Design Verification Plan & Report (DVP&R) - Overview and Application

In this one-day seminar on Design Verification Plan and Report Overview and Application students will be introduced to important concepts, the basic theory behind the concepts, and discuss how these concepts can be applied to the client's design reliability activities. Participant involvement will be maximized to demonstrate and reinforce the concepts through reading assignments, group discussions, and exercises where students will begin a DVP&R on a client product.

What Will You Learn

Upon completion of this course the participants will be able to:
  • Differentiate between verification and validation concepts and activities
  • Explain the purpose of verification and validation activities
  • Identify role of verification and validation within the design development and review process
  • Describe the “V” model
  • Plan for verification and validation activities
  • Select the correct techniques for verification and final validation
  • Complete basic DVP&R templates
  • Describe the relationship between the DVP&R, the DFMEA and other review/analysis techniques

Is This Course For You
