The development project preparation stage specifies the results received at the previous stage in order to prepare the technical specification for design of the technical system - embedded, electronics, digital device, others.
Input data - technical requirements, commercial and technical offer prepared at the estimation stage, agreement. Technical and commercial offer must contain a specific and unambiguous plan of works performed at this stage and a budget for the purchase of necessary components, as well as evaluation kits to produce prototype with the aim of eliminating uncertainties, confirming assumptions and hypotheses, specifying technical characteristics and requirements set out within estimation stage.
Preparation state standard scope of works:
Output results - technical specification with the specified hardware architecture and software platform of the technical system, including specified technical characteristics, prototypes testing methodic, technical characteristics measuring methodic, technical characteristics testing procedure for compliance with the requirements, scope of works, acceptance procedure, budget for works, budget for the evaluation kits and prototypes, draft contract for the execution of engineering works with the payment plan and the design stages closure plan.
Technical specification includes:
The acceptance-delivery procedure is formalized in the form of an annex to the technical specification and contains:
The calendar plan is made in the form of an annex to the technical specification and contains:
The budget is made in the form of an annex to the technical specification and contains:
Note - final costs are determined after the prototype production, bring-up and testing.
Requirements for input data and results at the development preparation stage are to be correct, reliable, consistent, unambiguous and measurable.
