MIL STD- Specification Practices

Keywords MIL STD specification practices

3. Requirements
3.1 Introduction
Specifications prepared in accordance with this standard are intended for use in design and procurement of configuration items and for services required for program-peculiar application.

3.1.1 Configuration identification
Current configuration identification is established by baseline configuration identification documents and all effected changes. Configuration identification documents include all those necessary to provide a full technical description of the characteristics of the configuration item that require control at the time that the baseline is established (see 6.2). Functional Configuration Identification (FCI)
Function configuration identification (functional baseline and approved changes) will normally include Type A specification or a Type B specification supplemented by other specification types as necessary to specify: (1) all essential system functional characteristics; (2) necessary interface characteristics; (3) specific designation of the functional characteristics of key configuration items; and (4) all of the tests required to demonstrate achievement of each specified characteristic (see 6.2).
