Phase B: Preliminary Design and Technology Completion

During the Preliminary Design and Technology Completion Phase, the project team refines its requirements and the Project Plan. These activities are focused towards a final implementation plan, including contractor selection and long-lead procurement. A list of common project documentation for this phase is provided below. .

Common Preliminary Design and Technology Completion activities:

  • Begin to implement the preliminary Project Plan
  • Develop the subsystem and lower-level technical requirements leading to the PDR baseline.
  • Refine the Concept of Operations.
  • Refine the Configuration Management Plan.
  • Continue to monitor any risk drivers (and proposed mitigation plans for each risk).
  • Refine the list of descope options.
  • Prior to the project independent life-cycle reviews for this phase, conduct internal reviews as defined by the project’s planned software assurance activities.
  • Plan, prepare for, and support the project independent life-cycle reviews for this phase in accordance with NPR 7123.1, Center practices, and the requirements of this document.
  • See Page TBD for a list of common Project Documentation assets and their required maturity by phase.
