Verification and validation processes and assessments.

Verification and validation are deemed essential from the standpoint of communication, legal approval, and product placement.

Participants in this course are exposed to test procedures and methodology, verification and validation processes and assessments related to the safety-related systems design. In the practical part of the course, students will be able to create a test plan for the safety-relevant area and coordinate it with the overall project management plan. They will learn in depth the test selection procedures and available methods of automated test design. Safety requirements will be expressed in models with the adequate selection of tools and methods to adapt a test process to the conditions of a safety-critical project/product. Using test reports as evidence, students will integrate the test results into the safety case.

Course Highlights:

  • Basics of Testing and Quality Control
  • Lifecycle Testing
  • Test Management, methods, reporting and tools.
  • Testing in accordance with safety standards
