Architecture Review   

All technical projects managed by LITS and R&HS must complete an architecture review conducted by the Architecture Review Team (ART) in the project's planning phase before it can be moved into the next phase, Project Execution & Control. A second architecture review should be conducted during the production readiness assessment.

Project Team should submit the following documents and schedule a review meeting with the ART Chair:

  • Architecture Review Checklist (this form)
  • Architecture Diagram(s) of the System

More information on Architecture Review and Architecture Review Team can be found on Architecture Review Team.
