Configuration managment under requirement management plan

Postby akc Sat Jun 22, 2019 8:10 am

While reading page 137 of pmbok 6's chapter about scope management , I found that one of the contents of requirement management plan is configuration management activities such as how changes will be initiated,how impacts will be analyzed, how they will be traced, tracked and reported as well as authorization levels to approve those changes.

To my best of understanding , the activities mentioned above refer to change management system as a whole rather than as a part of only configuration management . As far as I know configuration management pertains to the specifications & physical characteristics of the project artifacts.

Please share your inputs whether my observation about this statement of PMBOK 6 "configuration management activities such as how changes will be initiated,how impacts will be analyzed, how they will be traced, tracked and reported as well as authorization levels to approve those changes. " is correct or wrong.

I read the other posts about configuration management & the article about this topic but couldn't get the clarification.

Hence, I request you to share your inputs.

There was a typo error. Instead of chapter 6 , it is 137 of chapter 5. section 5.1.3.2
