System Realization
Raw material
The materials for the realization of the system are available and allow the creation of system parts with the desired characteristics; the equipment for processing materials into parts is available; the production and logistics schedule for system parts is coordinated; work on the production of system parts is possible.
2
System Description
Conceived
It is clear how the system will be defined.
3
Opportunity
Identified
An idea has been found; at least one project role has been found that is willing to make an investment in understanding the opportunity; other project roles have been identified.
4
Stakeholders
Recognized
Stakeholders have been identified.
5
Method
Principles Established

8
System Realization
Parts
Parts of the system realization have been created and/or purchased and verified; the schedule for integration/assembly/installation/construction from parts has been agreed; work on integration/assembly/installation/construction is possible.
9
System Realization
Demonstrable
The system realization can be tried out in individual functions, and key features can be measured; key features can be demonstrated to external project roles; critical interfaces of the system have been demonstrated; the system is ready for testing; the required external project roles agree that the system should be tested.
10
System Realization
Ready
Functionality tested; defect levels for external design roles are acceptable; installation and other user and operator description available; external design role representatives/performers are satisfied with the system; composition of the transferable system is known; external design role representatives/performers are ready to operate the system; operational support is in place.
11
System Realization
Operational
Available to external project roles for operation in an operational environment; there is at least one example of a working system; maintained at an agreed level of service.
12
System Realization
Retired
The system realization has been replaced or discontinued in use; the system is no longer supported; no "official" external project roles that are still using the system; revisions/modifications to the system will no longer be made; all material components of the system are either reused or appropriately destroyed.
