MetadataShow full item record
Configuration management has become more important than ever to managers of DoD projects. The study evaluated the relevancy of the facilitating and obstructing factors to the success of the overall configuration management process in DoD projects. It also examined the correlation between years of experience and academic qualification as well as configuration management professionals supporting DoD projects and the criticality of each factor. Hypothesis testing indicated that all facilitating and obstructing factors are relevant to the success of the overall configuration management process in DoD projects. Hypothesis testing indicated four significant positive correlations with years of experience as configuration management and the criticality of these facilitating factors: management support, previous configuration management experience, professional development and effective support from stakeholders.
