Contractor shall support the Preliminary Design
Review (PDR) by providing JPL with approved copies of Contractor's Software
Design Document showing the Top Level Design of the proposed software and draft
details of the internal interfaces, and the Software Test Plan (STP). Contractor's
Software Quality Assurance (SQA) shall approve these documents before they are
submitted to JPL. JPL shall receive them at least 60 days before the PDR.
The STP shall describe the type of tests (i.e.,
nominal/extreme/out of range values, timing, etc.) required to verify the
operation of the software. The description shall include a description of the
hardware and software environment in which the various levels of tests shall be
performed, the estimated duration of the tests, the assets in the form of
software, hardware, and workforce required to be available to perform the
tests. A planned schedule shall be provided showing the time-phased use of test
assets and their sufficiency to handle development, testing and corrective
action of the software during development.
Open action items from the SRR shall be resolved,
or plans for resolving them will be submitted. A current estimate of Flight
Software Margins shall be submitted per QC88-S.
Additionally, Contractor shall submit any
previously approved and submitted documents that have changed to Contractor's
SQA approval office indicated on the documents. JPL shall receive these
re-submitted documents at least 30 days before PDR.
