Good Morning Peers! I am seeking some information regarding Configuration Management. (This ISO is a guided addition to the 9001.) Configuration Management assists a company in ensuring the integrity of information throughout its life cycle (think of it as a guide to controlling and communicating documented information). It has been posed to me the option of taking over as the Configuration Manager for a project that will span multiple facilities and organizations. I am trying to learn all that I can about what it means and what I would be undertaking, but this is a small field and there is little information out there for the quality side of configuration. There is a lot of knowledge about Tech and software control, but nothing on quality and project documents for manufacturing.
Is anyone able to guide, or just want to talk and bounce ideas?
First Question: What is the point of Configuration Status Accounting? Is it just a snapshot of the current status to be reported/saved as a backup point?
Thank you in advance!
