The present document:
- is based on internationally-recognized concepts;
- proposes organisational principles and implementation processes for configuration management from both viewpoints: "programme" and "company", with emphasis on the "programme" viewpoint.
The required procedures for implementation and necessary tailoring have to be prescribed for each programme.
This document encompasses some aspects of the relationship between configuration management and contract management, but does not address contract management procedures.
Intended for use in complex programmes (aerospace, defence, etc.), this document is an extension of standard ISO 10007 Quality management systems - Guidelines for configuration management.
This document is coherent with EN 9200 Programme management - Guidelines for project management specifications.
The described principles concern all the stakeholders in the programme (authorities, manufacturers, skills, etc.) from the feasibility phase to disposal. These principles can be applied or tailored to any products (material or software).
