This course will provide hands-on discussion and workshops related to the latest released EIA-649 principles and the associated best practices while giving real-world application methods.
The SAE EIA-649, Standard for Configuration Management, and the companion, SAE GEIA 649A Handbook, are Configuration Management (CM) standards used by both governmental and private enterprises worldwide. These standards provide the foundation of CM principles and graphic guidance used in regulated acquisition and enterprise environments.
This course will provide hands-on discussion and workshops related to the latest released EIA-649 principles and the associated best practices while giving real-world application methods. Additionally, the session will discuss contemporary and advanced techniques for applying Configuration Management requirements and best practices within rapidly evolving digital design and manufacturing environments.
This four-day course will facilitate detailed discussions and furnish examples integrated with foundational configuration principles outlined within
EIA-649. At the conclusion of the class, each student will receive a licensed digital copy of the latest versions of both the EIA-649 standard and the companion GEIA 649 Handbook.
