Abstract : This paper outlines the development plan for a configuration management system at NIST. This system will control both document and software development for four organizations: the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the IGES/PDES Organization (IPO), PDES, Inc., and the National PDES Testbed (NPT). The primary goal of configuration management is to provide an orderly framework within which the development of the STEP standard can take place. This paper provides an overview of configuration management, describes the procedural and technical issues that must be handled in developing a system, outlines the steps that will be taken to reach the goal and defines the deliverables and the resources needed.
