Verification Process

The Verification Process is the method to provide the evidence that the system or system element performs its intended functions and meets all performance requirements listed in the system performance specification and functional and allocated baselines. Verification is a key risk-reduction activity in the implementation and integration of a system and enables the program to catch defects in system elements before integration at the next level, thereby preventing costly troubleshooting and rework. This sub-topical area contains information on the Verification Process found in the Systems Engineering Guidebook Section 4.2.6.
