M&S Verification, Validation, and Accreditation (VV&A)

T&E Solutions personnel have performed M&S verification, validation, and accreditation (VV&A) tasking in support of several Navy Programs. We have led and/or participated in the development of VV&A documentation for the following models and simulations:

Verification is the process of determining if Models & Simulations accurately represent the developer's conceptual description and specifications and meets the needs stated in the requirements document.

Validation is the process of determining the extent to which Models & Simulations adequately represents the real-world from the perspective of its intended use. This process ranges from single modules to the entire system.

Accreditation is an official determination that a Model or Simulation is acceptable for its intended purpose.
