The change and configuration management process flow provides the overall structure for this SMF with a consistent set of processes for initiating and completing changes.

Change and configuration management consists of the following tasks:

  • Baseline the configuration.
  • Initiate the change.
  • Classify the change.
  • Approve the change.
  • Develop and test the change.
  • Release the change.
  • Validate and review the change.
