Question on Definitions • Questions re definitions of Verification / Validation/ etc. have been raised • API 17A will take responsibilities for definitions • API 17N will provide technical input / expertise Thanks You’s • To Everyone Involved – – – – – Workgroup Leaders Participants Workshop Attendees Astrimar BSEE • Large Amount of Effort by everyone • Large amount of detail developed, considered and Worked • Even with the Growth in Scope, effort continued and quality maintained • A great deal of quality work was completed!
