Standard: IEEE Std 828 - IEEE Standard for Software Configuration Management Plans

From IEEE Software Engineering Standards Collection:

IEEE Std 828. This standard is similar in format to IEEE Std 730, but deals with the more limited subject of software configuration management. The standard identifies requirements for configuration identification, configuration control, configuration status accounting and reporting, and configuration audits and reviews. The implementation of those requirements provides a means by which the evolution of the software product items are recorded, communicated and controlled. This provides assurance of the integrity and continuity of the software product items as they evolve through the software development and maintenance life cycle.
