What is IV&V Testing?

Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) is a process in the development cycle, aimed at ensuring that a system or application not only meets its user requirements but is also effective and reliable. This meticulous process aids in the early detection of potential defects or issues, providing an opportunity for timely corrections prior to deployment.

TestPros IV&V Testing Approach

TestPros’ IV&V testing approach delivers a test strategy based on the risk profile of each tested system, providing objective information to: 

We ground our approach in the IEEE std 1012-2016 standards, ensuring a comprehensive coverage of System, Software and Hardware Verification and Validation.

Furthermore, we leverage project management methodologies endorsed by the Project Management Institute (PMI PMBOK), ITIL2017 for IT Service Management (ITSM), and CMMI L3-aligned procedures to establish a robust foundation of best practices that are both repeatable and reliable.

A nuanced application of varied testing types forms the backbone of our approach, incorporating consistent testing frameworks, full SDLC support, and a risk-based testing strategy. This ensures not just the system meets the necessary criteria, but also that the final product stands up to the highest standards of product quality.

IV&V Testing Benefits and Types

Having supported government and commercial clients for over 30 years, our approach addresses both legacy waterfall SDLCs, current state-of-the-art Agile methods using Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) and DevSecOps approaches, and platforms ranging from mainframes to on-demand highly scalable cloud-based architectures. 

Our proven approach to testing is designed to support all required IV&V testing types, highly leveraging automated testing and a refined User Acceptance Testing (UAT) approach.

  • System Testing: Ensuring the entire system functions in accordance to the specified requirements.
  • Functional Testing: Verifying that each function of the software operates in conformance with the requirement specification.
  • Quality Assurance Testing: A holistic approach ensuring that the product meets the required standard of quality prior to release.

Test Witness and Ensuring Product Quality

Test Witnessing plays a pivotal role in ensuring the integrity of the testing process. TestPros steps in to meticulously observe and validate the testing conducted by third-party groups or developers, ensuring that every phase of the system testing is executed flawlessly. This due diligence ensures that once operational, the system will seamlessly integrate with and fulfill the business needs of the organization.

Our commitment to quality assurance reflects in our attention to detail and adherence to established IV&V processes, ensuring that the final product is not just functional but also of impeccable quality.
