In a recent blog for EETimes, Mike Bartley (founder and CEO of T&VS) emphasized the need for  Moving Towards Requirements-Driven Verification & Test.  A short abstract of the article is enclosed below.

Due to the rising complexity, time-to-market demands, and variability involved in building requirements of critical hardware and software systems, it is absolutely essential to have a robust requirements sign-off capability. It’s particularly applicable for systems where the financial cost of failure is significant, when systems are safety-critical, or where there is a high security factor.

Our industry has moved from directed, to constrained random, to metric-driven — is RDVT the next step in its evolution?
