Validation of Computer Systems

  • Richard R. Mahaffey


The first section of this chapter provides a chronological description of a sampling of work and publications which document milestones along the path out of confusion in the 1970s to the current understanding of validation concepts. This section also provides a general overview of the purpose of computer system validation and of which computer systems require validation. The next section presents a working definition of computer systems validation by examining the work of R.C. Branning. A subsequent section describes the validation life cycle approach to computer systems validation.
