Configuration Management Software Systems


A well organized configuration management software system can save companies from needless administrative errors and communication gaps.

There are many ways to define a configuration management software system and for one company it will mean something entirely different than it will for another. However, for many manufacturing and life science companies a configuration management software will commonly refer to effective BOM (Bill of Materials) controls, supplier controls, document management and/or additional proces controls.
