From Model Based Systems Engineering to Model Based System Realization: Role and Relevance of IVTV Plan

Conference paper
Part of the IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology book series (IFIPAICT, volume 438)


The IVTV Plan (Integration, Verification, Transition and Validation of the system before its Qualification) is developed and validated during the design stage. It details all the activities, resources, requirements, means, etc. requested during the realization stage so it is the hyphen between these two crucial stages in system life cycle. It is today necessary to help companies to better transfer detailed design models towards realization for many reasons discussed in this paper. Mainly, IVTV plan remains difficult to be exploited. This article proposes a first step towards a Model-Based Realization Plan, that is, a meta-model that represents the links between models that comes from Model-Based System Engineering and information required in the IVTV plan.
