Abstract: Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) involves testing activity that is done by a third party independent from development activities of a product. A key activity for this third party is to conduct agreed examination to determine requirements are met and to also ensure a product is developed with quality and expectations are consistent with the customers’ expectation. This paper discusses a proposal for an improved software Independent Verification & Validation Model-based test design using Risk Based Test approach. This approach depends on a set of selected criteria that can help to provide risk assignment using Traceability Matrix as a reference point and a dynamic tracking approach using outcome of the development and V&V results that will help to prioritize test case allocation, to improve effectiveness and to discover defects for the IV&V team. This approach is also examined from a tester’s perspective by helping IV&V engineers to discover efficient method of identifying and documenting various stages of product development and test.
