Do the verification results satisfy functional and performance requirements? Do the verification, design, and specification documentation correlate? Results of Review —As a result of a successful DCR, the end item design is approved for production. All open issues should be resolved with closure actions and schedules. Functional and Physical Configuration Audits. The Physical Configuration Audit (also known as a configuration inspection) verifies that the physical configuration of the product corresponds to the "build-to" (or ''code-to") documentation previously approved at the CDR. The Functional Configuration Audit verifies that the acceptance test results are consistent with the test requirements previously approved at the PDR and CDR. It ensures that the test results indicate performance requirements were met, and test plans and procedures were executed correctly. It should also document differences between the test unit and production unit, including any waivers. 4.9 Status Reporting and Assessment An important part of systems engineering planning is determining what is needed in time, resources, and people to realize the system that meets the desired goals and objectives. Planning functions, such as WBS preparation, NASA Systems Engineering Handbook Management Issues in Systems Engineering scheduling, and fiscal resource requirements planning, were discussed in Sections 4.3 through 4.5. Project management, however, does not end with planning; project managers need visibility into the progress of those plans in order to exercise proper management control. This is the purpose of the status reporting and assessing processes. Status reporting is the process of determining where the project stands in dimensions of interest such as cost, schedule, and technical performance.
