CM2 - Configuration Management

CM2(CMII) is an enhanced and modernized version of Configuration Management that helps to reduce product development and product change cycle times by improving the quality of requirements. In our CM2 Trainings (Configuration management trainings) students will get best practices, roles, workflows and templates for out-of-the-box usage in any project. 

With better requirements rework, corrective action, recalls etc. will be minimized - the organization will reach "Integrated Process Excellence" level.

Benefits of Using CM2

  • Profit Increase thru Cost Avoidance

    One focus of the CMII/IPE Standard is on minimizing/avoiding corrective action. By reducing corrective action, unnecessary costs will be avoided leading to increased profit and/or increased room for investment.

  • More room for creativity thru less rework

    Most organizations spend more than 50% of resources on intervention fixing problems. If corrective action declines real improvements will go up.

  • Reduced Lead Time of Changes

    Lead time for changes will be reduced dramatically by using the unique "fast-track" capability of the Closed-Loop CMII change process. More changes can be implemented in the same period than before.

  • Competitive Advantage thru Shorter Development Cycles

    Products will be released into the market earlier by using CMII/IPE principles in product development - with better quality and less failure that today.

  • Unique and Identical Training Program World-Wide

    All CMII/IPE Courses are offered world-wide with identical content and detailed how-to's no other training program offers. Course attendees will reach the same level of know-how - world-wide.
