Technical review:

  • It is less formal review
  • It is led by the trained moderator but can also be led by a technical expert
  • It is often performed as a peer review without management  participation

  2. To access the value of technical concepts and alternatives in the product
  3. To have consistency in the use and representation of technical concepts
  4. To inform participants about the technical content of the document
