The issue of assessing software quality is an important challenge as software components are more and more often embedded within safety critical systems, in potentially hazardous applications. There is also a tendency for integrating in such systems knowledge-based software components especially for control and monitoring processes. This paper suggests that knowledge-based system software has specific properties which classic software lacks. These are important for validation purposes and thus for quality assessment. Validation techniques based on specific knowledge-based system properties are described in this paper.
