Design Review Procedures
System Requirements Review (SRR). The purpose of the SRR is to review the system requirements specification document, to ensure the documented requirements reflect the current knowledge of the customer and market requirements, to identify requirements that may not be consistent with product development constraints, and to put the requirements document under version control to serve as a stable baseline for continued new product development.
Preliminary Design Review (PDR). The purpose of the PDR is to review the conceptual design to ensure that the planned technical approach will meet the requirements.
Critical Design Review (CDR). The purpose of the CDR is to review the detailed design to ensure that the design implementation has met the requirements.
Test Readiness Review (TRR). The purpose of the TRR is to review preparations and readiness for testing of software configuration items, including adequate version identification of software and test procedures.
Production Readiness Review (PRR). The purpose of the PRR is to ensure that the design is completely and accurately documented and ready for formal release to manufacturing.
