Verification and Validation

Ensure that designs meet performance requirements and are verified through digital or physical means, progressing from components to assemblies, systems, and products.

 Verification and Validation: Best Practices
  • Test definition and authoring: Author and capture all test cases and plans. Provide a rich and flexible user environment for handling graphics, tables, text, etc., to fully capture the test’s intent.
  • Test lifecycle management and control: Manage and control individual test definitions and specification approval throughout the lifecycle.
  • Test allocation and traceability: Establish traceability between requirements, associated technical specifications/designs and test. Ensure comprehensive test allocation.
  • Test execution and results tracking: Capture test results for a variety of test types (e.g., manual, automated, system, etc.). Deliver test reports and status to expose problems early.
  • Associative simulation and design: Develop associative simulation models based on design models to ensure synchronization and reduce cycle times. Quickly prepare models for analysis regardless of CAD experience level or familiarity with design intent.
  • Digital mock-up: Rapidly visualize and identify design issues in a digital mock-up; track and resolve interferences.
