Will Systems Engineers Validate your Software? Probably Not

By: Michael J Lowe II
April 18th, 2017

 Businesses want to validate software to make sure they end up with the best possible product at the end. When management asks, “Validate or fail?” the obvious, and hopefully enthusiastic, answer should be “Validate!” But can they convince engineering to do software validation? Not all companies have the luxury of hiring validation-specific engineers when they need to validate on a non-routine basis, so the regular engineers developing the product need to take on software validation. Overall, it can be a time-consuming project and no engineer really wants to take on this additional task when they have other deadlines to meet. Yet engineers do not want to be stuck validating the behind-the-scenes software they are using to build the products they are working on; they just want it to work, not take them away from their regular projects. Software validation is necessary to confirm it works in the way the company wants, though, and it’s important for the overall success of the products. It can help ensure that products work the way they were designed, and products that work improve profitability. So for companies that want good and profitable products, why not dramatically increase the chances of success from the get-go? Cognition’s Cockpit Platform is validated out-of-box by our own Validation Kit. This way, users can have an easier validation experience. The Validation Kit can also be used to re-validate as projects continue or as new projects arise. In addition, the kit is always updated for every major release, so nothing is left behind. It takes most of the engineers’ time out of the software validation equation and gives back their project-oriented time. Overall, validation can be difficult and confusing, and software validation is no exception to that. We can take the difficulties out of the process. To learn more about how Cognition’s Validation Kit can help organizations like yours, read this white paper about our Validation Kit. (Download below.)
