Question on Configuraon Control

Guys, I am not sure to get it...

What is not the purpose of configuration control when configuration management is applied in a project?

1 )Verification that the configuration identification for a configuration item is accurate, complete, and will meet specified program needs.

2 ) Ensuring that proposed and approved changes to configuration items are fully analyzed.

3 ) Ensuring that proposed and approved changes to configuration items are fully documented.

4 ) Managing and controlling the frequently requested changes to a project by applying agreed rules.

What PMBOK Says :

Configuration control is focused on the specification of both the deliverables and the processes; while change control is focused on identifying, documenting, and approving or rejecting changes to the project documents,
deliverables, or baselines.

Configuration identification. Identification and selection of a configuration item to provide the basis for which the product configuration is defined and verified, products and documents are labeled, changes are managed, and accountability is maintained.

Configuration status accounting. Information is recorded and reported as to when appropriate data about the configuration item should be provided. This information includes a listing of approved configuration identification, status of proposed changes to the configuration, and the implementation status of approved changes.

Configuration verification and audit. Configuration verification and configuration audits ensure the composition of a project’s configuration items is correct and that corresponding changes are registered, assessed, approved, tracked, and correctly implemented. This ensures the functional requirements defined in the configuration documentation have been met.

The Answer is Question 1
"Verification that the configuration identification for a configuration item is accurate, complete, and will meet specified program needs. "

Pretty weird, the PMBOK Said this abount configuration control :

Configuration identification. Identification and selection of a configuration item.

Doest the Answer 1, is the one because it talk about "Program Needs' instead of Project needs ? is it the buzzword we are looking for ?

To answer your question :

Yes, we need to look carefully if the question talks about project or program.  PMP is all about project management and not 'program management'.

I appreciate if someone understand what they mean in PMBOK.  

Intuitively configuration identification is related to planning activities and configuration control - to monitor and control activities

 

 

What is the correct answer in the source you got it from?
