Conference Proceedings Paper
Paper C - The Configuration Management Challenge
32nd Annual CNS Conference - 2011 June 05-08
James Smith (Consultant to SNC-Lavalin)
Configuration Management is the process of ensuring the construction, operation, maintenance and testing of the systems, components and structures of a physical plant are in full compliance with the design requirements. It also warrants that all documentation detailing the physical plant is consistent with what actually exists, and is readily retrievable. A rigorous Configuration Management system supports making safe, knowledgeable and cost effective decisions with confidence. This paper addresses Configuration Management at the three levels of: “Utility Executive Level statement of need”, “…a why is this so important anyway discussion”, and as a “thoughtful tutorial” on its features and practice.
