Configuration Management is not a requirement of ISO 9001 but it is from the AS perspective. Simply, it is a way to control the various 'versions' of parts, sub-assemblies and assemblies that make up a product.

If you take two model years of (apparently) the same car, you'll find subtle but often important changes, which may (or may not) be interchangeable. An example I'm familiar with is the steering wheel on my car, which was changed from 2006 to 2007. Same functions, but different style, colors, buttons etc. I'm not sure if you can swap over an 07 wheel to an 06 car, or the other way round - but GM and the dealership should, through configuration management. They have parts lists, build configurations etc to define part numbers & revisions etc are used on what products.

Foregoing posts have given ample on the subject, I am adding a brief here.

'Configuration Management' is the management and tracking of articles.

Important elements of CM are:

Version control

Articles created during a project, must be easily found and kept in a safe store. Besides, all members of the team must have easy accessability to the most current as well as old versions. History-cards maintained for each article, allows the team members to understand why decisions were made at the time of change.

Change Management

Once the articles are approved and base lined, any further changes have to go through the change management, which allows the team members to maintain control over the entire project. Customer's request for any change is also of importance here.

Reporting

Report on the articles in safe store permits the Project Managers to assess the status of the project, determine vulnerable areas, and ensure that no unauthorised changes are being made at any stage.

Here is 'Glossary of terms used in CM' and "Frquently Asked Questions" on the subject.
