Abstract: A recurring issue in bids and projects is the definition of an optimized integration, verification, validation, and qualification (IVVQ) strategy which can be easily communicated and shared between all the stakeholders. No existing tool has been identified so far in order to ensure continuity and consistency of the data engineered from the Product Breakdown Structure (PBS) up to the integration and test sequence and schedule of a solution (PERT diagram). After a de-risking phase, the tool MAESTRIA has been developed under Eclipse, based on a specific meta-model and implementing the major steps of this value chain. Subsequently, the graphical representation of the IVVQ strategy, once it is defined, can efficiently be exploited for visual management.
