The development of new digital technology needs extensive verification, validation and testing (VVT). An effective way of analysing the requirements of different stakeholders – that is the customer's voice, regulations and business' voice and how these requirements must be considered in the VV&T planning for new technology – is significantly important. This tool will help you step through the systematic VVT planning process. 

This is an online tool based on a systematic method of analysing the needs of engineers and the musts from customers and regulations. Using this method, VVT activities can be prioritised to support decision-making based on feasibility and business affordability. The tool can be used by interested parties who will be able to visually analyse the transition of requirements to risk analysis to prioritisation and the impact of their choices.
