649-B CM PRINCIPLES, TAILORING & IMPLEMENTATION Course Code: CM-649-B 3 days
ANSI/EIA-649-B Configuration Management Standard is the de facto CM guidance document for commercial and government enterprises. But implementation and compliance can be a daunting task. 649-B contains only a handful mandatory requirements (shall, will, must statements). 649 is a great foundation. But it puts the burden on users to structure requirements, tailor, and implement a conforming CM program from very broad CM Principles and "rational." No worries, this is where our course is different from others you may have seen. We go beyond teaching the content of 649-B. This course also covers 649-1, and will include NASA EIA649-2 and other standards when they are released. During this course you will learn strategic and detailed CM planning for implementing a 649-B compliant CM program:

At the start of the course attendees will receive our supplemental resource of CM information and application guide. These are used in class workshops and projects to reinforce concepts learned with practical examples and experience. These include everything you need to assess the maturity of your CM process, analyze the 649 CM Standard, and create your own unique tailored 649 compliant Configuration Management Strategic Planning Map. Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptops and handhelds to class for use in our workshops and projects. Everyone will benefit from completing our 649 Track and Certification. It doesn't matter if you are new to CM, already have CM certifications, work with hardware, software, documentation, government, defense or in a commercial industry, this track applies to everyone. This course includes hands-on interactive group experiences designed to facilitate long term retention of what you learn in the course.
Attendees will develop a CM Strategic Planning Map into a 649 compliant Configuration Management Requirements Document, CM Implementation Plan and CMP, specifically tailored to their environment, using the latest tools and techniques in class. For those with current CM plans, we recommend you bring them with you for analysis, validation and improvements in our workshops. You will not only learn how to write a 649 compliant CMP, but how to review one as well. In addition to presentations, team projects, and class workshops, attendees will receive individual mentoring by our internationally recognized speaker and SMEs. This is the only CM track in the world where attendees leave with certification and a roadmap for implementing a 649 CM program. Standards can be long and dry. Sitting for days listening to a speaker read slides or staring at a monitor can be painful ... the mind can only absorb as much as the rear can endure. That is why we teach 649 with the right proportion of lecture and hands-on interactive experiences. If you learn by doing, in a dynamic group environment, this 649 course is right for you.
