Continuous validation and verification

Engineering a product is a risky and complicated process and the cost of building it wrong has never been higher. The number of new features users and customers expect with each new release continues to increase at a frantic pace, along with expectations for improved ease of use, higher reliability and greater safety features. With much more embedded software in these products, design errors can go undetected until after the products have been shipped and sold. These problems are largely a result of the complexity associated with product design. To address today’s manufacturing challenges, companies are adopting the practice of continuous engineering.
