The process of assessing a software product for compliance with end-user or customer demands is called design validation. The process of UX design is incomplete without design validation, as it can greatly assist UX teams in making well-informed revisions and producing user-centered products. The goal of design validation is to validate a software application after it has been developed to ensure that it fits the requirements for applications in the user’s environment. 

Design Validation

System-level testing and secondary or more advanced integration are included in design validation. Before starting any design work, the strategy for validating a fresh concept or design change must be precisely outlined, approved, and recorded. Validation should be done on sample lots before beginning production runs. The design validation needs to attest to the process’s or product’s compliance with customer demands.


Q1. What is process vs design validation?

Design validation checks that the device can be used for the intended purpose or application, whereas process validation shows that the production process can effectively yield a product that satisfies the predefined requirements (design and development). 

Q2. What are the four levels of design Validation?

To properly validate the design, there are four layered levels: domain scenario, task and data abstraction, visual rendering and interaction phrase, and algorithm.

Q3. What are the types of validation and verification techniques?

Desk-checking, inspection, code review, and walkthroughs are a few techniques for verification. White box testing, integration testing, acceptance testing, and black box testing are a few popular validation techniques.
