Full course description

Topic Description: System Integration, Verification, and Validation (IV&V) Basics

As system elements are aggregated into a realized system, systems integration assembles the system elements, systems verification confirms that the integrated entity satisfies the requirements for that entity, and system validation confirms that the integrated entity satisfies the needs for that entity.  In this micro-course, fundamental concepts for system integration, verification, and validation are presented and activities for each are defined.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this micro-course, students will be able to:

  • Identify definitions and concepts for systems integration, verification, and validation
  • Identify opportunities for early verification and validation in the system lifecycle
  • Relate verification to requirements
  • Relate validation to needs
  • Identify system integration, verification, and validation activities

This micro-course addresses the following INCOSE learning objectives:

Know the aspects of implementation and integration  

Define the importance of verification in the system process 

Define the importance of validation to the stakeholders 

Define the importance of providing evidence of implementation compliance
