If you have a product development project, it is important to set up Configuration item records.

It sounds technical, but it is actually quite simple. It's essentially a way of keeping tabs on everything that is related to the development of your product or service.

The configuration item records will contain details like: version numbers, locations, status and responsible persons etc.

It's the best way to make sure nothing gets lost in the mix of moving parts that form a product development project. It can be really easy to get confused, so having this system in place will allow everyone to keep track of what is going on, and be able to locate specific items when needed.

For example, a customer may ask for a specific version number to be implemented, but you'd need to know where that version is in the development stages. It will also help when the time comes to deliver your product, since everyone will have all of the information at his or her fingertips.

The Configuration Item Record works by allowing information about the products or services being developed to be recorded in a central place. It's essentially a way of keeping tabs on everything that is related to the development of your product or service.

At Innovolo, we provide our customers with a access to our smart system. This allows our customers to keep track of which stage everything is in, and it makes sure that you never miss a step along the way.

So instead of forgetting about an important detail or getting mixed messages from different people, the Configuration Item Record will ensure that everyone involved with your product development project is on the same page.
