CFI Project Officer tasks Project Manager to conduct Start Up Meeting with key stakeholders to outline required tasks to develop Functional Design Brief (FDB).
Note: FDB Template has been removed because it is no longer up to date and is of limited suitability for Defence projects in its current form. Defence expects that Consultants developing Design Briefs on its behalf would apply professional skills and expertise necessary to advise the Designer on the Defence requirements and provide sufficient information to enable design outputs to be verified against them. Defence specific requirements to be included in the FDB are to be developed and identified in consultation with the Defence Project Director and all relevant Defence stakeholders. Defence Standard Engineering Inclusions are provided to identify Electrical, Mechanical, Fire Engineering and Aircraft Pavement requirement. Some of the key Defence requirements contained in DEQMS are referenced below.
Where precise definition of the Defence requirements and expectations is not possible, the Consultant is to define requirements to progressively develop these throughout the various stages of the design process. In this case it is important that the Designer confirms design proposals with the Defence at appropriate stages. This needs to be documented adequately in the Designer’s Design Plan (refer AS/NZS 3905.12: 1999 for further guidance).
Defence Requirements are:
The Project Officer monitors progress of the development of the Design Brief (Functional or Performance Based) prepared by the Project Manager.
Project Manager is to facilitate stakeholder participation in the development of the FDB through:
Project Officer receives draft Functional Design Brief, which incorporates initial stakeholder considerations, from the Project Manager for consideration and review by Defence internal stakeholders.
Project Officer reviews the draft Functional Design Brief with relevant stakeholders, including the LEO, DEEP, DEEERMS, client/sponsor and other key stakeholders.
User Requirements & Cost
Engineering and Maintenance Policy Requirements
CFI Project Officer notes final version Functional Design Brief received from Project Manager, which triggers the commencement of Design Development Phases.
