This paper adopts the idea of using knowledge gained by various validation sessions over time with a validation technology developed previously. The work is designed to reduce the human involvement needed to apply this technology. It introduces the reuse of test cases with the "best solution", discovered in previous validation sessions. This reduces the number of test cases to be solved and rated by the experts within the validation process. By reducing the workload of the involved experts, the costs of validation can be reduced. Moreover, this approach may compensate for possible shortages of expertise available for the validation process.
