Abstract
Much has been written about the Configuration Management (CM) in software, and very little about his interest in the Aircraft Industry, where the complexity for an airplane is increasing. The pieces of the aircraft are manufactured in different countries, even the same parts are assembled in different countries and factories. Designs in different materials and increasingly lightweight, but do not increase the complexity, and it connects to customers seeking very different versions of the same model, which are changing over the years. The two most important objectives of the CM are to guarantee that there is compliance between the products and services that have been delivered to the customer, and to support the process of application for individual certificate of airworthiness, while optimized business performances are taken into account. The main objective of the study is how the CM is implemented in the aviation industry with an immediate applicability to industry. CM is well suited to solving complex problems and allows the reduction of periods of integration and design, so that reduce delivery time to customers.
