Assurance Process: Complex Electronics Life Cycle Activities
assurance process for complex electronics defines activities that are
performed at each life cycle phase. Specific activities are described
in each phase section (e.g. planning or requirements) that are
appropriate for that phase.
phase sub-section (e.g. testing) has at least three pages:
- An overview
page that describes activities for the phase. Standard
items on this page are:
and exit criteria
- A developer
activities page. This page describes the activities that
the engineering side will follow.
- An assurance
activities page. Standard items on this page are:
tailoring guide that maps the activities to the three
classifications (high, moderate, and low).
description of the tasks and analyses for this phase.
- Some phases will have
additional pages that cover issues related to the particular
phase. The pages will be linked to from the overview
sub-section uses a horizontal navigation bar to select the overview, developer, or assurance
phase has a "Print this Section"
navigation link on the left side of the page. Selecting this button will
pop up a new window with the text for that phase (all three pages and
any additional information) in a format appropriate for printing.
Note: The V&V (Verification and
Validation) sub-section is different from the others. V&V is not a
phase, but a collection of activities performed throughout the life
cycle. The V&V section provides an overview of the various V&V
activities, which are then described in more detail in the appropriate
life cycle section.
