CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT, MSFC PROGRAMS/PROJECTS
|Publication Date:||14 June 2001|
This Marshall Procedures and Guidelines (MPG) provides a consistent and systematic method to implement policies and the Configuration Management requirements of MPD 1280.1, "Marshall Management Manual" (MMM). This procedure addresses the planning and implementation of the basic Configuration Management (CM) functions: Configuration Identification, Configuration Control, Configuration Accounting, and Configuration Audits. This MPG establishes the method for implementing CM for programs and projects for which MSFC has responsibility. Implementation of this procedures will satisfy the configuration management requirements of NPD 7120.4 and MPD 1280.1.
The requirements in this procedure are applicable to all elements of MSFC that have responsibility for implementing CM for programs and projects for which MSFC has responsibility. Exception: All programs/projects initiated prior to September 1, 1997, having an approved Configuration Management Plan (CMP), are exempt from the requirements of this procedure. All new programs/projects initiated subsequent to September 1, 1997, are required to meet the requirements in this procedure. CM is applicable to flight, qualification, protoflight, designated development hardware/software, configuration item (CI) -associated support equipment, and CI-unique facilities. During the formulation phase, provisions shall be made for initiation of CM requirements via a CMP tailored to the program, project, or activity in accordance with MWI 8040.1 and in compliance with this procedure. The requirements of this procedure apply during formulation and implementation phases and continue for the life cycle of the CI.
