Validate that system requirements meet mission

Present refined cost, schedule, and personnel
resource estimates. Criteria for Successful Completion —The following items compose a checklist to aid in determining
readiness of MDR product preparation:
• Do the defined system requirements meet the
mission objectives expressed at the start of the
Are the system-level requirements complete,
consistent, and verifiable? Have preliminary
allocations been made to lower levels?
Have the requirements trades converged on an
optimal set of system requirements? Do the
trades address program/project cost and
schedule constraints as wel1 as mission
technical needs? Do the trades cover a broad
spectrum of options? Have the trades identified
for this set of activities been completed? Have
the remaining trades been identified to select
the final system design?
Are the upper levels of the system PBS
Are the decisions made as a result of the trades
established at the MCR?
Has an optimal final design converged to a few
Have technology risks been identified and have
mitigation plans been developed? Results of Review —A successful MDR
supports the decision to further develop the system
architecture/design and any technology needed to
accomplish the mission. The results reinforce the
mission's merit and provide a basis for the system
System Definition Review.
Purpose —The System Definition Review
architecture/design and the flowdown to all functional
elements of the system.
Timing —Near the completion of the system
definition stage. It represents the culmination of efforts
in system requirements analysis and allocation.
Objectives—The objectives of the SDR are to: • •
• Demonstrate that the architecture/design is
acceptable. that requirements allocation is...
