Recommending the baseline

Recommend baselines is shown as a workflow of the project integrator. It follows Make baselines and is the last item in the workflow.

As work on your project progresses and the quality and stability of the components improve, change the baseline promotion level attribute to reflect important milestones (see the following figure).
Figure 1. Promoting baselines

Four stacked cubes that represent baselines are shown with an ascending arrow. From the bottom, BL1 is Integration tested, BL2 is System tested, BL6 is Acceptance tested, and BL8 is Production.

The promotion level attribute typically indicates a level of testing. For example, the figure shows the evolution of baselines through three levels of testing; the BL8 baseline is ready for production.
