Title of a section describing simulation tests.
Bharg
English translation:Pre-use tests; tests of satisfactory operation
Explanation:
It's the operation that needs to be satisfactory. (The assumption is that the test themselves, of course, must be capable of determining the satisfactory nature of the operation.) -- In the computer industry, the pre-use testing phase for a new piece of software is also universally known as the "alpha test" stage.
