4. General Requirements
4.1 Baseline management

A baseline is the documentation or listing of configuration items at the time when the documentation represents a meaningful statement of the performance requirements and is subject to configuration management. Baselines must be established anytime in a program when a formal departure point must be defined for control of future changes in performance and design. There are normally three program baselines: functional, allocated, and product. Equipment management may employ all three baselines or employ only the functional and product baselines depending upon program complexity and requirements.
