As a Configuration Manager you will be able to create, coordinate and implement the Configuration Management Plan (CMP) for Product Creation Process (PCP) projects in co-operation with the Project Manager and project team members. The configuration management relates to:

Product change control:

  • Setup infrastructure for defect management;
  • Participate in various Change Control Boards.

Build management using e.g. Jenkins

  • Take ownership for software Configuration Management (CM) activities such as setting up build and test management frameworks, managing archives in a version control system such as SVN and GIT and software releasing;
  • Participate as the software CM expert in product development projects and maintenance activities to plan and execute software CM activities and provide the best software development infrastructure (SDI).

Software development tooling:

  • Supports tool validation;
  • Contributes to the definition of software sets used in the product creation process.
  • Create a Master List (DHF list) for the project in WindChill;
  • Give SW-development tool support to software engineers.

Another key responsibility is to help preparing DPS on the mentioned areas for the growth DPS is experiencing. The Configuration Manager we are looking for has oversight of both the area of CM and related disciplines and departments. The CM takes the lead in defining an improvement roadmap, considering subjects like configuration identification, control, status accounting and auditing. This roadmap should include procedures and tools for further automation. This responsibility also contains initiating improvement projects and deployment and training colleagues.
