The procedure may provide blank spaces for recording of results and narrative comments in order that the Test Readiness Reviews A Test Readiness Review (TRR) is held prior to each major test to ensure the readiness of all ground, flight, and operational systems to support the performance of the test. A review of the detailed status of the facilities, Ground Support Equipment (GSE), test design, software, procedures, and verification requirements is made. The test activities and schedule are outlined and personnel responsibilities are identified. Verification emphasis is directed toward ensuring that all verification requirements that have been identified for the test have been included in the test design and procedures. completed procedure can serve as part of the verification report. The as-run and certified copy of the procedure is maintained as part of the project's archives. 6.6.3 Qualification Verification Qualification stage verification activities begin after completion of development of the flight hardware designs, and include analyses and testing to ensure that the flight or flight-type hardware (and software) will meet functional and performance requirements in anticipated environmental conditions. Qualification tests generally are designed to subject the hardware to worst case loads and environmental stresses. Some of the verifications performed to ensure hardware compliance to worst case loads and environments are vibration/acoustic, pressure limits, leak rates, thermal vacuum, thermal cycling, electromagnetic interference and electromagnetic compatibility (EMI/EMC), high and low voltage limits, and life time/cycling. During this stage, many perform...
