In large systems such as weapons systems or enterprise business systems, validation of the requirements and verification of system performance are often performed by completely separate and independent teams. This often results in greater resources being used, which results in greater cost of acquisition. However, by tailoring the requirements validation process during the systems engineering and detailed design efforts to produce reusable models of the system software, these models can then be reused to increase the level of automation in the scenario planning, execution, and analysis during Test and Evaluation (T&E). We present our method of reusing engineering models to provide increased analysis coverage during system verification. We also describe our automated retest capability and discuss policy issues related to automated testing of components on the desktop.
