Abstract:

The mission of CALS is to enhance operational readiness of DoD weapon systems through application of information technology to the management of technical information. CALS will automate the current paper-intensive processes involved in weapon system design, manufacture, and support. In so doing, CALS will provide the DoD with integrated access to digitally stored data. The result will be reduced acquisition and logistics costs through improved productivity and improvements in weapon system reliability and maintainability. For this transformation to occur, CALS must provide data management functions that guarantee availability, consistency and security of the information that weapon system development and operations depend on. Among these critical functions is configuration management CM, which documents and controls the state of the weapon system
