Get Better Results from Verification & Validation with MBSE

Posted by Novel Engineering on August 23, 2017

Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is a powerful tool for helping engineers to maximize quality and efficiency in systems engineering. One of the reasons that MBSE is so effective is because of how it incorporates Verification and Validation into each stage of the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Let’s explore how MBSE supports verification and validation in more detail.

3 Telltale Signs You Should Invest in Independent Verification and Validation

Posted by Novel Engineering on April 18, 2017

When developing any new product or system, engineers need to check and make sure they are on the right track. It seems like a pretty basic concept, but across all industries, so many projects go over budget and so many subpar products go to market when they shouldn’t because the project manager failed to incorporate proper verification and validation.

The Importance of IV&V on Space Operations

Posted by Novel Engineering on November 22, 2016

Sending something into space and keeping it on track is no easy feat. There's very little room for error in space operations and even a minor issue can lead to much bigger problems down the line. Every piece of hardware and every line of software must be extensively checked and rechecked in order to ensure a successful space operation, and experts agree that IV&V (independent verification and validation) is a key part of this process.
