Abstract [en]

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 an abstractly defined reference 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 neither prescriptive in nature, nor directly tied to any specific M&S application domain, standard, technology, organization or other distinctive M&S context related VV&A details. The GM-VV provides a three tier reference framework that consists of a conceptual, an implementation and a tailoring framework. The first two are aimed at facilitating communication, understanding and implementation of VV&A across and between different M&S contexts. The tailoring framework is applied to cost-efficiently develop and apply concrete VV&A method instantiations that meet the individual M&S organization, project, technology or application domain needs and constraints. This paper demonstrates how the established VV&A overlay for the FEDEP (IEEE 1516.4) is encompassed by the GM-VV and how it can be derived from its reference framework. A mapping between the VV&A Overlay terminology, definitions and concepts, and those of the GM-VV is provided. Detailed mappings of the VV&A overlay roles, processes and products onto the GM-VV implementation framework components illustrate the tailoring of GM-VV towards a VV&A method instance that fits a specific M&S technology, the FEDEP (1516.3). These mappings serve as an educational example to improve the understanding of the GM-VV purpose, usage and relationship to other VV&A standards.
