Configuration management normally employs three types of configuration baselines, the functional, allocated, and product baselines, to provide for the progressive definition and documentation of the requirements and design information describing the various CIs designated for a system. The contractor shall recommend to the Government the types of specifications, in accordance with the order of preference criteria contained in MIL-STD-970, that should be used to define each CI; however, the actual specifications provided shall be those ultimately ordered in the contract. Those specifications are subject to review and approval/contractual implementation by the Government. The appropriate baseline for each CI shall be established with the approval/contractual implementation of that specification as defined in the contract.
18.104.22.168 Configuration baselines and their configuration documentation. The contractor shall establish configuration baselines for all CIs in accordance with the terms of the contract. The FCD, ACD, and PCD defining the configuration baselines shall be mutually consistent and compatible. Each succeeding level of configuration documentation from FCD to ACD to PCD shall be traceable to, and be a detailed extension of, its predecessor(s). If a conflict arises between levels of documentation, the order of precedence shall be (l) FCD, (2) ACD, and (3) PCD.
22.214.171.124.1 Functional Configuration Documentation (FCD). The contractor shall define the documentation required for the functional baseline in accordance with the requirements of the contract. The FCD shall be in the form of a system specification for a system, or a prime item development specification for a single item development program plus other applicable documentation. The FCD shall also identify the configuration documentation for selected items which are to be integrated or interfaced with the CI, such as items separately developed or currently in the inventory.
126.96.36.199.2 Allocated Configuration Documentation (ACD).
The contractor shall define the documentation required for the allocated
baseline in accordance with the requirements of the contract. The ACD shall
define requirements allocated from the FCD or from a higher level CI to a
lower level CI. The ACD shall be in the form of development or requirement
specifications, referenced interface control drawings/documents, and other applicable documentation. Requirements may be allocated to facilitate the management of complex CIs, to facilitate the development and integration of system components, or to focus management attention on critical or high-risk components.
188.8.131.52.3 Product Configuration Documentation (PCD). The contractor shall define the documentation required for the product baseline to a level of detail commensurate with logistics support requirements and procurement strategies, in accordance with the requirements of the contract. The PCD shall be in the form of product, material, and process specifications, engineering drawings, military specifications, and other technical documentation comprising a complete technical data package for the CI. The PCD may also be in the form of the actual software media. The PCD shall prescribe the necessary physical and functional characteristics of the CI and the verifications required to demonstrate required performance. The contractor shall document the PCD as specified in the contract.
184.108.40.206 Maintenance of configuration documentation. Once the related configuration baseline has been established, the contractor shall control and maintain the originals of the current approved configuration documentation for all configuration items specified in the contract.
