In Configuration Management of Integrity, it is impossible to relate a Change Package to an Item (like a defect for example) when the Change Package is already created. It should be possible due to the fact that sometimes, Defects can be created after the Change Package is created. The workaround proposed by the support that is to create a new Change Package and move the entries is not a powerful way of work and time consuming.
In software developement process (for automotive or aircraft), Defects are often created after the Change Packages are created and it is very important to have the functionnality to relate a defect with an already created Change Package :
- to keep the traceability between source code files and defects
- to keep a agile way of work due to the fact that the amount of defects and Change Packages is very important
