It is basically a version control tool. Programs can be checked in and out for to/from production. It lets you have all your production modules tracked and indexed.

Changeman uses the strategy of packages which will include all the information which has to be move into the production environment. Change man does this job by managing movement of change package information in five distinct environments

1) Development The development environment is used for application program development. The development environment may or may not exists under the control of changeman
2) Staging The staging environment is a transition environment, where all the testing and editing of the work libraries are initiated
3) Baseline The baseline environment is a copy of the current production libraries which are managed by changeman. These libraries are used in the case of application testing
4) Production The production environment is a set of libraries where the production version of application resides
5) Backup The backup environment consists of the libraries which contains the previous versions of production software

Steps to follow while working with the changeman tool

1. Creating a package

2. Checkout the programs from production environment

3. Stage programs from personal develpment library or from other change man package

4. Compilation of program in change man environment

5. Querying for the programs present in packages

6. Querying for package information

7. Changing Install date for the packages

8. Freezing / Unfreezing the package

9. Promote or demote the package

10. Approve or reject the package
