Each program is evaluated at certain points in its
implementation. The purpose of these reviews is to establish the program's
status, if it has completed its current phase, and to determine if it is ready
to continue into the next phase. As a minimum, Contractor shall support
performing Technical and Project Reviews with JPL by providing the following essential
System Requirement Review (SRR): The System Requirements Review
evaluates the completeness, consistency, and achievability of system,
subsystem, assembly, and program set requirements necessary to fulfill the
Preliminary Design Review (PDR): The Preliminary Design Review evaluates
the readiness of the project, system, subsystem, assembly, or program set to
proceed with detail design.
Critical Design Review (CDR): The Critical Design Review evaluates the
readiness of the project, system, subsystem, assembly, or program set to
proceed with development, including coding, assembly of code, integration, and
Test Readiness Review (TRR): The Test Readiness Review evaluates the
readiness of the product or process to be tested for JPL, plus the readiness of
test procedures, test equipment, and test facilities for use.
System Delivery Review (SDR): The System Delivery Review evaluates the
readiness of the product or process for delivery to JPL or to a launch site,
usually associated with transition to a subsequent phase.
It is recommended that Contractor precede these
reviews with its own internal reviews of project status and the material to be
