This document describes the basic tenants of Performance Based Product Definition. It
describes the role of specifications, standards and technical data in support of a transition
from current and past practices to a Performance Based Business Environment (PBBE).
Overall, the PBBE has been developed for the aviation business sector to move the
acquisition process more toward models that have been successfully implemented in the
commercial sector. The intent is to provide more flexibility to contractors in defining and
implementing innovative and cost effective solutions to weapon system requirements.

Product definition is an important part of the systems engineering process. Military
systems are complex, costly, and must operate in severe environments. They require a
disciplined process to specify customer performance requirements, allocate and translate
these requirements into specific product designs, and then qualify, produce, and sustain
these products.
