A project to develop and publish a Configuration Management (CM)
Practice Standard for 2004.

"Configuration Management (CM) addresses the composition of a project, documentation defining the project, and other data that supports the project. CM is a baseline and requirements management process that provides managed control to all phases of a project life cycle. CM is a management discipline that applies technical and administrative direction to the development, production, and life cycle support of a project. In achieving this, CM is a management process for establishing and maintaining consistency of a project's performance, functional, and physical attributes with its requirements, design, development, and operational information
throughout its life..."
