June 21, 2010: Pre-Conference with CMII Tutorial

The Pre-Conference gives a brief overview of the CMII model for Configuration Management. It is an ideal introduction into CMII.

icm-logo.jpgCMII is about changing faster and documenting better. It is about accommodating change and keeping requirements clear, concise and valid. This one-day tutorial will quantify the resources being spent on corrective action. It will identify the root causes and provide the CMII solutions.

This tutorial describes how physical item hierarchies can be used to break end-item products down into their most manageable increments and how a closed-loop change process is used to process changes and upgrade requirements.

It will describe how to categorize changes and process at least 75% of the total on a fast-track basis, the major cost drivers for changes and how those costs can be minimized.

Finally, it will describe the potential for using one common change process throughout the entire organization.
