Abstract

In order to deploy effect Software Configuration Management (SCM) technology and practices, it is important to follow a roadmap of SCM tasks and to align the SCM tasks with the appropriate target level within an organization. The three primary target levels include implementing SCM tasks at the organization; the application; and the project level. By aligning SCM tasks to the appropriate level, the chances for a more effective SCM implementation may increase. It is also important to implement SCM in a practical sequence of events so that past SCM tasks can lead to more effective completion of future SCM tasks. This paper will; 1) provide a brief analysis of success & failure criteria; 2) identify SCM tasks to the appropriate target level; and 3) provide a practical sequence of SCM tasks (along with templates, procedures, policy, guidelines, etc.) to help SCM personnel improve their chances of implementing SCM successfully.
