Design Verification Plan & Report (DVP&R) - Overview and Application C1512

Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance

In this one-day seminar on Design Verification Plan and Report Overview and Application students will be introduced to important concepts, the basic theory behind the concepts, and discuss how these concepts can be applied to the client's design reliability activities. Participant involvement will be maximized to demonstrate and reinforce the concepts through reading assignments, group discussions, and exercises where students will begin a DVP&R on a client product.
Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Differentiate between verification and validation concepts and activities
  • Explain the purpose of verification and validation activities
  • Identify role of verification and validation within the design development and review process
  • Describe the “V” model
  • Plan for verification and validation activities
  • Select the correct techniques for verification and final validation
  • Complete basic DVP&R templates
  • Describe the relationship between the DVP&R, the DFMEA and other review/analysis techniques

Who Should Attend

This course provides training to a manufacturer’s engineering, development, operations, quality and administrative personnel. These individuals are typically involved in the development and production of parts for direct use in the manufacture of automobiles, or other manufactured products. These individuals either are or will be part of a team responsible for planning and carrying out Validation activities to customer requirements and or Verification of product’s compliance with specifications.


Participants should be able to review and interpret customer requirements and should be able to identify tests/computer analyses related to these requirements.
