Project success: It all starts with configuration management

By involving the configuration management team in a project from the beginning, it can create a baseline for the project and a repository for all documentation and deliverables.

QA and the configuration management (CM) team must be involved in each project from the very beginning. This allows QA to identify and quantify problems sooner. And it allows the CM team to create a baseline for the project and a repository for all documentation and deliverables, including project plans, project meeting minutes, reviews, walkthroughs and models.

By putting all documents and deliverables under CM, developers, QA and project manages always know that they are looking at the latest and greatest of whatever source they check out of the repository.
