Introduction Seminar (optional) and Symposium - 1st day


08:00-12:00 00---Carol-Cotty CMII/IPE Introduction Seminar (optional)

The Introduction Seminar gives a brief overview of the CMII/IPE 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 half-day seminar will quantify the resources being spent on corrective action. It will identify the root causes and provide the CMII solutions.

This seminar 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.

Workshop: The CMII Game

Atos’ CM game has proven to be a perfect instrument for introducing the principles of CMII in any  organization including yours. Attendees will learn by playing the game about the closed-loop CMII change management process, the roles and responsibilities and how these relate to their actual product configuration structure and documents.
