Requirement Management and CMM

CM standards

CM should always be based on a set of standards which are applied within an organisation. Standards should define how items are identified, how changes are controlled and how new versions are managed. Standards may be based on external CM standards (e.g. IEEE standard for CM ANSI/IEEE Std. No. 828-1983, 1042-1987, 1028-1988). Existing standards are based on a waterfall process model - new standards are needed for evolutionary development.

As mentioned by Bersoff, no matter where you are in the system life cycle, the system will change, and the desire to change it will persist throughout the life cycle. It is therefore essential that we manage and control it in a fashion that this continuous change does not convert into chaos.
