Abstract: Existing software Configuration Management (CM) tools are limited in the support they provide for configuration and change management of hierarchically structured software systems. This paper describes a framework for CM of subsystems?logically coherent collections of software development artefacts, including code, documentation and test sets. The goal is to provide visibility of changes at intermediate levels between whole-system and source-code levels, thereby reducing the complexity of the build, V&V and change management processes. The framework supports characterisation of subsystems and changes to subsystems, and provides hooks into change tracking processes.
