Today industries do not only require fast simulation techniques but also verification techniques for the simulations. The proper generalized decomposition (PGD) has been situated as a suitable tool for fast simulation for many physical phenomena. However, so far, verification tools for the PGD are under development. The PGD approximation error mainly comes from two different sources. The first one is related with the truncation of the PGD approximation and the second one is related with the discretization error of the underlying numerical technique. In this work we propose a fast error indicator technique based on recovery techniques, for the discretization error of the numerical technique used by the PGD technique, for refinement purposes.
