The DoD Configuration Management Information System (CMIS) supports the configuration, engineering, and technical data management functions of the Department of Defense (DoD) community with a standard Web Based Automated Information System (AIS).
- Configuration Identification: Cross references all Configuration Item (CI) technical data (specifications, drawings, parts, National Stock Numbers),
- Configuration Control: Automates Engineering Change Proposal (ECP)/Request for Deviation/Request for Waiver process; flags proposed and pending changes, including impact to baselines/product reports,
- Configuration Status Accounting: Freezes and compares engineering Configuration Baselines; records changes to items; track multiple baselines, and
- Configuration Audit: Records audit results and identifies baseline deltas.
The secondary objectives of CMIS are to provide an open system that can communicate effectively with other AIS, a system that is portable across multiple hardware platforms, and a system that reduces data redundancy existing in today's information support environment.
CMIS provides accurate, complete, and accessible configuration data to ensure successful maintenance and operations of DoD weapon systems or tracked assets. CMIS enhances mission readiness and operational capability in measurable terms by providing instant consistent integrated configuration data to operators, maintainers, and logistics personnel.
