Purpose: The purpose of the Critical Design Review (CDR) is to assess the detailed design to ensure the design meets specifications defined in the PDR and the proposal and is ready for production and testing.
Goal: The CDR is an opportunity for the Review Committee to provide teams with perspective-based feedback on their system and discuss risk and risk mitigation with the review committee prior to starting production and testing.
Attendance: All teams shall take part in the Critical Design Review though not all team members have to be present. Team members who are taking part in the CDR should be well versed in the project and able to answer review committee questions.
Pre-reviews: Pre-reviews with the ASURE team can be requested prior to February 13, 2018. It is advised not to wait until the last minute to schedule a pre-review.

Critical Design Review Presentation Structure:
Presentations should be clear and concise. Teams will only have fifteen minutes to present their materials followed by a ten-minute question-and-answer period. The CDR should provide evidence- based information (either metrics, estimates, testing, or similar methods) to demonstrate that the system meets the performance goals and capabilities outlined in the proposal and PDR.
There is no set format or template for the briefing but the following topics are recommended:
System overview, potential topics include (note, team’s key topics should be addressed):
Status of the Design, potential topics include (note, team’s key topics should be addressed):
Production and Test Plans, potential topics include (note, team’s key topics should be addressed):
Other topics, other things you want to inform the review committee with respect to your design: Presentation Considerations.
Additional topics should enhance one of the three areas above:
Scheduling: Teams are responsible for scheduling the specific time for their review. The scheduling portal will be open and active on the January 29, 2018. The following schedule indicates the available briefing time slots. Scheduling is on a first-come, first-select basis.
