1 Part 1: Fundamentals of the V-Modell

1.2 Objectives and Structure of the V-Modell

1.2.3 Objectives of the V-Modell

The »V-Modell provides guidance for the planning and realization of »Projects. The following objectives are intended to be achieved by a project execution »Project Compliant to the V-Modell:

Minimization of Project Risks

The V-Modell improves project transparency and project control by specifying standardized approaches and describing the corresponding results and responsible »Roles. It permits an early recognition of planning deviations and risks and improves process management, thus reducing the project risk.

Improvement and Guarantee of Quality

As a standardized process model, the V-Modell ensures that the results to be provided are complete and have the desired quality. Defined interim results can be checked at an early stage. Uniform product contents will improve readability, understandability and verifiability.

Reduction of Total Cost over the Entire Project and System Life Cycle

The effort for the development, production, operation and maintenance of a system can be calculated, estimated and controlled in a transparent manner by applying a standardized process model. The results obtained are uniform and easily retraced. This reduces the acquirers dependency on the supplier and the effort for subsequent activities and projects.

Improvement of Communication between all Stakeholders

The standardized and uniform description of all relevant elements and terms is the basis for the mutual understanding between all stakeholders. Thus, the frictional loss between user, acquirer, supplier and developer is reduced.
