Notes and Changes:
Initial release (-v1) notes:
1) Based on the aLIGO Project development guidelines document, M050220-v2, but with the following changes:
a) dropped separate review of prototype tests (combined with FDR)
b) dropped separate review of first article tests (combined with IRR)
c) changed the "pre-ship review" to an "installation readiness review"
d) put FMEA back into the review content
e) changed organizational names & responsibilities to reflect the Ops organization
f) added the requirement to include a cross-reference table to the checklist for each design review document
g) for all 3 major reviews, added a requirement to review & update existing interface documentation

Suggestion for future consideration: compare and normalize the design review content with INCOSE and/or NASA Systems Engineering guidance.
