Configuration Management System

A subsystem of the overall project management system. It is a collection of formal documented procedures used to apply technical and administrative direction and surveillance to: identify and document the functional and physical characteristics; record and report each change and its implementation status; and support the audit of the products, results or components to verify conformance to requirements. It includes the documentation, tracking systems and defined approved levels necessary for authorizing and controlling changes. In most application areas, the configuration management system includes the change control system.
