Software Configuration Management practices include establishing baselines and revision control, so if something goes wrong, the Software Configuration Management system can identify what has changed and who changed it. If a particular configuration is working well, the Software Configuration Management system can determine how to replicate it across many hosts.

Software Configuration Management helps to remove the confusion that can often be caused by miscommunication among team members. The Software Configuration Management system controls the basic components such as design documents, program code, software objects, test data, test output, and user manuals.
