Guidelines for Analysis and Design Approval
- As Analysis and Design Specification contains the output of two phases- Requirements analysis and Design, So, customer review and approval may be performed more than one time, first after completion of requirements and finally for design part as required. Usually, customers are not interested in review and approval of Design, in such a case, Design approval is not required but if it is explicitly required by the customer, Analysis and Design Spec. must be sent for review and approval.
- Analysis and Design Specification should also be published to the project team every time it is approved or baselined due to authorized changes.
- Analysis and Design Specification may be published to the project team by sending an email about availability of approved specification in the project repository and link of its path in Visual Safe Source
