|This page describes the Life Cycle Objectives Review of the System Engineering Life Cycle.|
Links to actual LCO reviews:
The LCO artifacts that constitute the entry criteria are:
|Management|| System Life Cycle Plan
Elaboration Execution Plan
|Requirements|| Use cases (mature)
System and subsystem requirements (candidate)
|Design|| Architecture Specification (candidate)
Technology List (baselined)
UX Design and Workflows (candidate)
The LCO success (i.e., exit) criteria against which the outcome of the Inception phase is evaluated are:
- Are the use cases understood, and do they provide a complete description of the release scope?
- Are the core UX designs and workflows understood and complete?
- Are the candidate requirements understood, and do they cover the critical use cases?
- Are the critical risks identified, and have they been mitigated through exploratory prototypes?
- Are the candidate architectures viable as demonstrated through analysis and prototyping?
- Is the Elaboration Execution Plan credible?
The LCO Review Board provides a written report against the evaluation criteria to the Chief System Engineer. The CI SE Management Team evaluates the report and makes a determination about proceeding to Elaboration.
We also have some additional LCO Review auxiliary material (not normative).
