Topic outline

  • Task: PP080-002


    Pre-Production

    Knowledge Category: III.G. Configuration Management

    Functional Discipline: Quality

    ADLI Scale: III.G.

    Process: Ensure Configuration Controls

    Process Purpose: 

    Ensures a congruence of part configuration with engineering configuration, and that changes to one are adequately coordinated with the other. Implementation of approved changes are planned produceably (e.g., ability to implement the appropriate configuration in production and in servicing) and effectively either in line or through modification kits which are thoroughly coordinated with the affected internal and / or external organizations.

    Supplier Emphasis: 

    To the extent that a supplier has design authority, ensure the existence and enforcement of configuration management processes that support the program's needs. For suppliers without design authority, ensure a closed loop, rapid response notification system, enabling the supplier to be notified of changes to configuration through purchase order revisions or other contractual vehicles.

    Knowledge and Skills Requirements: 

    Ability to verify congruence of part configuration with engineering configuration, and that changes to one are adequately coordinated with the other. Ability to verify the implementation of approved changes are planned produceably and effectively either in line or through modification kits which are thoroughly coordinated with the affected internal and / or external organizations.
