Rationale
Content
This is a defense unique companion to the non-government standard, EIA-649 “Configuration Management Standard," that is generated, managed, and controlled by the non-government standard body with defense membership, to provide requirements specific for defense contracts. Defense programs often include requirements for configuration management beyond those outlined in EIA-649. Additional guidance is needed for configuration management requirements for defense applications and for placing these requirements on contracts. This standard is for placing tailored Configuration Management requirements on defense contracts. Tailoring CM requirements is essential for program success and mitigating impacts to cost, schedule, and resources. Therefore, it is not recommended to put this entire standard on contract.
