The V-Model framework is a structured testing approach that can be used with any project management or system development methodology (see Figure 4.6). The framework emphasizes quality from the initial requirements stage through the final testing stage. It focuses on testing throughout the development life cycle, early development of test requirements, and early detection of errors. Each major deliverable in the development process is assessed, verified, validated, and tested. Work proceeds to the next stage in the V-Model when all project deliverables in a stage have met all verification and validation requirements. The process of verification and validation is an attempt to catch as many errors as possible in the development life cycle, otherwise know as stage containment.
