DEFINITION AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SOFTWARE PRODUCTS’ CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT PROCESS

One of the most complex in software engineering is the management of the devices produced by a working team consisting of tens or hundreds of people who concurrently modify the assets. The number of generated products is increasing, plus the platforms and communication channels and the elements that must be aligned.

Therefore, the risk of carrying out a wrong management of the configuration is increasingly great, which implies the delivery of an incorrect version of the product, that is to say, loss of time, money and resources. 

With this service, MTP ensures the integrity of the developed products and services, by covering from the SCMP (Software Configuration Management Plan) design, up to the identification of configuration elements, creation of the configuration management catalogue structure, implementation of changes control over configuration elements, creation of reports on configuration status and CM audits.

In order to provide this service, MTP uses different technologies, such as CMMI, SPICE (ISO 15504), ITIL, as well as tools for the management of tasks, requirements, source code, storehouse or repository of produced devices, etc.

With it, the organization obtains a set of processes and tools that will enable it to manage and communicate the changes in baselines and configuration elements all through the software life cycle. More concretely, it will be able to:

  • Ensure the right configuration of the software.

  • Provide the ability to control changes, hence more swiftness in service restoration.

  • Have a better control of software products, always knowing about the situation for each particular change and for the system in general.

  • Reduce the overexertion caused by problems in integrity.

  • Improve the management and resolution of incidences.

  • Guarantee that all the team works on the same product baseline.

  • Standardize and homogenize the working method.

  • Reduce the cost of unnecessary duplications.

  • Facilitate mechanisms for inspection/audit in order to detect automatically the failures in synchronism between executable and source or related elements, and to be able to take the right actions in passing to production.
