Mr. David D Lyon founded the Raven Publishing Company in 1996. He had recently written a new book, 'Practical CM: Best Configuration Management Practices for the 21st Century, which was being published by Butterworth Heinemann, a member of the Reed Elsevier publishing group.
The purpose of this book was to provide detailed descriptions of the latest best practices for the Configuration Management discipline and to delineate specific procedures for implementing these best practices via automated Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems. Much of Mr. Lyons thirty- nine (39) years as an engineer in industry was dedicated to this area of interest. He had been responsible for the planning, implementation and integration of one of the first successful PLM systems in a major corporation in the United States.
The book was well received both domestically and internationally. Sales were impressive. However, things were changing fast in the technological areas which drove the designs of automated PLM systems and their interfaces with hardware and software design tools. The current publishers would not permit updates to the book on a yearly basis, so Mr. Lyon established the Raven Publishing Company in order to be able to provide yearly updates to this book and those to follow and to continue his research into this field.
This endeavor worked out well for both Mr. Lyon and his readers, since their feedback culminated in a spiral bound text, easy to read, with pages that lie flat for reference and later the publication of paperback and hard cover versions. It also provided the capability for Mr. Lyon to incorporate numerous timely updates and expansion of information as it became available. The current version of this book, 'Practical CM III: Best Configuration Management Practices for the 21st Century', is being used in several colleges as the required text for courses on Configuration Management in the United States and Europe.
Mr. Lyon is dedicated to assuring the availablilty of Configuration Management information and 'best practice' methodology to current and future generations of Configuration Management and Project/Program Management personnel.
