As Planned/As Released Baseline

Dependencies

Dependencies limit the possible sequences of events

If you missed the previous articles from the CM Baseline series, please check them out first: Understanding the Impact of Changes introduces the need for the CM Baseline. Connections tell the Story introduces the first component of the CM Baseline, the Business Object Graph. Intentions are the desire for new Stories, introduced the second component of the CM Baseline, the Impact Matrix. This article will explore the third component of the CM… Read More »Dependencies limit the possible sequences of events

Intentions are the desire for new Stories

In the CM Baseline series, I have used the analogy of flights, flight plans, gates, control towers to explain how difficult it becomes to manage changes and their dependencies to explain the need for the CM2 Baseline, a.k.a. As Planned/As Released Baseline ( ‘Understanding the Impact of Changes‘).  In ‘Connections tell the Story,’ I explained how a Business Object Graph connecting the data from a business perspective across the expert domain… Read More »Intentions are the desire for new Stories

Connections tell the Story

In my previous post, ‘Understanding the Impact of Changes‘, I used the analogy of flights, flight plans, gates, control towers to explain how difficult it becomes to manage changes and their dependencies. To address this, CM2 from the Institute for Process Excellence has a solution called the CM2 Baseline or a.k.a. the As Planned/As Released Baseline. And while the SAE-EIA-649C standard for Configuration Management in its latest revision hints at this type… Read More »Connections tell the Story

Understanding the Impact of Changes

Imagine a world in which we do not have air traffic control, we do not have flight plans or track the progress against these flight plans, but we do have all the flights we have pre-covid19 and we only have line of sight. Every 45 seconds, a plane arrives or departs at any given major airport. How would you prevent catastrophic plane crashes in such a world? Probably flying would… Read More »Understanding the Impact of Changes
