After prototyping, the product is moved to the next phase of the design cycle: Design Refinement. Engineers revise and improve the design to meet performance and design requirements and specifications. Design Verification Testing is performed to deliver objective, comprehensive testing verifying all product specifications, interface standards, OEM requirements, and diagnostic commands.
Core Systems' thorough, objective DVT methodology delivers objective, comprehensive testing to verify all product specifications, interface standards, OEM requirements, and diagnostic commands.
DVT is an intensive testing program consisting of five areas of testing:
Functional Testing (including usability)
Process (or Pilot) Verification Test (PVT)
Subset of Design Verification Tests (DVT)
Performed on pre-production or production units
Verifies design has been correctly implemented into production
Engineering Verification Testing (EVT)
Identifying design problems and solving them as early in the design cycle as possible, is key to keeping your project on schedule and within budget. Ofentimes, product design and performance problems are not detected until late in the product development cycle or during initial product deployment. In the Prototyping stage, engineers create actual working samples of the product they plan to produce.
Engineering Verification Testing (EVT) is used on prototypes to verify that the design meets pre-determined specifications and design goals. This valuable information is used to validate the design as is, or identify areas that need to be modified. Core Systems proven EVT testing process helps clients to quickly identify and resolve design issues early in the design cycle, improving future product performance while saving time and money.
Consists of basic functional tests, parametric measurements, specification verification
Is performed on first engineering prototypes
Ensures basic unit performance to design goals and specifications
