By now, you must be familiar with the change project processes and how to use it. This blog post discusses a change project life cycle in brief. In simple words, a change project process starts with its creation and ends with its closure. In between this life span, a change project goes through various phases. The picture below explains these various phases in an easy to understand flowchart.
From the above picture, it is clear that a change project can reside in a productive system for its whole life span without getting moved to a test system. This is true in case of a local change project. However, in case of a remote change project, the change project has few phases in a productive system and few phases in a test system.
What all are possible in different phases of a change project is explained in other pages of this blog series therefore I do not find a need to repeat here. Apart from this, many of your clarifications might get answered in the FAQ page.
