Configuration management is the way to master the large technical information flows in the product creation process. The technical information that is generated in the joint product creation process is closely linked to specific product characteristics and different stages in the creation process. In successive stages technical information is an expression of requirements, architecture, design, engineering, logistics, manufacturing, use and service knowledge. An excellent established and executed configuration management process has a direct positive impact on product and process quality.
We as technicians create this technical information partly for ourselves, but above all to meet the requirements (input) and to communicate (output) to the next user in the value creation chain. A complex task, given the large and often geographically dispersed teams, the variety of technical and supportive disciplines (logistics, quality control and ICT), the time pressure and the many stakeholders that need to be satisfied. Not to mention the system complexity itself.
Needless to say, jointly managing a very comprehensive product configuration information package is an information logistics challenge.

This course helps all those who work in a product creation process to understand the essence of configuration management and its positioning within a company. We will thoroughly deal with the various components of configuration management to get a clear picture of the roles and responsibilities of different employees.
We do this by theoretical substantiation, but more importantly by workshops were we focus on practical examples from each of the course participants. They will gain insight into the existence of different work methods and in addition be able to review his or her own configuration management methods in relation to best practices.
After successful completion of this course, the participant will have insight in:
