Configuration identification of a baseline is accomplished by creating and formally releasing documentation that describes the baseline to be used, and how changes to that baseline will be accounted for, controlled, and released. Such documentation includes requirements (product, process, and material), specifications, drawings, and code listings. Configuration documentation is not formally considered part of the technical baseline until approved by control gate action of the buyer. An important part of configuration identification is the physical identification of individual configuration items using part numbers, serial numbers, lot numbers, version numbers, document control numbers, etc. • • • • • • • • • • What is the design impact?

Configuration control is the process of controlling changes to any approved baseline by formal action of a configuration control board (CCB). This area of configuration management is usually the most visible to the system engineer. In large programs/projects, configuration control is accomplished by a hierarchy of configuration control boards, reflecting multiple levels of control. Each configuration control board has its own areas of control and responsibilities, which are...
