(Last Modified:27-Mar-2014)


Technical Reviews form the backbone of a robust Technical Assessment Process and are one of the foundation elements of an effective Systems Engineering Plan. This module provides a systematic process for employing Technical Reviews to assess design maturity, technical risk, development status and programmatic risk for acquisition programs. The module also presents essential, practical guidelines on the effective use of Technical Reviews as part of the DoD acquisition life cycle and also provides access to detailed, tailorable checklists for individual Technical Reviews that can be used to support their conduct. These Technical Review guidelines are based on best engineering practices as well as the Defense Acquisition Guidebook, Chapter 4.
