PURPOSE.

a. This Manual provides Coast Guard (CG) policy on Configuration Management (CM) and its implementation guidelines and procedures within the CG. CM is applicable to any entity adding value to the organization's overall capability. This value is the abstract result of goal setting, planning, and the application of resources in response to a need. This Manual identifies the principles for documenting and managing the products, services, assets, activities, facilities, systems, data, people, and the interoperability thereof (the who, what, when, where, why, and how) necessary to perform as the CG.

b. The CG is comprised of many entities that form an institutional level capability. A solution referred to as a Configuration Item (CI) could be hardware (HW) or software (SW) product, operating information document, facility, person, line of business, or an institution itself. The specific arrangement of a solution is referred to as its configuration, represented in a hierarchical manner. The level of independent CI management within the hierarchy can range from the top level itself, to a subsystem level, to a component level (cutter to an engine to an o-ring, computer to a software program to a line of code, standard/specification to a page to a paragraph, financial management line of business to strategic plan to a specific procedure, an individual rate to a qualification) or anywhere in between. A decision tree for use in determining CI level of management can be found in Chapter 3 of this Manual.
