Configuration control involves quite a bit of work with blueprints. Blueprints or engineering drawings are the documents that define the detailed physical configuration of a system. This is the physical appearance and reality of the system. The role of configuration control is to keep these blueprints up-to-date, such that all approved physical changes are added to and reflected in the blueprints.
Blueprints are usually organized into assembly drawings, detail drawings, control drawings, interface drawings, and parts lists. A long and thorough tutorial on these documents is beyond the scope of this web site. However,
additional information and guidance on system engineering technical data can be found at a U.S. Army web page. To check it out, click on the tank below:
