Presentation Title: Verification by Documentation

With all the innovations in tools to help with functional closure, one that is not fully appreciated is the need for disciplined documentation at every stage of verification. Documentation often is a victim of tight schedules and yet lack of it remains the root cause of schedule slips, many escapes, delays and churn in projects. We will explore different kinds of documents and shine light on this problem. We claim, without due appreciation of this, we can not close the verification gap.
