Contracts" after successful completion of this course.

SAE EIA-649-1, Configuration Management Requirements for Defense Contracts, defines requirements for a Defense enterprise implementation of EIA-649 in an acquirer/supplier contractual relationship. These requirements are intended to be tailored by the acquirer and cited in contracts, or similar agreements, with Suppliers to establish requirements for Configuration Management tasks consistent with ANSI/EIA-649 and each of its functions and principles. This standard applies to commercial as well as government organizations. It offers valuable advice on requirements for achieving successful CM implementations. Its authors come from various commercial and government backgrounds and are experts in the field of CM.

This course will explain the logic and meaning behind the various EIA-649-1 principles, and offer options for implementation approaches and how best to tailor and apply the standard in various environments.


About SAE EIA-649-1

SAE EIA 649-1 is a defense unique standard to the non-government standard, “SAE EIA-649B Configuration Management Standard,” that provides requirements specific for Defense contracts. This standard is for placing Acquirer tailored Configuration Management (CM) requirements on Defense contracts and applies to both hardware and software.

Consistent with SAE EIA-649B, the SAE EIA-649-1 makes use of the acquirer and supplier roles to define requirements against the five CM functions: Configuration Planning and Management, Configuration Identification, Configuration Change Management, Configuration Status Accounting, Configuration Verification and Audit, as well as their underlying principles. The SAE EIA-649-1 is intended to help the government and/or industry acting in the acquirer role place CM requirements on DoD contracts by supplying the “shall” statements for implementing the EIA-649B CM functions and principles.



There are no prerequisites for this course.
