Abstract:

Work on VV of models, simulations and data was initiated in 2002 through several projects such as REVVA1, REVVA2 and MEVAS. MSG-073 Task Group was a follow-up on earlier efforts within NATO and the former US DoD DMSO Defence Modeling and Simulation Office, which was renamed to US DoD MSCO Modeling and Simulation Coordination Office. The objective of MSG-073 was to provide a path into the creation of an internationally accepted VVA standard, GM-VV Generic Methodology for VV through the SISO Simulation Interoperability Standards Organisation. The GM-VV provides a technical framework to efficiently develop arguments to justify why MS assets are acceptable or unacceptable for a specific intended use. This argumentation supports MS stakeholders in their acceptance decision making process regarding the development, application and reuse of such MS assets. The GM-VV technical framework assures that during the execution of the VV work the decisions, actions, information and evidence underlying such acceptance arguments will be traceable, reproducible, transparent and documented. Since the GM-VV is a generic i.e. abstract methodology it must be tailored to fit the specific VV needs of an MS organization, project or application domain. Therefore, VV practitioners must incorporate specific VV techniques within the generic architectural template offered by the GM-VV in order to properly assess the MS assets under review.
