Determination of the correctness of the products of software development with respect to the user needs and requirements. [ SIGIST ]

Other Definitions

Validation [ ISO 8402, ISO/IEC 9126-1
Confirmation by examination and provision of objective evidence that the particular requirements for a specific intended use are fulfilled.
Validation [ ISO/IEC 15288
Confirmation, through the provision of objective evidence, that the requirements for a specific intended use or application have been fulfilled.
Validation [ IEEE 1012
The process of providing evidence that the software and its associated products satisfy system requirements allocated to software at the end of each life cycle activity, solve the right problem, and satisfy intended use and user needs.
Validation [ ISO/IEC 12207
In a life cycle context, the set of activities ensuring and gaining confidence that a system is able to accomplish its intended use, goals and objectives.
Validation [ IEEE 1233
The process of evaluating a system or component during or at the end of the development process to determine whether a system or component satisfies specified requirements.
Validation [ IEEE 1490
The assurance that a product, service, or system meets the needs of the customer and other identified stakeholders. It often involves acceptance and suitability with external customers.

Notes

  • In design and development, validation concerns the process of examining a product to determine conformity with user needs. [ ISO/IEC 9126-1 ]
  • Validation is normally performed on the final product under defined operating conditions. It may be necessary in earlier stages. [ ISO/IEC 9126-1 ]
  • "Validated" is used to designate the corresponding status. [ ISO/IEC 9126-1 ]
  • Multiple validations may be carried out if there are different intended uses. [ ISO/IEC 9126-1 ]
  • Validation demonstrates that the system can be used by the users for their specific tasks. "Validated" is used to designate the corresponding status. [ISO 9000:2005] In design and development, validation concerns the process of examining a product to determine conformity with user needs. Validation is normally performed on the final product under defined operating conditions. It may be necessary in earlier stages. Multiple validations may be carried out if there are different intended uses. [ ISO/IEC/IEEE 24765 ]
