CM Structures, CMPIC Certification Course 2

Configuration Management Identification

CMPIC Course 2



The Configuration Management Identification (formerly titled "CM Structures") course provides the details associated with that element of CM known as Identification. It begins with various industry standard views of what “identification” is and continues with detailed views of product structuring in various environments. The course also addresses baselines, identifiers, re-identification and more. Additionally, the elements of CM known as Status Accounting and Verification and Audit will be discussed in this course. We review various industry standard definitions of these elements as well. In all  cases we will address best practices for implementing all the above various elements of CM.  The role of automated tools in helping manage various aspects of these elements of CM will also be discussed.
