In this case descriptions of these mechanisms could be covered in your Quality Management Plan without the need for a separate Configuration Plan. It is important to separate two sides of configuration management: the way in which items are placed under configuration control and thereafter changed (the organisational aspect), and how configuration control activities are recorded, especially in the deliverable items themselves (the physical aspect). Before a baseline is taken or an item is issued it should be subjected to some form of review that has as its aim determining and recording the precise status of the item or set of items.

Does the technique help or hinder teamwork? • Does it produce clearly identifiable deliverable items? In particular, are there clear criteria for telling when they are complete? • Does the technique fit with the regime for configuration management? • What benefits can one expect from using the technique in the phase(s) where it is useful? • What are the net benefits given the relative importance of these phases and the deliverables produced? • What will it cost to acquire and use the technique?
