Roles and Activities > Manager Role Set > Project Reviewer > Iteration Evaluation Criteria Review
The Iteration Evaluation Criteria Review is a formal review of the tests and reviews that will be used to demonstrate to the customer that the objectives for an iteration have been met. This is an important review because it ensures that the project team and customer have consistent expectations for how success in the work of the iteration will be measured.
The Iteration Evaluation Review meeting is a meeting between a customer representative and the project's management team (the project manager, plus the team leads for the various functional areas of the project team). Representative(s) of the Project Review Authority may also be involved.
Once the attendees of the meeting have been identified, set a date/time for the meeting to take place. It is important that you provide sufficient lead time to allow the participants to review the materials that will be used as the basis for the approval decision.
Prior to the meeting, distribute the review materials to the reviewers. Make sure these materials are sent out sufficiently in advance of the meeting to allow the reviewers adequate time to review them. A minimum set of artifacts that should be presented for review is:
During the meeting, the reviewers assess the proposed program of tests and reviews defined in the Test Plan that will be used to determine if the iteration's objectives have been met. During the meeting, make sure that:
At the end of the meeting, the reviewers should make their approval decision. The result can be one of the following:
If the criteria are rejected, the project team should address the identified deficiencies and re-submit revised iteration evaluation criteria for a follow-up review.
At the end of the meeting, a Review Record is completed capturing any
important discussions or action items, and recording the result of the Iteration
Evaluation Criteria Review. If the result was "criteria rejected" a
follow-up Iteration Evaluation Criteria Review Meeting should be scheduled for a
Rational Unified Process
