Production Readiness Review

Production Readiness Review

The Production Readiness Review, mandatory per DoDI 5000.88, Section 3.5.a., determines whether the system design is ready for production, and whether the developer has accomplished adequate production planning for entering Low-Rate Initial Production and Full-Rate Production. Production readiness increases over time with incremental assessments at various points in the program life cycle.  For more information on Production Readiness Reviews, see the Systems Engineering Guidebook, Seciont 3.7.
