Read Frequently Asked Questions

Validation and Verification training address some common sense approach to this dilemma; such as having V&V plans and processes that clearly define the completion criteria for a product or process step.

In 2001 Software bugs cost the US economy $59.5 billion annually. About a third of the losses ($22.2 billion could have been avoided with a good V&V program. ( 25 June 2002). To achieve a good V&V program an organization must address the major problems that creep into the V&V process, and reach a balance between not doing any V&V and testing for 25 years. The presentation will address some common sense approach to this dilemma; such as having V&V plans and processes that clearly define the completion criteria for a product or process step; and to match the V&V process to the product and risk. Instead of cast of thousands for a review maybe only one qualified person can perform this process.

Areas Covered in the Session:
  • Definition of V&V and its process steps
  • The benefits of having V&V personnel a part of all life cycle phases, especially product development.
  • Why the V&V strategy must quantify the role that they have in meeting:
    • Customer requirements
    • Company objectives
    • Risk abatement plan for the project
  • How to align the V&V process within the company organization.
