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.
If more information is needed (More Info) to evaluate a CR, or if a CR is rejected at any point in the process (e.g., confirmed as a Duplicate, Reject, etc.), the submitter is notified and may update the CR with new information. The updated CR is then re-Submitted to the CCB Review Queue for consideration of the new data.
Typical states that a Change Request may pass through are shown in Concepts: Change Request Management)
