Independent Verification & Validation and Software Assurance (IV&V)

CSE offers independent verification and validation services so you can obtain crucial information in an environment organizationally free from the influence, guidance and control of the development effort.

Independent verification and validation answers two basic questions: are you building the system right, and are you building the right system?

CSE’s methodology has redefined IV&V in much the same way that advances in life-cycle processes have improved and standardized software and system engineering. The current CSE IV&V methodology derived from concepts and standards such as the process maturity framework developed by the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute’s Software Capability Maturity Model Integration (SEI CMMI), the CSE SELC (our consistent, company-wide approach to planning, designing, developing, and delivering solutions, products and services to our customers), and IEEE Std 1012 – 2004 IEEE Standard for Software Verification and Validation.

The tasks that we perform for our customers include:

  • Criticality Analysis
  • Test Planning, Execution and Reporting
