Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V)



QOSI’s approach to Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) services encompasses software verification and validation, system V&V, financial auditing, quality assurance and risk management. Using a proven, standards-based framework, QOSI provides a low-risk approach, while allowing flexibility to adapt to project requirements and constraints.


Our IV&V approach is hands-on and utilizes a framework based on industry standards from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Software Verification & Validation, which address IV&V activities throughout the software design life cycle (SDLC).


Framework & Standards


QOSI’s approach to IV&V and framework are based on international standards and best practices including:


  • ISO 9001:2008 Quality management systems’ Requirements, ISO/IEC 12207:2008 Software Life Cycle Processes
  • IEEE 1012-2012 System and Software Verification and Validation, IEEE 829-2008 Software Test Documentation, ANSI/IEEE 1008-1987 Software Unit Testing, IEEE 1028-2008 Software Review and Audits
  • CMMI (Capability Maturity Model Integration)
  • ASQ standards
