The PDG is developing IEEE 1730.2 Distributed Simulation Engineering and Execution Process (DSEEP) Verification and Validation (V&V) Overlay.  The V&V Overlay has been designed to apply across a wide range of functional applications. The purpose of this overlay is to provide a more detailed view of the V&V processes implied by the DSEEP. Currently, these processes represent the best practices available to the VV&A community. The V&V Overlay is a tailorable process and is offered as guidance to all participants in DSEEP activities.  This recommended practice provides a higher-level framework into which V&V  practices can be integrated and tailored for specific uses. The V&V Overlay provides implementation level guidance to V&V practitioners; however, it does not describe the individual techniques that might be employed to execute the V&V processes for distributed simulations.
