Intensity and Rigor -The level of V&V activity required for any IT project will vary based on the integrity level. Higher integrity levels require greater IV&V intensity and rigor. Translated, projects that are mission critical need more testing effort than those that are lower in priority. Intensity includes a greater or deeper scope of analysis, rigor includes more formal techniques and recoding procedures.
Integrity Level - Based on the IEEE 1012-2012 standard as it relates to IV&V activities, it provides a method for managers to estimate the level and type of independent testing required for any given development effort. Integrity levels drive the level and detail of IV&V work, whether an IV&V team should perform testing, observe and review testing output, or take no action on testing activities.
Verification - Provides objective evidence for whether products conform to requirements, satisfy standards, practices, and conventions, have successfully completed the life cycle phase requirements, and meet the criteria for moving into the next lifecycle phase.
