Verification and validation unit focuses on quality at TSSG.

TSSG’s Catherine Cunniffe says that verification and validation (V&V) are key to deriving quality software from research.

Cunniffe said that the V&V group works with both internal research and external clients, ranging from innovation partners in Ireland to companies in Europe and Silicon Valley.

Practical work includes code reviews, studying the software configuration management, and testing the software before it can be released to market.

“We try to ensure that we are building good quality software from the get-go,” she said.
