 Given in our introduction the other key business driver is configuration, how much user manipulation can we safely introduce without increasing the potential of breaking a schedule?

Different types of configuration are user and system configuration.

User configuration must be done by an authorised and appropriate user and will require approval in the same manner of other high-impact static data. Such configuration should be restricted to areas where the impact of change is easily identifiable, and is restricted to a specific area.

System configuration could range from maintenance via a GUI by a system administrator (at one extreme) to rapid turnaround of code by a programmer (at the other extreme). These areas are where the impact of change is less certain and therefore require a more robust level of testing and facility for rollback
