Abstract : The User Equipment (UE) Global Positioning System (GPS) Configuration Control structures, procedures and information system up to March 1983 is critiqued. Our objective was to explore the existing configuration management plans in terms of documentation, with specific emphasis on the feasibility of the configuration control plans for the Navy unique and DoD common items. Our conclusion is that the GPS Configuration Control Structure is fundamentally sound. However, a major problem of integrating the various facets of configuration control management exists. To correct this deficiency, the GPS Program must now obtain interservice and intraservice written agreements of Configuration Control Responsibility to further specify and clarify each service's configuration control boundaries.
