Applying IEEE Standard 1012-1998 for Software Verification and Validation 

Course length - 3 days

Verification and validation address two important perspectives of software quality. Verification determines "Was the system built right?" while validation determines, "Was the right system built?" This course shows you how to understand and apply verification and validation in your organization!

IEEE standard 1012-1998 is a standard that provides a framework for performing verification and validation of deliverables on a project. The context of verification and validation (V&V) as conveyed in this standard is that of a life cycle approach. V&V is applied from project concept through maintenance.

This is a practical workshop with many exercises to help you immediately apply the concepts in the IEEE standards. Your instructor will be a certified instructor in the software engineering field.

You will learn the terminology, process, and challenges of standards in the real world. As a result of attending this seminar, you should have a good working knowledge of some of the most important and helpful software engineering standards and what it takes to make them a reality in your organization. From this workshop, you will leave with a practical understanding of IEEE Standard 1012-1998 for Software Verification and Validation and how to tailor and apply it in your projects.
