The use of the Ada language has both benefits and drawbacks from the software configuration management (SCM) viewpoint. It is pointed out that the current focus on Ada compiler libraries as the main SCM support mechanism draws attention away from important life-cycle SCM issues. A life-cycle approach to SCM that specifically addresses both the chronic SCM issues encountered in a maintenance and the newer SCM issues raised by the advent of Ada is presented. This approach has been implemented in an automated software engineering framework and is being used for the development, upgrading and maintenance of an Ada software system
