The Objectives of Version Management
Version management is a system that aims at eliciting all modifications to files made during the course of a project. Version management allows for the management of all possible file types auch as documents (e.g. requirements specifications), requirements, change requests or code. Files and modifications to them are stored including information about the editor, the changes made to the file and the modification date. Different versions of a file can be compared to each other, and it is also possible to revert back to prior version of files. The main goals of version management are coordinated file access, archiving, logging of changes as well as retrieval of prior file versions.
