Re: Parallel Development Strategies for Software Configuration Management
"Quality: Configuration Management and ISO 9001" article in Summer 1999 issue of Methods & Tools Magazine (quoted by martinig) lists the definitions of Software Configuration Management by IEEE, ISO and SEI.
"Beyond Version Control and Defect Tracking" whitepaper of Rational (now IBM) defines, Software Cofiguration Management is the combination of Software Artifact Management (SAM) and Defect & Change tracking. Software Artifact Management is the process of storing, accessing, organizing and maintaining information and versioned histories of all components. Defect & Change tracking provides a centralized, secure, reliable system for capturing, storing, resolving and analyzing defect and other change requests.
