Information on IV&V
Verification and validation are an important part of a systems
engineering process. Because the designers associated with the process may
be too close to be able to take an objective
view of the process, an independent party is often invited
to perform IV&V . Independent
verification and validation can also be used in
a contractual situation to allow the acquirer to have increased
confidence in the developer's progress through an independent verification and
validation of the design by a third party.
