126.96.36.199 Program Review
In the Government program reviews, overall program progress is
reviewed and compared with the Computer Program Development Plan. Also, a
technical review of the software is performed by software specialists from
Government laboratories or specialists from some other advisory organization.
These reviews are documented with action items assigned to the Government or
contractor for resolution by specified dates.
Typical formal reviews include: the systems requirements review
(SRR), the system design review (SDR), the preliminary design review (PDR),
and the critical design review (CDR). The SRR is
conducted after a significant portion of the system functional requirements
have been established, and is used to evaluate responsiveness to the statement
of work and the interpretation of the system requirements. The SDR is
conducted prior to the beginning of preliminary design, and is used to review
system documentation and assess the degree of accomplishment of the
engineering management activities.
