Complete Change Request Form To top of page

The Change Request Form is a formally submitted artifact that is used to track all requests (including new features, enhancement requests, defects, changed requirements, etc.) along with related status information throughout the project lifecycle. All change history will be maintained with the CR, including all state changes along with dates and reasons for the change. This information will be available for any repeat reviews and for final closing. An example Change Request Form is provided in Artifact: Change Requests.

Submit the Change Request To top of page

Once the CR is completed, it should be submitted through the proper channels to assure compliance with the established Change Request Management Process. Any stakeholder on the project can submit a Change Request (CR). The CR is logged into the CR Tracking System (e.g., ClearQuest) and is placed into the CCB Review Queue, by setting the CR state to Submitted.

Typical states that a Change Request may pass through are shown in Concepts: Change Request Management)
