In the development of a complex system, early integration and continual validation of major functional blocks and interfaces is an important best practice. Significant design changes near the end of the development cycle (late integration) or postponing system performance measurements (late validation) increase risk.

Include integration and validation milestones in your project planning and support them with a plan to confirm system functionality and performance throughout the development cycle. Starting as early as possible and incrementally including as much functionality as practical provides the most time for system evaluation under representative workloads. This recommendation complements the commonly used bottom-up design approach, facilitating design reuse and IP-based design.
