CM Trends 2023 Workshop: FCA/PCA In-Depth Process Workshop
This 2.5 day hands-on workshop will dive into the requirements and objectives of the Functional Configuration Audit (FCA) and Physical Configuration Audit (PCA) for both government and commercial environments. Audits are a summation of the configuration verification activity and are relevant to commercial and government industries. Explore a unique product audit scenario that allows attendees to participate in group audit activities led by multiple CMPIC instructors. Learn what these audits are about from both the acquirer perspective and the supplier perspective. Using International Standards such as SAE EIA-649C and IEEE Std 15288.2, attendees will evaluate the process from start to finish. Take homes include your workshop book containing important resources to plan, conduct and document a Configuration Audit (e.g.PCA/FCA), a Certificate of Completion and 2.0 CEUs (Continuing Education Units).
