Software and Systems Engineering Standards: Life Cycle Processes

  • Online

This course shows systems engineers how to use IEEE standards for life cycle processes, understand life cycle and engineering process concepts, select and apply useful systems and software engineering standards, and employ special considerations for the critical programs of defense and aerospace. It helps engineers to prepare for complex issues through interrelated life cycle processes and how to use agile techniques for rapid delivery without sacrificing quality and meeting customer demands.

What will you learn:

  • Define the benefits and purpose of the verification and validation processes
  • Describe the application of the verification and validation processes within a system of interest
  • Explain how integrity levels are used to tailor the verification and validation effort
  • Understand how to use the IEEE 1012 Standard
  • Describe various approaches to verification and validation testing

This course is part of the following course program:
