An effective systems development and design process is far easier to explain than it is to implement. A framework is needed that organizes the life cycle activities that form the process. This framework is Configuration Management (CM). Software Configuration Management discusses the framework from a standards viewpoint, using the original DoD MIL-STD-973 and EIA-649 standards to describe the elements of configuration management within a software engineering perspective. Divided into two parts, the first section is composed of 14 chapters that explain every facet of configuration management related to software engineering. The second section consists of 25 appendices that contain many valuable real world CM templates. The content is extensive and inclusive, covering everything from CM planning to configuration identification, verification, and auditing. Although it is vendor-neutral, it offers a serious discussion of what to look for in a CM tool and lists toolsets for review. This volume is a sourcebook of techniques, templates, and best practices in the field, providing software engineers and systems developers with what they need to run a successful CM program.

Effective software configuration management (SCM) strategies promote a healthy, team-oriented culture that produces better software. Software Configuration Management Patterns alleviates software engineers' most common concerns about software configuration management--perceived rigidity and an overemphasis on process. Through the use of patterns, the authors show that a properly managed workflow can avert delays, morale problems, and cost overruns. The patterns approach illustrates how SCM can be easily and successfully applied in small- to mid-size organizations. By learning how these patterns relate to each other, readers can avoid common mistakes that too often result in frustrated developers and reduced productivity. Key coverage includes instruction on how to: Develop the next version of a product while fixing problems with the current one. Develop code in parallel with other developers and join up with the current state of codeline. Identify what versions of code went into a particular component. Analyze where a change happened in the history of a component's development. Use current tools more effectively, and decide when to use a manual process. Incrementally introduce good practices into individual workspaces and throughout the organization. Identify crucial aspects of the software process so that team projects can run smoothly. Build and foster a development environment focused on producing optimal teamwork and quality products. Software Configuration Management Patterns also includes a detailed list of SCM tools and thorough explanations of how they can be used to implement the patterns discussed in the book. These proven techniques will assist readers to improve their processes and motivate their workforce to collaborate in the production of higher quality software. 0201741172B09202002

Software configuration management (SCM) is one of the scientific tools that is aimed to bring control to the software development process. This new resource is a complete guide to implementing, operating, and maintaining a successful SCM system for software development. Project managers, system designers, and software developers are presented with not only the basics of SCM, but also the different phases in the software development lifecycle and how SCM plays a role in each phase. The factors that should be considered and the pitfalls that should be avoided while designing the SCM system and SCM plan are also discussed. In addition, this third edition is updated to include cloud computing and on-demand systems. This book does not rely on one specific tool or standard for explaining the SCM concepts and techniques; In fact, it gives readers enough information about SCM, the mechanics of SCM, and SCM implementation, so that they can successfully implement a SCM system.

With this book, individual developers and small development teams can gain the benefits of configuration management that were previously restricted to large organizations with large budgets.This pragmatic, easy-to-read guide to configuration management comes with all the freeware PC developers need to get started. Developers will learn the basic concepts of configuration management -- ways to keep track of source code files, graphical images, help files and other elements associated with software development. They will also learn how to customize basic configuration management techniques to their own working environments. The book focuses on the PC platform, discussing free and inexpensive tools and technologies, rather than the expensive, complex configuration management systems that have been developed for large teams.All PC software developers.
