What is Design Verification Testing and Why Should I care

Design Verification Testing (DVT) is one of the stage-gate processes for developing a product. The DVT stage verifies that the engineering drawings, if followed correctly, will produce a product that will meet the product requirements. In short, a DVT proves the design “works” where “works” = meets the requirements.

A DVT is important for several reasons:

  1. It proves the drawing set.
  2. It prevents scrappage in production.
  3. It improves product reliability.
  4. It improves customer satisfaction.
  5. It lowers the prototype to production cost.
  6. It reduces product liability cost.
  7. It ensures legal compliance with government regulations.
