The primary objective of this Independent Verification and Validation IV and V effort is to help assure that development of the Global Deployment Analysis System GDAS results in a model that will perform as intended. This Independent Verification and Validation Management Plan IVVMP describes PSEs approach to the verification and validation of the model developers efforts. It is a living document that is updated periodically to document GDAS program changes and updates. This is the final version of the GDAS Phase II IVVMP. GDAS Phase II IV and V activities have not required an update of the initial Phase II IVVMP delivered in July 1990. Development of the GDAS is a 24-month project, executed in three phases. Phase I is complete. This IVVMP update addresses IV and V activities planned during phase II, a 12-month implementation phase during which the model developer was tasked to develop, document, and test all GDAS system functions. Phase III will follow with system integration, formal testing, and user training. A sound IV and V program will ensure that the quality of the model software is established early in the development phase and that this level of quality is maintained and increased as the software is tested, transitioned to the users, and entered into the operations and support phase of the life cycle. It will also promote an efficient design, quality code development, complete functionality, realistic data requirements, run-time efficiencies, and effective human factors engineering.
