Software Configuration Management Handbook

In any development of software it is absolutely crucial to have well defined files in known states before any builds of the overall software environment are undertaken, or in fact any work is done on any files.

Software configuration management, SCM, processes bring control and order to a project, and although they can appear to require additional work, this investment pays for itself very many times over.

This book: Software Configuration Management Handbook, provides an excellent guide to implementing, operating, and maintaining a successful SCM system for software development. The book covers all the key topics required for implementing and running a successful software configuration management environment. It contains 23 chapters, each devoted to a different aspect of software configuration management. An appendix provides additional resources and bibliography.

The contents of the Software Configuration Management Handbook include: Overview of SCM; The Software Development Process; Pitfalls in the Software Development Process; Need and Importance of SCM; Basic Concepts; Configuration Identification; Configuration Control; Status Accounting; Configuration Verification and Audits; Advanced Concepts; SCM Standards; Software Process Improvement Models and SCM; SCM Plans; SCM Organization; SCM Tools; Documentation Management and Control & Product Data Management; SCM Implementation; The Different Phases of SCM Implementation; SCM Deployment Models and Transition Strategies; Source Code Repositories; SCM Implementation Challenges; SCM Operation and Maintenance; SCM in Special Circumstances.

The book is aimed at a variety of people including project managers, system designers, and software developers as well as students. It provides all the necessary information needed and all in one volume. In addition to this, the book provides the concepts so that they can be implemented anywhere and it does not link it to a specific tool. In this way the book is applicable to any environment where software is used.
