Define Requirements, Quality, Change and Configuration Management


Global Configuration Management (GCM) is an application that assembles configurations for itself and other contributing applications so teams can gain an overall view of the physical and logical parts of their product offering.

This discussion will focus on the Requirements aspect of the GCM capabilities, and will present a very simple model for creating variants of an initial product baseline.

In this presentation you will learn how to:

  • Gather contributions from GCM and CLM applications, such as requirements, designs, tests, and global configurations.
  • Plan and manage the reuse of configurations in the many versions or variants of your physical or logical product line.
  • Recreate a development environment from the past.
  • Resolve links between versioned artifacts within and across CLM applications.
  • Work in parallel on multiple development streams.
We have helped our clients:
  • Increase productivity by 25-75%
  • Reduce development costs by 50-60%
  • Accelerate time to market by 20-40%

SAFe provided the agility, visibility, and transparency needed to ensure we could integrate with numerous other efforts, get predictable in our delivery, and ensure timelines are met.
