Software Configuration Management - Foundation Level ( SCM-FL)

Duration of courses

2 Days



About the Course

The SCM Foundation Level is structured to progressively build knowledge and skills in SCM. With the knowledge from this course, participants will understand the single goal of SCM: To establish, define, and refine repeatable processes in order to achieve reliable, trustworthy software products. SCM when performed correctly and combined with SQA and Testing produces repeatable processes and products for any organization. The Course will mainly focus on the SCM seven (7) principles as defined in the SWEBOK. Other references and materials from various software and system development process standards are used to help clarify the SCM roles and responsibilities.

The SCM Foundation Level training focuses on configuration management (CM) and software configuration management (SCM); two intertwined disciplines which are critical to the success of any software project for any organization. The table below describes the topics covered in this training which are extracted from MSTB Program Syllabi v1.0.0.
