MIL-STD-973 Configuration Management
MILITARY STANDARD CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT. This standard defines the requirements of configuration management as they apply to defense materiel items. Configuration management is a management discipline applied to configuration items (CIS) over their life cycle to ensure that the characteristics of CIS meet defined user requirements.
Configuration management requirements for software have been included in this standard. Where requirements are common to both hardware and software items, they are shown as requirements for CIS. Where requirements are not common to both hardware and software items, they are shown as requirements for computer software configuration items (CSCIS) or hardware configuration items (HWCIS), as applicable.
Notice 5, dated October 5, 2009 states: "MIL-STD-973, dated 17 April 1992, and INTERIM NOTICE 3, dated 13 January 1995, were canceled 30 September 2000. The EIA-649: “National Consensus Standard for Configuration Management” as adopted by DoD can be used as a replacement since it is almost a complete duplication of MIL-STD-973. Configuration EIA-649 provides the basic configuration management principles and the best practices employed by industry to identify product configuration and effect orderly management of product change."
