Abstract: This brief will introduce to the community the INCOSE Guide to Verification and Validation, a work-in-progress of the INCOSE Requirements Working Group (RWG). The context of the Guide with respect to the other RWG documents under development will be shared. These other documents are the forthcoming Guide to Managing Requirements (GMR), and the Needs and Requirements Lifecycle Manual (NRLM). A very top-level table of contents of the Guide to V&V will be presented, along with a timeframe for completion and release. The attendee will leave with an understanding of what documents are in-process from the RWG, how they will eventually all fit together, and an approximate timeline for their release to the INCOSE community.

He has experience on many types of projects - from software development work to multi-year defense programs. Currently he performs system engineering, requirements development and qualification engineering for several development products. He has also performed requirements engineering and management, safety engineering, and verification strategy implementation. Before joining Sandia he worked at the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR) San Diego (formerly SPAWAR). There, he matured requirements for several programs, performed R&D, and supported acquisition for several ship-board technology upgrades. His interests include using MBSE to improve requirements analysis, and overall SE process improvement. He has presented at several INCOSE conferences.
