Preliminary Design Review



The Preliminary Design Review (PDR) is the second of three design reviews. The time between CoDR and PDR should be used to start initial research and further feasibility studies on the architectures presented at CoDR. By PDR, you should be able to justify the architecture that will solve the design problem. It is essential that after PDR there is a clear understanding of the final system architecture as well as its feasibility. Additionally, it should be clearly demonstrated that all project and system level requirements can be met by this architecture. PDR is the last sign off before modeling and mock up begin. Be sure that you leave "off-ramps" in your design in case the scope ends up being larger than what can be accomplished in the time frame allotted. Again, all design reviews are due per the schedule and can be submitted directly to Shawn Carroll.
