Wk 02. Verification and Validation Fundamentals

Lecture Date: August 31, 2020 - Monday
Lecturer: Dr. Hamdi Kavak

In this lecture, we will discuss the basics of verification and validation (V&V) of models. We will start with V&V and its terminology from the lenses of different domains, such as modeling and simulation, software engineering, and systems engineering. Then, we will briefly talk about how simulation verification evolved. Since V&V is not an independent part of model development, we will investigate V&V’s role in various well-respected model development processes and lifecycles. Finally, the lecture will be completed by introducing different types of verification and validation techniques.
