    The compatibility of all technical interfaces must be guaranteed by activity CM 4.3 "Interface Coordination". Changing the existing interface structure or the existing Interface Descriptions have to be reported to the CM by the changing instance. CM must control and coordinate the interface modification, i. e. all corresponding products must be found out, the staff members in charge informed and supplied with the changed Interface Description.

    In the case of serious and uncoordinated changes, meetings have to be organized with the corresponding developers or (especially in larger projects) working group sessions for clarification of the facts and for mutual agreements.

    The actual processing of the interfaces does not take place in submodel CM, but in SD. The objective of CM is the information and agreement of people concerned.


    In particular, where the system development does not take place within an easily comprehensible organizational unit, but several project groups, several separate organizational units, or several contractors and subcontractors are participating, the consistency of the interfaces must be strictly controlled via this activity, and, if necessary, be restored.
