SOFTWARE VERIFICATION AND VALIDATION

Commercial Control Systems Software and Product Verification & Validation (PV&V)

Genova Technologies delivers software, system, and PV&V testing for customers in the aerospace and defense, agricultural, education, and transportation industries. This spans independent V&V for DO-178B/C certification testing and tool qualifications to Level A, as well as commercial Test Driven Development (TDD) programs for regression testing in both black-box (functional, systems, integration, acceptance) and white-box (unit, regression, integration) testing environments.

Our process employs rigorous CMMI methodologies for evaluating the correctness and quality of software products throughout the software life cycle, ensuring that the outcome and work product of a project meet the formal specifications.

Genova has developed test cases and procedures from high level, low level, and derived requirements, developed and executed black box and white box testing, and generated test results and artifacts for regulatory, quality, and management audits.

Genova provides expertise in safety critical software development and product verification and validation {function level – (call coverage) through condition level – (MC/DC)}; for such standards as:

  • DO-178B/C Software and DO-254 Complex Hardware Level A-E (avionics)
  • IEC 62304 (medical)
  • ISO 26262 ASIL D in part 6 (automotive)
  • IEC 61508 SIL 1-4, EN 50128, etc.

 Throughout the process, we refine our understanding, validate our findings, and focus on identifying specific improvements that will make a tangible difference to the project. We also provide project management tools, templates, and sample plans as part of PV&V engagements, and can provide full documentation and artifacts.
