To ensure the accuracy of the results produced with ProteusDS, DSA continually validates and verifies the software output using an extensive series of tests. To demonstrate these efforts the document (which can be downloaded below) has been created that describes key validation efforts undertaken, and the quality standards used in the development of ProteusDS. Secondly, the overall software quality assurance process DSA uses while developing ProteusDS is outlined.

This document¬†provides references to key publications which describe in detail validation efforts (benchmarking studies, tank test comparisons, comparison with real-world data, etc.). A listing of DSA’s internal software checking tests are also provided. These tests must pass for DSA to release a new version of the software. Software validation and verification is on ongoing process, that is a top priority for DSA.
