Complex Operational and Organizational Problems

Topic: Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V)

Dr. Dean S. Hartley III

Verification is the process of discovering the degree of success in implementing a conceptual model into computer code.  Validation is the process of discovering the nature and extent of the correspondence between the computer results and the real world.  Independent verification and validation (IV&V) is normally a component of V&V and consists of an outside agent performing some verification and validation.
