B.2 CREATING THE VVT-MP

The VVT-MP generation process is presented in Figure B.1 and Table B.1.

TABLE B.1 Process of Creating VVT-MP

StageActivity
1Study the project characteristics and the critical parameters that must be verified and validated.
2Define the VVT strategy for each phase of the system lifecycle. Such definition determines the overall set of VVT activities and the level of performance (0.0 through 1.0) for each activity. This VVT performance level shall be captured in appropriate tables. Choosing the specific VVT strategy must be based on the characteristics of the project and must be translated into specific VVT activities. Such activities would be carried out either by VVT personnel organically attached to the VVT team or by other engineers and professionals who are doing a certain level of VVT activity as part of their regular assignments (e.g., software engineers often perform their own unit testing).
3Filling up “planning VVT activity” forms for each VVT activity that will be performed at some level. These forms shall define all the relevant parameters associated with the performance of the specific VVT activity. However, during earlier stage of the VVT-MP, only the more rudimentary and available information about the testing should be filled in, such as the system and subsystem involved, the VVT activity name and objective and the responsible person.
4Also, the above forms should include more complete information, including testing method and location of testing, ...
