Validation: Are we building the right system?Verification: Are we building the system right?In other words, validation is concerned with checking that the system
will meet the customer’s actual needs, while verification is concerned
with whether the system is well-engineered, error-free, and so on.
Verification will help to determine whether the software is of
quality, but it will not ensure that the system is useful.
