IEEE Std 1012 - IEEE Standard for Software Verification and Validation


From IEEE Software Engineering Standards Collection:

IEEE Std 1012. This standard has a threefold purpose:

a. to provide, for both critical and non-critical software, uniform and minimum requirements for the format and content of Software Verification and Validation Plans (SVVPs);

b. to define, for critical software, specific minimum Verification and Validation (V&V) tasks and their required inputs and outputs that shall be included in SVVPs; and

c. to suggest optional V&V tasks to be used to tailor SVVPs as appropriate for the particular V&V effort.
