The GM-VV: It’s Relationship to the VV&A Overlay for the FEDEP

By Z.C. Roza, J.M. Voogd and C. Giannoulis

Abstract

The Generic Methodology for Verification and Validation (GM-VV) is a generic methodology for VV&A to justify the acceptability of models, simulation, underlying data and results for an intended use. This methodology is currently in the processes of standardization within the SISO. The GM-VV attains its genericness from a framework approach, instead of trying to cover or merge all possible and existing VV&A methods into a single “one-size-fits-all” VV&A method implementation. This means that the GM-VV is not prescriptive in nature, nor directly tied to any specific M&S application domain, standard, technology, organization or other distinctive M&S context related implementation details for VV&A. The GM-VV’s technical framework provides common semantics, concepts and tailorable building blocks for VV&A, which aims to facilitate communication, understanding and implementation of VV&A across and between such different M&S contexts. Moreover, this framework also provides the tailoring principles and guidance to cost-efficiently develop and apply VV&A method instantiations from its technical framework, which support the individual M&S organization, project, technology or application domain needs and constrains. This paper demonstrates how the existing VV&A overlay to the FEDEP can be derived from the GM-VV. The illustration shows the mapping between the VV&A overlay terminology, definitions and concepts, and the generic ones provided by the GM-VV technical framework. The presented detailed mappings of the VV&A overlay roles, processes and products onto the GM-VV generic building blocks illustrates the tailoring of the GM-VV towards a VV&A method instance that fits a specific M&S technology (i.e. FEDEP). As such the paper provides readers with an educational example to help understand the GM-VV purpose, usage and relationship to other VV&A standards
