Information on Functional Baseline
The Functional Baseline is the product of Conceptual
Design and represents a functional architecture of the system. That
is, the functional architecture is a complete description of the
functionality required by the system (normally grouped in functional groupings).
The Functional Baseline is very important because it
represents the end point of the transition from the users'
world into the systems engineering world. The principal component of
the Functional Baseline is the Functional Specification, which
contains functional, performance and verification requirements as well as descriptions
of interoperability requirements, interfaces, and design constraints for the system.
