About this Course: This course is no longer being taught by CMPIC. Please see CMPIC Course 12.

This 2-day class will address the role of configuration management as it relates to industry Quality Assurance Standards and government requirements. It will be based on industry configuration management requirements found in ISO 10007 as well as ANSI/EIA-649.

Configuration Management (CM) is an integral part of all Quality Assurance Standards. Quality System standards such as TL9000 (Telecommunications) and AS9100 (Aerospace) specifically require CM whereas other Quality System standards, such as ISO 9001 and TS 16949 (Automotive), reference CM as a means of assuring identification and traceability; all of which reference ISO 10007, Quality Management Systems - Guidelines for Configuration Management. Even without specifically using the term “configuration management”, the US Code of Federal Regulations’ quality sections, found in Title 10 Energy, Title 14 Aeronautics and Space, Title 19 Labor, Title 32 National Defense, and Title 21 Food and Drugs, require implementing all of the elements of CM.

This course will explain the various elements of CM such as planning, identification, change management, status accounting, verification, and audit. Students will walk away with a solid understanding of configuration management and the role of CM within their organization’s quality management system.


There are no prerequisites for this course.
