Basic Process Model
Each phase of a development life cycle can be represented
as a process having iterative and recursive analysis, formulation and synthesis
loops to produce and verify the phase output products.
Processes can be defined by activities and tasks tracked
by the control functions such as Configuration, Product evaluation, test,
FIGURE 1. Basic Process Model.
This basic process model can be applied to any phase
of the system life cycle and the supporting technical specialist life cycles,
e.g., software, hardware, safety, etc.
Inputs to the process shall include the required information
to sustain the technical effort together with the start of a new phase
of technical effort.
Each phase of the system and its supporting specialty programs
shall establish a life cycle consisting of a series of phases. Each phase
shall define its tasks, activities, products, support and control operations
in their respective plans and procedures documentation.
Phase outputs shall comprise of:
Documentation and data produced;
Traceability of decisions, solutions, etc.
