Configuration Management: Core Concepts for Building Reliable Software

  • Online

This course developed by IEEE Educational Activities with the support of IEEE Computer Society will examine the current version of the IEEE Configuration Management Standard, explaining what configuration management is and detailing the traditional CM processes of configuration identification, status accounting, change control, and configuration audit. This course also explains the essential CM processes used in many organizations today to establish and protect the integrity of a product or product component throughout its lifespan. These processes take the product or product component from the determination of the intended users’ needs and definition of product requirements through the processes of development, testing, and delivery of the product, and even continuing through its installation, operation, maintenance, and eventual retirement.

What you will learn:

  • Explain what is configuration management
  • Examine CM processes
  • Discuss traceability and controlling changes
  • Review verification and validation
  • Consider release management

This course is part of the following course program:

Bob Aiello is an internationally established leader in configuration management (CM), application lifecycle management (ALM), and DevOps. He co-authored the 2012 IEEE 828 CM Standard that this course references and is currently the working group chair of the IEEE P828 CM working group, which is engaged in revising the 828 CM Standard. For over 25 years, Aiello has been a successful consultant across many industries, including finance, medicine, and cybersecurity. He has also served as a consultant for engineering companies working in the aerospace, defense and automotive fields. He was the first to identify the need for a DevOps standard in highly regulated industries and was assigned to lead the IEEE working group effort to create the international standard for implementing DevOps known as ISO 32675. The standard was adopted by ISO, IEEE, and the EIA. Aiello has also authored several books on CM, ALM, and DevOps, and in 2021 he was awarded the IEEE Standards Association Medallion for his outstanding achievement in the development and implementation of standards. Today, he is an IEEE liaison to ISO, focusing on DevOps and agile/lean methodology as well as serving on the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) G33 Configuration Management committee.
