What is Software IV&V

  • IV&V stands for independent verification & validation

  • IV&V is the process of:

    • verifying that the output of each software phase meets its requirements, and

    • validating that the software, at the end of the development effort, meets the overall project objectives

Strategic Review

  • Strategic reviews: Review project plans and schedules (ie, development, test, management) to ensure that they are effective and are being followed.

Requirements tracebility matrix

  • Requirements tracing: Review requirements coverage to ensure that contractual requirements are being carried through to implementation and testing.

  • Document and process reviews: Review technical documentation to ensure completeness and appropriateness of design and test documentation and conformance with applicable standards.


  • Risk management: Review project processes and artefacts to identify risks and ensure that effective risk management is occurring.

  • Acquisition assistance: Develop acquisition risk management plans, provide subject matter expertise in design, development and test product evaluations, review test readiness data, and develop and run independent product tests.
