Software & Hardware Configuration Management in Systems Engineering

  • Course Program

This course program developed by IEEE Educational Activities with the support of IEEE Computer Society teaches essential configuration management core concepts for both hardware and software starting with the requirements specified in the IEEE 828 standard. We will look at established, modern, and emerging best practices including Agile SCM, through real-world examples and studies. We will see how to reduce risk and enable rapid response to malware, ransomware and other malicious attacks that can be introduced at any point in the supply chain. We will also examine how to assess existing organizational practices for the purpose of improving them.

What you will learn:

  • Review the theoretical foundation of traditional configuration management basics and the IEEE 828 standard
  • Understand CM best practices such as version control, build, release and deployment engineering
  • Examine modern CM practices such as Agile SCM and explaining the unique requirements of implementing SCM to support agile development
  • Consider emerging and future CM practices including SCM in the supply chain, and software bill of materials (SBOM)
  • Determine methods to assess and improve existing organizational CM practices
