Systems: Validation and Verification

27 March 2017 - 31 March 2017

Validation (‘have we built the right system?’) offers a summative assessment for testing and acceptance of a system in focus from both a systems engineering and model-based standpoint; this can be contrasted with verification (‘have we built the system right?’) which gives the formative equivalent. When used as part a systems lifecycle via adoption of ISO/IEC 15288 and IEEE 1516, validation and verification processes can reduce significantly on-going project costs and can be responsible for reduction in project over-runs.

This module will provide candidates with knowledge of systems-based validation and verification procedures and tests together with how they can be used for assessment and analysis. A model-based systems approach is adopted and through the use of case studies candidates will gain practical experience of requirements traceability, consideration of how to reduce risk in systems design, and improve robustness of the design solution. This practice will be achieved via independent study as well as candidates being members of a small team. 

A booking of at least 3 weeks prior to the short course start date is required.

This module is a component of the MSc Systems Engineering. 

If you wish, you may take the assessment and accumulate credits towards a postgraduate award.
