Validation reveals differences between created objects and their objectives. The increasing number of mechatronic systems drives the interdisciplinary approach of Systems Engineering for product development and thus also validation. Complexity and scale of the individual subsystems of a system may increase to such an extent, that the system can be considered a “System of System” (SoS). These SoS can also be found in validation systems. To establish a common understanding, this contribution describes an approach to transfer Systems- and SoS Engineering to the domain of system validation.
