370 – Configuration Management and Transfer (CMT) Training Syllabus

Configuration Management & Transfer is responsible for the management of LIMS data that enables the user to keep track of the entire lifecycle of LIMS data modifications and ensures that all the data changes are under control. The 2-day course will provide a detailed picture about the Change Control mechanism that will operate on both the configuration and master data. The course would guide us through the implementation of Change Request, Check-In, Check-Out and a Visualization tool. Additionally, CMT provides an improved solution pertaining to Import and Export thereby solving the short comings related to the previous CTT Tool.

Prerequisites and Target Audience
