IEEE standard 1012 [33] focuses on verification & validation (V&V) processes and applies to systems, software, and hardware being developed, maintained, or reused (e.g., Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) components). V&V processes include the analysis, evaluation, review, inspection, assessment, and testing of products. V&V may be performed at the level of the system, software element, or hardware element, or on any combination of these. V&V may also be performed on an element of a system, including a subordinate system (i.e., subsystem). In each case, the V&V processes are invoked, either in parallel or recursively, across the full life cycle of the system or element.
