Component-based configuration management is an important supporting activity of the software development management and software quality control. Based on the research of CMMI and IEEE criterion, this paper presents the 3C (control, configuration, component) model which based on the component-based and layered architecture. As a sub-model of software quality management and software process model (Mingzhi Mao and Xiaonan Luo, 2004), it was proved to be realizable and usable. Compared to other configuration model, the 3C model is structurally layered and is to move from file-based CM schemes to a component-based scheme, and this feature makes it more practicable and repeatable. The paper presents the 3C model and its realization.
