Certified Professional in Configuration Management - Glossary of terms used in Configuration Management

Abstract
Much time and effort is wasted both within and between industry, commerce, government and professional and academic institutions when ambiguities arise as a result of the inability to differentiate adequately between such terms as 'change control' and 'change management'; 'configuration management policy' and 'configuration management plan' and similar terms which form an interface between various sectors of society. Moreover, the professional or technical use of these terms is often at variance with different meanings attributed to them.

Much time and effort is wasted both within and between industry, commerce, government and professional and academic institutions when ambiguities arise as a result of the inability to differentiate adequately between such terms as 'change control' and 'change management'; 'configuration management policy' and 'configuration management plan' and similar terms which form an interface between various sectors of society. Moreover, the professional or technical use of these terms is often at variance with different meanings attributed to them.



This document presents terms and definitions designed to aid communication in configuration management and related disciplines.



The glossary has been arranged in a single section of definitions ordered alphabetically. Some terms are preferred to other synonymous ones, in which case, the definition of the preferred term appears, with the synonymous ones referring to that. For example 'change control' refers to 'configuration control'. For synonyms, the "See" indicator is used.



"See also" cross-references are also used. They assist the user to quickly navigate to the right index term. "See also" cross-references are constructed for relationships such as broader term to a narrower term, and overlapping meaning between two terms. (Less)
