plausibility

Plausibility means as much as conclusiveness or coherence. A statement becomes coherent, correct or credible when it is logically comprehensible and the measured or calculated result is consistent with an estimated result.

Plausibility is about the accuracy of a statement or value without checking, measuring or recalculating all the information in detail. If the measured or calculated value differs with the estimated value, the statement is implausible. In information technology and online technology, plausibility checks are used, among other things, for entries in databases, for transactions in online banking, for online orders to avoid junk orders or in Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI).
