SIVandV has been in existence for some 40 years, and many people still know little about its existence. Software IVandV certifies the quality of the software and independently validates and verifies that it meets or exceeds the customer[alpha]s expectations. Independent VandV for component or element software development activities encompasses the following: 1) review and thorough evaluations of the software development, 2) review and comment on software documentation, 3) participation in all software requirements and design reviews, and 4) participation in software integration and testing for each software build. This thesis will explore and explain the benefits and rationale for Software Independent Verification and Validation. It will identify SIVandV processes that are used to support acquisition weapon systems. [beta]SIVandV Simplified[gamma] will translate, into understandable terms, why SIVandV is considered [beta]Cheap Insurance[gamma] and why it is needed. Additionally, this thesis serves as a tutorial, providing suggested policy and guidance, suggested software Computer-Aided Software Engineering (CASE) tools, criteria, and lessons learned for implementing a successful SIVandV program.
