Software Delivery Verification(SDV)/Fu Qiao
The validation of post-software deployment, conducted in two parts: Part 1) Validation of the installation manifests will be performed against the requirements (probably defined in a machine-readable format in PDF 2.0) and the software repositories; Part 2) Validation (comparison) of actual installation vs. the expected installation through log, directory, components, configuration, and software stack. Apart from ensuring that the requirements are met, this validation helps in minimizing/eliminating any deployment errors, drives test-automation, and checks for consistency to achieve efficient automation. The below picture summarizes the scope (in red dashed rectangle) of the software validation.
