Independent Verification & Validation

We don't just verify that your team is qualified, but that they are validated.

To help determine whether the software and system will satisfy its intended use and user needs “Are you building the right system?” and whether development products conform to the requirements “Are you building the system right?”, TrustedQA uses established standardized Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) assessment processes, methods and procedures.

TrustedQA IV&V processes provide an objective assessment of software products and processes throughout the software life cycle in an environment organizationally free from the influence, guidance and control of the development effort.

Our IV&V methodology is consistent with the latest systems engineering and process improvement models, and is derived from concepts and standards such as the IEEE Std 1012 – 2004 Standard for Software Verification and Validation, and the process maturity framework developed by the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute’s Software Capability Maturity Model Integration (SEI CMMI). IV&V services are performed in parallel with the software development effort.


The Benefits of our IV&V services include:
