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.
It is clear how the system will be defined.
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.
Stakeholders have been identified.
The principles, and constraints, that shape the way-of-working are established.
The team’s mission is clear and the know-how needed to grow the team is in place.
The work has been requested.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Eengineering and/or cultural solution identified; needs established; problems and their causes identified, confirmed that external design roles need the solution; at least one architectural solution proposed.
The benefit of the opportunity has been quantified; the impact of the solution on external project roles is clear; the system's benefit to external project roles is understood; the success criteria are clear; the results are clear and quantified.
The engineering solution is sketched out; the solution is feasible within constraints; the risks are acceptable and manageable; the solution is profitable; the reasons for developing the solution are understood; it is clear that realizing the possibility is viable.
Opportunity realized; solution worthy of implementation; external project roles satisfied.
The solution brings benefits; the return on investment is acceptable.
