System Functional Review

System Functional Review

The System Functional Review is held to evaluate whether the functional baseline satisfies the end-user requirements and capability needs and whether functional requirements and verification methods support achievement of performance requirements. At completion of the SFR, the functional baseline is normally taken under configuration control. An SFR is mandatory per DoDI 5000.88, Section 3.5.a. For more information on System Functional Reviews, see the Systems Engineering Guidebook, Seciton 3.33
