This process generally takes a few basic steps that can be elaborated to fit local practices: • a change request is raised perhaps to report a suspected bug or to request some change in functionality, • the implications of the change are established and reviewed, • the cost and timescale implications are evaluated and presented for approval to the appropriate body, • iterations possibly occur in order to find a compromise between the ideal change and the incurred cost changes, • the authorising body approves the change, • the project manager schedules the required changes, 23 • configuration control procedures are followed in order to capture the change and its ripple effects clearly.

How much of a problem will design control be? In terms of volume and the communication problems implied? • What level of reliability is required? Must the system be algebraically proven correct or will traditional testing suffice? What are the implications for analysis of test coverage, path coverage and other forms of static analysis? How much will the tools and methods help here? • What are the properties of the host environment? How high a level does the virtual machine offered by the hosting OS achieve?
