  • Software Configuration Management (SCM) is a concept of trying to group the changing artifacts of software development to try to manage the complexity of modern day software. This paper provides a roadmap for improving the SCM support process based on a meta-model. I developed a model that defines key practice areas that are important for the SCM support group. The model deals with the process, quality assurance and usability aspect of the SCM activities. A questionnaire to assess the state of the current process and a mapping of the questions to the model is also presented. This is the first attempt at dealing with the support aspect of the SCM part of software development.
  • Keywords: Software Configuration Management, process improvement, meta­model, key practices, quality assurance, usability.
