Information on Allocated Baseline
The Allocated Baseline is the product of the
Preliminary Design stage of the system lifecycle. The Allocated Baseline has a subsystem-level focus and provides a physical
architecture for the system at the subsystem level. The Allocated
Baseline is called "allocated" because the subsystem functionality
that flows from the system-level Functional Baseline is now allocated
to physical subsystems. The physical subsystems in the Allocated Baseline are called Configuration Items. The principal component of
the Allocated Baseline are Development Specifications, which normally
exist for each Configuration Item. Development Specifications are detailed descriptions
of the functionality of the configuration item, at the subsystem
level, grouped physically.
The Allocated Baseline describes the Physical
Architecture of the system.
