  • production representative system

    A system whose hardware and software defined by system-level critical design review, functional configuration audit, and system verification review, including correction of major deficiencies identified during prior testing. For hardware acquisitions, production-representative articles should be assembled using parts, tools, and manufacturing processes intended for use in full-rate production, utilize intended production versions of software, and all operational logistics systems for use on fielded system should be in place. Manufacturing processes to be used in full-rate production should be adhered to as closely as possible. For software acquisitions, a production-representative system consists of users performing operational tasks with hardware and software intended for deployment, in an operationally realistic computing environment, with representative DoD information network operations and supporting cybersecurity capabilities. All life-cycle system support should be in place.
