Construction Quality Planning Guide, Draft for Consultation, Published by the Construction Innovation Hub in May 2020, suggests that design validation implies: ‘Does the design provide the solution required by the customer?’
Whereas design verification implies: ‘Is the design error free?’
A Design Verification Plan and Report (DVP&R) is: ‘A planning tool for the systematic determination that a product or process meets its design specifications and performance requirements. Closely tied to FMEA (Failure Mode Effects Analysis); FMEA determines the ‘what’ in anticipating potential failures while DVP&R focuses on the ‘how’.’
