Abstract: This brief will introduce to the community the INCOSE Guide to Verification and Validation, a work-in-progress of the INCOSE Requirements Working Group (RWG). The context of the Guide with respect to the other RWG documents under development will be shared. These other documents are the forthcoming Guide to Managing Requirements (GMR), and the Needs and Requirements Lifecycle Manual (NRLM). A very top-level table of contents of the Guide to V&V will be presented, along with a timeframe for completion and release. The attendee will leave with an understanding of what documents are in-process from the RWG, how they will eventually all fit together, and an approximate timeline for their release to the INCOSE community.
