Computational mechanisms (complex structures of functionally connected algorithms) are developed very frequently by both the academia and the industry for specific applications, but the transferability to other applications is seldom addressed and systematically tested. This raises the need for application validity of constructive computational methodologies (CCMs). First, this background research paper clarifies the fundamental concepts related to application validation. Applicability validation focusses on the indicators of appropriateness with regards to a particular purpose. Then, it surveys the various approaches of application validation based on the publications available in contemporary literature. Its main finding is that applicability validation of CCMs seems to be a stepchild of academic research. The same applies to the industrial exploration of the applicability of CCMs tailored to a narrow family of applications to a wider range of applications.
