Technical Assessment Process


Technical Assessment Process

The Technical Assessment Process is the method to provide a fact-based understanding of the current level of product knowledge, technical maturity, program status, and technical risk by comparing assessment results against defined criteria. These assessment results enable a better understanding of the health and maturity of the program, giving the program office a sound technical basis upon which to make program decisions. This sub-topical area contains information on the Technical Assessment Process found in Section 4.1.3 of the Systems Engineering Guidebook.
