Key takeaways

  1. A released item is considered to be in a finished state. A released item is read-only and cannot be edited.
  2. Item maturity is an additional status on a released item that specifies the type of release the item is at and helps other stakeholders to identify items at a specific release maturity level that they are interested in.
  3. The major and minor revision levels indicate what type of revision has been made to the item. Major revisions are typically design changes affecting the physical component, while minor revisions are typically administrative changes to documentation or attributes.
  4. A Change request, governed by a workflow, is the object used to release an item and set its item maturity level, if required.
