VERIFICATION, VALIDATION & ACCREDITATION/ACCEPTANCE (VV&A) PRODUCTS
The Terms of Reference (SISO-TOR-016-2014) for the Verification, Validation and Accreditation/Acceptance (VV&A) Products Product Support Group (PSG) was approved on 8 December 2014.  The PSG operates as a focused task-organized group concentrating on the support of all approved VV&A products and potential future products.  Existing approved products include:
  • IEEE Std 1516.4TM-2007 IEEE Recommended Practice for Verification, Validation, and Accreditation of a Federation - an Overlay to the High Level Architecture Federation Development and Execution Process
  • SISO-GUIDE-001.1-2012: Guide for Generic Methodology for Verification and Validation (GM-VV) to Support Acceptance of Models, Simulations, and Data, GM-VV Volume 1: Introduction and Overview
  • SISO-GUIDE-001.2-2013: Guide for Generic Methodology for Verification and Validation (GM-VV) to Support Acceptance of Models, Simulations, and Data, GM-VV Volume 2: Implementation Guide 
  • SISO-REF-2013: Reference for Generic Methodology for Verification and Validation (GM-VV) to Support Acceptance of Models, Simulations, and Data, GM-VV Vol. 3: Reference Manual
The PSG offers continuity and a place for users of the products to:

a. ask questions concerning the language used in the product, the intention or result meant by a particular action;
b. request an explanation of the reasons behind what the product says;
c. seek support; and
d. register change requests for subsequent versions of the product.
The PSG serves as the central point for interpretations of product language, providing help desk support, and accepting, developing, and maintaining Problem Report/Change Requests to support future product revisions.  The PSG also collaborates with NATO Task Groups that address VV&A-related issues.
