NPFC - MIL-STD-3022
DOCUMENTATION OF VERIFICATION, VALIDATION, AND ACCREDITATION (VV&A) FOR MODELS AND SIMULATIONS
|Publication Date:||5 April 2012|
This standard establishes templates for the four core products of the Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Verification, Validation, and Accreditation (VV&A) processes: Accreditation Plan; V&V Plan; V&V Report, and Accreditation Report. These documents are normally prepared and used at different times and by different groups, much of the information included in each is common and should be shared. The templates provide a common framework and interfacing capability between the four documents and support consistency and efficiency. Additionally, the plans and reports produced by following the templates serve as a communications device between the participants in the VV&A processes. Specific templates for each document are found in the appendices.
Purpose. The purpose of this standard is to provide a common framework for sharing information throughout the VV&A processes. The common method of documentation benefits participants in the VV&A processes by eliminating unnecessary redundancy and facilitating reuse of information when accrediting an M&S for an intended use.
Application. This standard is applicable to the VV&A of all M&S developed, used, or managed by the Department of Defense or any of its Components.

This DoD Standard Practice is intended to support the verification, validation, and accreditation of DoD models, simulations, federations, and other types of distributed simulations by providing a common framework for documenting information produced during the VV&A processes. This DoD Standard Practice specifies procedures for documenting information obtained through implementing the verification, validation, and accreditation processes for M&S when the outputs will be used to supplement decisionmaking in the DoD. These types of information, at least some of the time, are obtained via contract from commercial firms. This standard practice may be cited as a contractual requirement in contracts for the verification, validation, or accreditation of all M&S developed, used, or managed by the DoD.View Less
