Software configuration management

In software engineering, Software Configuration Management (SCM) is the task of tracking and controlling changes in the software. Configuration management practises include revision control and the establishment of baselines.

SCM concerns itself with answering the question: somebody did something, how can one reproduce it? Often the problem involves not reproducing “it” identically, but with controlled, incremental changes. Answering the question will thus become a matter of comparing different results and of analysing their differences. Traditional CM typically focused on controlled creation of relatively simple products. Nowadays, implementers of SCM face the challenge of dealing with relatively minor increments under their own control, in the context of the complex system being developed.
