IV&V AND CERTIFICATION
Fitness for Purpose
Having a "cold pair of eyes" review your work is proven to be one of the most effective strategies to ensure high-quality results.
Independently verifying, validating, and certifying your integrated systems (even if mandated) can identify inherent flaws before they manifest as failures so you can engineer operational excellence.
You may think you can "save a few bucks" by doing it all yourself, but what you are really doing is gambling hoping it works. You should ask yourself: "can I afford an incident during a critical operation?" If the answer is no, keep reading.
