It's a close call between (A) and (B) but I would go with (B) - Verification. :ugeek:

and here's why -

If we go by PMBOK Definition -

Validation - 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. Contrast with verification.

Verification - The evaluation of whether or not a product, service, or system complies with a regulation, requirement, specification, or imposed condition. It is often an internal process. Contrast with validation.

To help understand the difference -

Validation is - Are you building the right thing?

and

Verification is - Are you building it right? :mrgreen:

Isn't Validation 'Are you building the right WAY?'

Validation is Customer checking... Verification is for Project team

Thanks Saket and Namita for simplifying the understanding
Validation is Customer checking that Are you building the right thing?
Verification is Project team / manager check Are you building it in right way?

Can we categorize some of the 47 processes into these two ?

I got the term but now confused following processes would come under which classification

5.5 Validate Scope
8.2 Perform Quality Assurance
8.3 Control Quality
