Abstract: Software configuration management (SCM) is one of the areas closely related to achieving and maintaining quality of software in a broader sense. Our approach to the problem of building a software system configuration is based on an assumption that explicit repesentation of important properties of software components can be utilized for both improving the process of building the configuration, and also in a certain sense, for improving the configuration (the product) itself, i.e. its quality. Our goal is to devise a method for building software system configuration from the system's model and requirements. We describe the proposed way of modelling software systems, its components and configuration requirement. We present a new method for building configurations and report on experiments and their evaluation.
