Thanks for the reply Andrew ! I'm sorry that I asked such a stupid question. 
Seems like I am unaware of the "industrial terms" for such actions. Though I 
remember I was present at PSBA when we brought up 2368 two weeks before the 
July launch.

First you take a large enough helium balloon....

"Bringing the board up" really just means taking it from "just built" to
fully up and running. It usually means:

- Getting the board
- Getting the toolchain working
- Powering up the board for the first time
- Trying a "hello world" program (e.g., blinky light), or depending on
the board, installing an OS on the board.
- Trying each part of the circuit out to make sure it works

.. and then at that point, you transition from "bringing the board up"
to what you're really supposed to do - working on the application for
that board..
