About the course

The verification and validation process helps you ensure that your product, service, or system meets the intended requirements and specifications. You can assess and validate solutions to deliver the promised outcomes to your customer. You will learn the tasks, techniques, and processes for defining and classifying requirements, assessing proposed solutions, and performing solution validation. You will share your own experiences and participate in group exercises to learn best practices and apply new skills for verification and validation.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the structure of the Vee Model and its applicability to effective integration
  • Describe how IV&V help ensure project success
  • Describe the fundamentals and best practices for solution assessment and validation
  • Capture and document transitional requirements through effective modeling techniques
  • Finalize all requirements and prepare for solution assessment and validation
  • Determine how closely the proposed solution meets stakeholder and solution requirements
  • Describe variations of testing (qualification, life, accelerated, reliabilitity, maintainability, and operability
  • Determine whether the organization can make effective use of the solution
  • Achieve customer acceptance of the constructed solution
