Configuration Management Standard
- Aerospace Standard
The principles of this standard provide direction for developing enterprise or functional CM plans focused on identifying, defining, authorizing, and managing CM activities.
These plans identify the participants involved in activities, their responsibilities, their authority, and how accountability is administered to serve enterprise/activity objectives.
The Enterprise uses CM’s integrity-based traceability and management capabilities as a foundation to support the “best practice” initiatives of data/information management, quality assurance, program/project management, systems engineering and life cycle logistics, by providing principle-guided functions to achieve a more efficient, effective and lean enterprise.
Acquirer requires a CM plan consistent with the principles of this standard from the supplier.
Acquirer uses this standard to develop a checklist with which to evaluate supplier CM plans.
Acquirer reviews and approves the supplier CM plan and makes it a requirement of the contract. This method requires both parties to the acquisition to understand both the concepts and the tailoring.
Acquirer uses the principles of this standard as the basis for developing either or both an enterprise CM requirements document or a specific project CM requirements document to impose on suppliers. The requirements documents may state this standard’s principles as requirements and reference this standard’s paragraphs. Compliance with the contractual requirements constitutes conformance with this standard.
