With ever tightening IT budgets and the increased visibility of software system failures, there is a need for an objective organization with the business and technical knowledge to know if your system is ready for production. Not only as designed - but with a design that truly meets your needs.
Linear B offers independent verification and validation (IV&V) services that strive to facilitate early detection and correction of flaws, enhance management insight into risks and ensure compliance with your systems technical, performance, schedule, and budget requirements.
IV&V can be thought of as “Project Due Diligence” or “Independent Project Oversight,” since it is an investigation of performance and risk based on standards and best practices. The primary objective of an IV&V engagement is to provide an objective assessment of products and processes throughout the project lifecycle.
Our team of experienced professionals have the skills to review all aspects of your project from inception to completion. Staff members with experience in all aspects of the development lifecycle, including Analysis and Design, Development, Test and Evaluation and Project Management, we have the skills to successfully perform a comprehensive verification and validation for your project.
Throughout the project lifecycle, Linear B will refine our understanding, validate our findings, and focus on identifying specific improvements that we think will make a tangible difference to the project. We will also provide tools, templates, and sample plans as appropriate as part of an IV&V engagement.
The Linear B IV&V methodology is derived from concepts and standards such as the process maturity framework developed by the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute’s Software Capability Maturity Model Integration (SEI CMMI) and IEEE Std 1012 IEEE Standard for Software Verification and Validation.
