comment Validation and verification in CMMi, ISO, IEEE. What should I refer to?
@darrick: Acceptance testing is for sure validation, not verification. In acceptance test, the customer decides whether or not this is acceptable and fit for purpose.

Exactly. I want to justify the ISO. But how can I justify that unit testing is validation against intended use?

I did not make myself clear. The question "Do I build it right" is a good one but how do you know it is related to working instead of meeting requirements as stated in ISO? E.g. that code is testable, traceable to design, etc. Actually what you said would be validation because its testing whether it works as intended.

Andrew, I do feel it the same way, yet the contradictions in other standards makes me confused. If you check that IEEE, it verifies/validates each artifact, not saying anything about testing. But as I mentioned earlier, the "requirement for intended use" is a bit vague term because as a tester, I can have just functional spec based on requirements which could be misunderstood. So the thing is what is the source for test cases?

@Andrew Sorry, it is IEEE Std 1012 Standard for Verification and Validation.

comment Fundamental classification- discrepancies
@Phil Kirkham I would just like to know, especially about exploratory testing. I do think it is functional testing (testing functionality), however there are no documents so it does not fit the definition well..
