Configuration management (CM) — an IT process that establishes configuration standards for each asset in a company’s network, automatically alerting business leaders of any issues that require updates, reconfiguration, or patches and promoting consistency across the network— is becoming an increasingly standard approach that companies are employing to reduce their vulnerability to cyberthreats.

Software & Hardware Configuration Management in Systems Engineering is a five-course program that outlines the essential core concepts with the requirements specified in IEEE Standard 828, while applying best practices including Agile SCM, through real-world examples and case studies.

Upon completion of the course, learners will understand:

  • Theoretical foundations of traditional CM basics and IEEE Standard 828
  • CM best practices, such as version control, build, release and deployment engineering
  • Modern CM practices such as Agile Software Configuration Management (SCM) and the unique requirements of implementing SCM to support agile development
  • Emerging and future CM practices including SCM in the supply chain, and software bill of materials (SBOM)
  • Methods to assess and improve existing organizational CM practices
